Garlic Toasted Triangles
Balsamic vinegar gives a sharp kick to this garlic butter spread. Bread cooks quickly in the broiler—start checking the garlic toast after about 30 seconds to make sure it doesn’t burn.
Serves: 12Hands-on: 10 minutesTotal: 10 minutesDifficulty: Easy
- 12 slices (1”) crusty French bread
- ¾ cup butter, softened
- ¾ tsp. garlic powder
- ⅛ tsp. salt
- ⅛ tsp. ground black pepper
- ½ tsp. dried basil leaves
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
- Preheat the broiler on high heat. Spray a broiling rack with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a small bowl, beat together the softened butter, garlic powder, salt, pepper, basil, lemon juice, and balsamic vinegar.
- Spread the garlic butter over one side of the bread slices (about 1½ tablespoons per bread slice). Store any leftover garlic butter in a sealed container in the refrigerator to use on bread or toast as desired.
- Lay the bread slices out on the rack, butter side up. Broil the toast about 1 minute, watching caerefully, until the butter has melted and the bread is toasted. Cut each bread slice diagonally into quarters.
