I grew up in a household in which bread was always served at dinner time. Biscuits, croissants, buttered toast, garlic bread, corn bread-each addition tied the meal together depending on what we were having that night. It may sound like a weak excuse but this is what I blame my current bread addiction on! I love bread just as it is, I really really do. But I love it even more smothered in garlic butter and stuffed with melted cheese. I have yet to meet another human being who doesn’t share the same feeling. Bread lovers rejoice. This recipe may change your life, for the better.
While I appreciate the convenience of tossing a loaf of frozen garlic bread into the oven and taking it out 20 minutes later to serve, homemade is the way to my heart. I remember the first time I attempted to make my own garlic bread. I took a hot dog bun, slathered both sides with butter, sprinkled on garlic powder and tossed it in the oven to bake. It was pretty good for what it was but I am happy to say my skills have improved. Today those hot dog buns would be no match for my Cheese Stuffed Garlic Crescent Puffs! These things are delicious.
Making bread from scratch can be a lot of work especially if you are preparing a meal to go along with it.
