Homemade Garlic Butter Spread
My son and me love to each garlic bread! The more spread it has the better it is. Yeah, we both love to eat garlic. :P So, don't talk to us after dinner. XD I used to buy McCormick's Garlic spread with bacon bits but I was not able to find it since more than a year ago. Since then, I started making my more garlic spread. It's really very easy. The hardest could be getting the garlic into paste-like. If you using the knife, it's going to take you awhile for the garlic to be paste-like but it will work. It just takes longer. I do it with the help of a little tool, the grater. You can of course use normal the big one if you already have one at home. Mine is a tiny one which is smaller than my palm. Oh, you can use this method to grate ginger to get the ginger juice. At least this is how I did it.
For my garlic spread, I mixed 4 glove of grated garlic to 1 tablespoon of softened butter. If you have garlic powder and/or parsley flakes, add 1 teaspoon each to the butter for extra flavours. Otherwise, garlic and butter is fine. You can make more and keep in the fridge. So you can have garlic spread anytime you want. Just spread on to any bread and toast it till slightly brown. Yummy!
