I have missed garlic bread since I found out I was dairy intolerant, so my husband came up with this great dairy free version, which is much healthier than the garlic bread you can find frozen in the store, slathered with butter.

Homemade Garlic Bread

1 loaf bread (dairy free)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbsp. garlic
dash of onion powder
1/4 tsp. salt
dash of pepper
1/2 tsp. dried oregano

Mix all ingredients (except bread) in a bowl and blend well.  Spread across the bread.

Broil in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes until it is golden.

I have tried this two different ways.  First, we used Jimmy John’s day old bread, which produced a crispy version.  Most recently I used The Frugal Girl’s French bread recipe (with 1/2 c. whole wheat flour).  This version produced a softer garlic bread.  Both were good.

Enjoy!
