My Signature Texas Toast Garlic Bread- Warm, buttery and delicious thick cut garlic bread with a secret ingredient toasted to golden perfection. Serve hot with pastas, as a side dish, and more.
Texas toast is traditionally a very thick cut bread buttered, seasoned and toasted until golden.
In this recipe, I seasoned a thick cut french loaf with butter, dried basil, garlic powder and paprika. It gives the bread a delicious combination of traditional garlic bread flavors with light spice from the paprika.
