We love Garlic Bread but sometimes the garlic is too raw and over-powering and it doesn’t love us back. With these toasts we roasted the garlic before making the butter to spread on the toasts. The result is delicious and full-flavoured without leaving you with that overt garlic aroma and breath (unless you eat loads of it).
The Garlic butter can also be made in advance with the toasts or bread baked at the end which is helpful when entertaining.
