There's no doubt that serving this garlicky, buttery bread as a side dish for a meal is always a huge hit in my house. It can turn a mundane meal into a bit of a feast, no question about it.
And I have streamlined the process so that the bread is ready in no time at all, so it takes almost no effort.
I make a habit of picking up extra loaves of whole grain, Italian or French bread in our local grocery store bakery department when they go on sale for $1.
I take and use only the amount of bread I need for each meal by cutting them into meal size portions.
I store the rest away in meal size portions in the freezer for for another time.
