Garlic Toast!

Recommended Posts

So here's what I did. I cheated. I bought a baguette from the gluten-free brand Against the Grain, which I've had once before and scored a 6 out of 10. So I figured I'd try treating it like French bread and sliced it lengthwise into a few pieces, then used the recipe from Allrecipes for roasted garlic bread. Basically, you just roast a head of garlic and mix it with melted butter and whatever seasonings you like, parsley or parmesan or salt. To roast the garlic I took scissors and nipped the tips off each clove and drizzled with a bit of olive oil, roast for a half hour or so at 350. Then I spread the mix over the pieces of bread, toasted (not broiled like with gluten bread) in a pan, and voila! My first real garlic toast in three years!!!!!! This time the baguette scored a 10 out of 10, not sure what I did wrong last time, but it was soft in the middle and crispy-chewy on the outside. This bread behaves better cut lengthwise because it's full of holes. Slices don't work out too well.

Just thought I'd share my success, garlic toast was like the Holy Grail of gluten freeness to me, so I'm going to be in a very good mood for quite some time to come....

And I have another baguette in the freezer.... Yippee!!!! Just need more garlic...

Congrats! In a pinch, I've resorted to toasting half a gluten-free bagel (I actually like the enjoy life ones, or kinnikinnick or glutino) with some margarine and garlic! It was pretty good, but your recipe sounds better :lol:


Gluten Free since 10/07

Mildly Lactose Intolerant, slight intestinal symptoms after eating milk products, but easily corrected with lactase enzyme

Endometriosis- DX'd 5/07

Gluten Antibodies- "negative"...don't know exact numbers, am highly suspicious...

DXed celiac 12-19-07 via genetics/elimination diet- DQ2 allele

Brother with Celiac, aspergers...his tests were all negative (he didn't have genetics done), including endoscopy, but he definitely is at the least gluten intolerant...highly suspect my mother has it as well- she has hyperthyroid, fibromyalgia, hemochromatosis, and now colon cancer, and she has been weak and exhausted and just generally sick. She's going to get tested.

I have tried it with the Kinnikinnick cheese tapioca rice bread and softened some butter in the microwave and mixed garlic with it and toasted it with some parmesan. It's pretty good too.

I think it might have been so good partly because of the crispy effect the baguette had. I highly recommend the Against the Grain brand. They make bagels, but they taste just like the baguettes. I'll be trying it again soon with the best gluten-free white bread I've ever had, Aleia's. There's a restaurant in Old Saybrook Ct (I live in CT) called Aleia's, which started making gluten free stuff, like bread and pizza and cookies. Their stuff got real popular and now I can get it at health food stores around the state, fresh, even. The bread is incredible. Little too sweet is my only complaint, but I'm more sensitive to sweet flavors than most. I actually got to soften some butter and have a piece of buttered bread WITHOUT TOASTING IT FIRST. That was a milestone. Also makes very good toaster oven pizza, you know, like Ellio's?

Yeah, and there's always olive oil for the dairy impaired!

Oh, you live in Ct? That's neat. Yeah, they make really awesome food, I've only been there once so far. I got the gluten-free pizza. I really liked it, but they use too much sauce, and I prefer a thick crust pizza. Next time I'm getting the gluten-free fried fish. I know. Fried fish. They bring you their bread toasted for your bread before the meal, and they brought me a couple cookies at the end of the meal. The cookies are good, they're the crispy kind. The service is fabulous. I actually learned yesterday that the restaurant is only open three days a week because they've been so busy during the week baking all the gluten-free stuff to send out! The lady was all apologetic and I'm like, No! It's ok! I have a five minute drive to my local health food store where I can get your bread fresh, I'm not complaining, I'll wait til thursday!

There's also a movie theater and some nice shopping about five minutes away from the restaurant, so it's easy to make a day trip of it. They're open for dinner only Thurs Fri Sat.

That sounds soooo good!!! The closest I game to garlic bread (without trying lol) is spreading some garlic that was crushed in a food processor and fried in butter and spreading that over a piece of Kinnikinnick's white bread (that's the only gluten-free bread I eat). It was quite good, could taste more garlic than anything...though I think next time if I do that, I'll throw it in the toaster oven (oh wait, I just remembered ours as home doesnt work!!). Someday hehe. And as us Ukrainians say, you can never have too much garlic :lol:

I've used the Kinnikinnick hot dog buns, spread on soft butter and garlic salt and pop under the broiler... yum! Closest thing to my much-missed Coles garlid bread.

Oh, that's a good idea, I thought those buns were too thick and heavy for hot dogs, but they'd make great garlic toast.
