Here's an easy recipe for garlic butter spread that you can also freeze from Walking on Sunshine Recipes.

Does your family love garlic bread as much as mine?

We love garlic bread and I love to make it for my family.  Usually I just spread
butter on the bread and then sprinkle on garlic powder.  

That all changed a few weeks ago when I discovered this easy garlic butter spread
recipe.  And then I took it to another step and decided to FREEZE the bread 
so we can have garlic bread with any meal

Not only is this garlic butter spread delicious on bread, but we love it on steamed vegetables, mostly steamed broccoli.  I've even used it on top of bake potatoes.  It stores well in the refrigerator and is very easy to make.  I made it for Easter Sunday and everyone loved.  In fact, I sent the jar I had in my refrigerator home with my brother, so I need to make more!

Easy Garlic Butter Spread

  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients together until they are blended.

To use right away:
Spread on sliced bread and place under the broiler until lightly browned.
To freeze:
Spread the garlic butter on top of sliced thick bread. I like to use French bread. Lay the bread on a baking tray and place the baking tray in the freezer for about 30 minutes or until the bread is frozen. Remove the bread from the tray and store in a freezer safe plastic bag. When you want to use the bread for dinner, just remove the desired number of slices and place on a baking tray. Let the bread sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes. Broil until the bread is lightly browned.

Combine the seasonings with the softened butter...

I like to store the butter in these mason jars...

You can even get a bunch of mason jars and make the butter 
for family and friends...

Spread the butter on top of thick sliced bread, I like French bread...

Place the tray in the freezer until the bread slices are frozen...

Place the frozen slices of bread in a freezer-safe plastic bag...

This really is an easy recipe that your family will love and you will 
save a lot of money by not purchasing the pre-made version from the 
grocery store.  You can even use this butter for vegetables!
My family loves it on steamed broccoli.
