Microwave Garlic Bread

  • ¼ cup (1/2 stick) margarine
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 loaf (6-inch) French bread, cut 2/3 of the way through at 1-inch intervals

Place the margarine, garlic, salt, and pepper in a 1-cup glass measuring cup. Cook in the microwave, uncovered, for 45-60 seconds at Power Level 1 or until the margarine is softened but not melted; beat to blend.

Spread the margarine mixture between the slices of bread. Wrap the loaf loosely in waxed paper for a soft loaf or place unwrapped on a paper towel for a crisper loaf. Cook in the microwave for 30-45 seconds at the highest power level or until hot.

  • Yields: 1 loaf
  • Preparation Time: 5 minutes
