what's cooking wednesday - garlic butter

This week's recipe is an easy one to throw together. Even better if you make a bunch you'll always have some ready in your fridge. It's good for many applications.

Garlic Toast

Garlic Butter

1 cup butter, softened
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
fresh ground pepper, to taste

Take all ingredients and mix well in a small bowl or make it even easier and toss it all in your food processor.

Recipe Notes: I made this not long ago to use for garlic bread. I enjoyed it much more than the garlic spreads you can buy in the store. Oh and those measurements are rough estimates. I just threw everything in the bowl and mixed it up. I made extra tonight to have some on hand. Abby loves her grilled cheese made with garlic butter. She's also not above throwing a piece of bread in the toaster and have garlic toast.

What is What's Cooking Wednesday and how can I play?

What's cooking Wednesday was born out of a desire to get out of that what's for dinner rut. Playing is easy, on Wednesday post a recipe that has been tried and tested by you and then pop over here and add your name to the Mr. Linky. When entering your name also add the name of the recipe in brackets and make sure you link to your What's Cooking Wednesday post and not just your blog's front page. *All front page links will be deleted!* Don't make me be a jerk. And don't forget to link back here, the home of What's Cooking Wednesday.

So for example I would write Shan (Speedy Chicken Stir Fry) in the name section. For the URL section I would post this: http://shanrev.blogspot.com/2007/10/whats-cooking-wednesday-speedy-chicken.html

I'll let you in on a little secret, my WCW recipes are almost never made on a Wednesday. So feel free to cook and photograph whenever you have time and join us posting on Wednesday

I do love garlic bread but I never make it. Have you tried it with roasted garlic? Also awesome.

mmmm!! Try grating some summer squash or zucchini and mixing with this and frying it up like potato cakes - I did that a few weeks ago it was soooo good!
