Garlic Bread in a Pinch

We were having spaghetti for dinner tonight, but I did not have any garlic bread.  Instead of running to the store to buy some, I remembered we had something in the pantry that would do. 

I had a few hotdog buns leftover from the last time we had hotdogs.  They are the perfect size for mini loaves of garlic bread. 

Open up the buns and place on a cookie sheet

Spread a coating of butter or margerine over the buns.  I then added some garlic salt, parm cheese and a tiny bit of italian seasoning. 

I baked in a 450 degree oven for about 5-7 minutes. Keep a close eye on it though, because they can burn easily.    Everyone loved it and asked for seconds.  


  1. Great idea! I love using what is on hand instead of going out to buy more!

  2. I've done this before but had forgotten about it! Doesn't it work well in a pinch? If you're the type to put the spaghetti on your bread, you really can't notice much of a difference!

  3. Oh my gosh, we used to do this all the time when we were kids! I think we liked it more than the toaster. Thanks for helping me remember a great memory. Yum!

  7. My aunt would just use sandwich bread when she ran out...I like this idea too. I guess it doesn't matter what bread it is as long as it had garlic and butter : )

  8. this is how we make it at church for the kids still taste great and have never heard a complaint

  9. I love that i'm not the only one that's done this!!! HEY, it works!

  10. I do this with bread almost all the time but I like the idea of the hot dog buns better! Thanks!
