  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted

Place flat side of knife blade on top of garlic, with sharp side of blade away from you; press down firmly while pulling knife toward you. Repeat until a paste forms.

  2. Combine garlic paste, butter, and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl. Brush butter mixture on cut sides of bread; sandwich together. Place on a baking sheet, and bake until heated through and crispy, about 12 minutes. Slice and serve.

    I always did it in tin foil. So happy to know I don't have to! Thank you

    This was great! Making the garlic paste was bit difficult though.
