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. That's right, you now the frozen garlic bread you can buy in the grocery store that's pretty expensive? You can now make it at home and save so much money!

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've made it for a few family dinners and everyone loved. In fact, I made it for Christmas gifts to give to friends and I always make sure I have a jar ready to give to my brother when he comes to visit.
Let's make the Garlic Butter!
Combine the seasonings with the softened butter.
Here's a closeup of the garlic butter. It is so delicious.
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. I made garlic butter as gifts for Christmas this year. My hairdresser loved it!
Now, let's talk Freezing!
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.

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.
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. Check out this post on steamed broccoli.
