I’m a garlic lover. I love garlic bread especially but often find it too heavy and it fills me so much that I struggle to eat my meal. Over the last few weeks I’ve been on a frugal kick and I’ve been using up all the odds and ends in my cupboards – like those last few tortilla wraps leftover from Fajita night. Introducing cheats garlic bread…
So I needed garlic bread, didn’t have time to make bread from scratch and no French stick or ciabatta at home so I used some leftover wraps – now this is no great invention. In fact it’s so simple that its barely a recipe but we have had it several times now and we love them.
Cheats Garlic Bread
You will need:
Garlic paste or diced garlic cloves
I’ve left out quantities as it depends on how many wraps you have etc etc but you roughly need 1 part garlic to 3 parts butter and the parsley is more to make it look prettier than for flavour so as much or as little as you like.
Preheat your oven to gas mark 5.
Chop up your tortillas as you would a pizza and lay on a wire rack or baking tray. Melt your butter and garlic together by blasting in microwave for about 20secs. Add in your parsley and stir. Using a pastry brush give each slice a good coating of the garlicky butter and place in the oven for about 10 minutes until golden brown – keep a close eye as there is a fine line between golden and burnt!
Serve immediately for ultimate butteriness but they are also good cooler when they crisp up a little more.
They are salty, butter, garlicky and crisp. Perfectly light and a delicious accompaniment to lots of meals. A little addictive too some may say.
