One of the things we love to do is make our own garlic bread and freeze it. I never thought about posting how to freeze garlic bread until my friend was shocked that I did it. Her response… “I never thought about that”. So my post is here!
If you buy garlic bread or cheesy bread at the store, it is really expensive! I mean if you think about it you are pay $2-$4 a box for frozen bread with some butter, garlic, and cheese on it. That is it!
Instead of paying that… make your own and stock up!
- Slice your bread and place them on a cookie sheet.
- Add butter, garlic salt and mozzerella cheese on each piece.
- Bake it at 400 degrees for about 3 minutes until the cheese begins to melt.
- Once it is cooked, you will allow it to cool completely.
- Once cooled you will place in a freezer bag and freeze. It is that easy!
How Freezing Garlic Bread saves you money
Now making your own garlic bread is going to save you a ton of money, but if you want to save an amazing amount of money then look for the discounted “old” bread. At our local grocery store, there is always a rack or a grocery cart filled with discounted bread from their bakery. I can get a loaf of french bread for only $.75 instead of $2-$3. They mark it down because the “fresh” date is just a day or two away. However, the bread is still great.
Since we are making in bulk and freezing it, we don’t care how “fresh” it is. You can also check your local bread “thrift stores” too to save on the bread. You can also think outside the box, we have made garlic bread out of leftover hotdog buns and leftover hamburger buns.
So next time you want some garlic bread make a big batch and freeze some too. 🙂
