The kids and I love garlic bread in basically any form. Sometimes we buy the store-made garlic bread and give each slice a few seconds in the microwave. Sometimes we brush a leftover hot dog bun with butter and garlic salt and broil it for a couple minutes. And sometimes, we make these garlic twists.
I have yet to convince my husband about the wonders of garlic. It’s a family thing… his entire family is garlic averse. They never eat garlic bread and don’t even use garlic in the lasagna.
But me? I’ll put garlic on just about anything. I remember this one time when my son was a newborn and I was nursing, we went to a pizza place that was new to us, and I ordered a pizza that was basically just garlic cloves and caramelized onions. I thoroughly enjoyed it. About halfway through the meal, it occurred to me that my nursing child might not appreciate that too much.
He didn’t, by the way. He cried every time he nursed for the next two days, and the garlic was so strong I could smell it on him for days.
Oh… but that was a good pizza! And it didn’t stop him from growing up to love garlic bread, so nothing lost.
I should tell you upfront that I have never been one to make homemade bread. It’s so time consuming… and kneading for 10 minutes straight? I don’t think so. Laziness reigns here.
