So you know those fancy little garlic chip things that are often served as appetizers at parties and such? The thin, rounded, sliced-to-perfection pieces of French baguette covered in garlicky goodness? Basically... crispy garlic bread? Well, sometimes I just get a craving for them. So I went on a kitchen mission to re-create the garlic chips I was craving.
I took three slices of regular sandwich bread from the freezer. (I keep my bread there because I can never get through a full loaf without it molding over on me.) I didn't defrost or anything like I'd normally do for a PB&J. Instead, I cut the three pieces of bread into quarters. With the oven pre-heating to 400-degrees, I buttered both sides of the bread pieces. Then I dabbed a bit of garlic (from a squeezy tube) onto each piece. (Just a bit though... a little does for me when it comes to garlic.) I also sprinkled all the pieces with basil and oregano.
On a cookie sheet covered with tin foil. (Don't skip the tin foil! Your pieces will stick! I know this because one piece edged off the foil and got stuck to the pan!) So anyway... I baked 'em on the tin foiled covered cookie sheet at 400-degrees for four minutes. Then I flopped them all over and baked another four-ish minutes, checking every minute or so for prime crispiness by reaching into the oven with the handle of a wooden spoon.
Garlic hankering vanquished. These are soooo good. Quite addictive. And maybe sometime when I'm heading to a party and feeling fancy, I'll do the same thing with fancy French baguette bread and have everyone ooh-and-ahh over my garlicky sorcery. Seriously. Soooo delish.
