Mmm! Texas Toast! I love Texas Toast. It’s thick and chewy and with the garlic bread topping it takes it to beyond delicious! I love to have this along with Lasagna or pasta. I’m sure you’ve seen the boxes of garlic Texas Toast sold in the freezer section. I never buy it but my mom had it for us for dinner a while ago. It was really good but way too buttery and I couldn’t believe all the strange ingredients when I read the labels. So I decided I would make my own!
I couldn’t find a recipe I liked so I did my own thing. I bought a loaf of Texas Toast and topped it with a mixture of butter, minced garlic, parsley and salt and pepper. It was so quick to put together. And the topping is delicious.
Then you put them inside a labeled freezer zip-lock bag. It’s that easy! We are loving having this ready to go whenever we want it. I’ve warmed it up in the oven, toaster oven and on the stove-top and all ways are delicious! I’m loving this!

2 tsp. dried parsley
4-5 cloves of garlic, minced (or 1 Tbsp. garlic powder)
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. ground pepper
1 loaf of Texas Toast (16-17 pieces)
In a small mixing bowl, mix together the softened butter, parsley, minced garlic, salt & pepper until smooth. (Optional: Add 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese.) Lightly spread the butter mixture on one side of all the bread.

(If you don’t freeze the bread cut 1-2 minutes off of cooking time.)
