Bestest Easiest Garlic Bread Ever

Forgot to stop by bakery for 2 loaves of Italian bread for a lasagne dinner party, but had purchased a package of large croissants that day at the local Costco. Running low on time I just used the 16 huge croissants. Instead of trying to slice those soft croissants and then spread the usual softened butter garlic mix on them, I just piled them up on a cookie sheet, and drizzled a melted, liquid version of the butter/garlic mixture over all. Got more compliments on this danged concoction, than any bread I've ever served before!

Serves:

10-16

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

20 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

1/2 c
olive oil
1 stick
butter
1 pkg
lipton onion soup mix
2-3 Tbsp
minced fresh garlic
2
loaves of italian bread, sliced (or croisants, challah, sourdough, or any other firm bread)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine olive oil, butter, and garlic in a small sauce pan. Heat over low heat for about 10 minutes to melt butter and oil together and infuse with garlic. Keep heat low so butter and garlic don't burn.
2
Add Lipton onion soup mix to oil/butter mixture and stir until well blended and all lumps are gone. Remove pan from heat.
3
Line a rimmed large cookie sheet with foil. Place a layer of bread on the sheet. (You can leave croissants whole.) Brush or drizzle oil/butter mixture over bread.
4
Add another layer of bread, overlapping slices, but not stacking them. Brush or drizzle more oil/butter mixture over second layer until all gone.
5
Cover bread with foil and crimp edges to seal. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes.
6
All steps except baking can be done up to several days in advance, or can be frozen for up to a month. This recipe is very flexible, so adjust garlic, etc. to taste, and be as generous or skimpy as you wish with the oil/butter mixture over the bread. Also, you can leave out the butter and use an additional 1/2 cup of oil for a more heart-healthy version.
