The convenience of garlic toast is that you can make smaller amounts, and may not need a whole or half loaf of bread if you’re just serving one or two people. It’s fair to state that it’s pretty hard not to eat at least a couple of slices in one sitting.
There are many ways of making the garlic toast. If you want a simplified version, you can just use a little butterwhipped, mixed with some garlic powderor pureed garlic and spread it on a piece of toast. Additionally there are also pre made garlic spreads available for this purpose.
In the more traditional manner, garlictoast is made in the broiler. Garlic butteris a simple thing to make, especially if you have a food processor, since it eliminates the need to chop up the garlic. You must be attentive when broiling the toast, since the high heat can easily burn it to a crisp.
Often you need just about a minute to brown each side. Garlictoast is similar to the Texas toast which is a type of packaged bread which is pre-slice at double the typical thickness of a pre sliced bread usually used for sandwiches. Popular in Texas and surrounding states, Texas toast is generally served toasted as a side with chicken fried steak, fried catfish or BBQ. The actual toast itself is made by buttering both sides of the breadand broiling it until lightly golden brown.
Depending on the recipe, the butter may have seasonings such as garlic. The toast may have cheese on one or both sides. Texas toast may have been first created in 1941 at the Pig Stand in Beaumont, Texas, after a bakery order for thicker slices of bread resulted in slices too thick for the toaster and a cook who suggested buttering and grilling them as a remedy.
If you still like you to prepare a healthier version of garlic toast, you can make a variant of bruschetta, using thick bread instead of thinly sliced pieces of baguette. Instead of using butter, brush both sides of the bread lightly with oliveoil. Once you’ve removed the bread from the broiler or toaster oven, use a clove of garlic and rub it onto each piece of toast.
Don’t neglect the crust of the bread because you’ll produce even more garlicky flavor if you rub the garlic onto the crust. You can also garlic juice in spray form instead of a garlicclove.
Of course, nothing really compares with the rich and buttery taste of true garlic toast. Alternative recipes with lower fat content can be a decent substitute, but won’t quite have the same wonderfully luxurious taste. To prepare garlic butter firstly take few fresh pods of garlic and make to a paste in the ding chik and them combine it along with butter and cheese in a mixing bowl.
Mix until well incorporated. Preheat a griddle or a large non-stick pan. Spread garlic butter generously on one side of bread slices. Place bread slices buttered side down on griddle and cook until golden brown or grill it for 5 mins until golden brown color. Garlic toast is one of the popular dishes served at 5 star hotels, Subway, KFCetc. Do try this out at home and enjoy the fresh taste of the bread and garlic.

Garlic has been used throughout history for both culinary and medicinal purposes. Garlic is widely used around the world for its pungent flavor as a seasoning or condiment. It is a fundamental component in many or most dishes of various regions, including eastern Asia, southAsia, SoutheastAsia, the Middle East, northernAfrice, southernEurope and parts of South and CentralAmerica.
The flavour varies in intensity and aroma with the different cooking methods. It is often paired with onion, tomato or ginger. Garlic may be applied to breads to create a variety of classic dishes such as garlic bread, garlic toast, bruschetta, crostini and canape. Garlic is part of the "lily" family and is closely related to shallots, garlic-chives, and leeks.
The bulb is made of a series of bulblets called cloves. Garlic has been cultivated since ancient times. It was said that Egyptian masters fed garlic to the slaves to increase the worker's physical power. In modern times it is used as a popular flavoring in cooking. It can be eaten raw or cooked.
The pungent flavor of garlic is caused by a chemical reaction that occurs when the garlic cells are broken. The flavor is most intense shortly after cutting or chopping. This chemical reaction cannot occur after garlic is cooked, which is why roasted garlic is sweet rather than pungent. Garlic's medicinal uses include digestive stimulant, diuretic, and antispasmodic.
Additionally, many studies have been done to show the value of garlic when used to prevent certain forms of cancer as well as beneficial to heart health. Research has shown that, like olive oil, garlic may help prevent heart disease. Many people eat garlic or take garlic supplements on the advice of their doctor in an effort to improve their cholesterol numbers and help control high blood pressure. Garlic has been found to have antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal activity.
Garlic is also claimed to help prevent heart disease (including atherosclerosis, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure) and cancer. In fact, countries where garlic is consumed in higher amounts, due to traditional cuisine, have been found to have a lower prevalence of cancer
