Low Cal Garlic Bread Spread

Submitted by: LEXIEMOM

Introduction

My twist on a favorite, taking Garlic Bread to the "Light Side" just keeping the flavor intense!
I use this amount to thinly cover 5 slices of bread for only 15 calories added to each slice.

Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    2 TBSP Fat Free Greek Style Yogurt (any style will do, I like greek for the flavor kick)

    2TBSP Garlic (I use minced garlic from jar for ease and speed!)

    2 TBSP grated or shredded Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese (or be wild & mix 'em!)

    1/4 tsp to 1 tsp dried spice "Italian" mix (or Greek mix or Herbs de Provance ) If you don't have that on hand you can mix Thyme, Oregano, Rosemary and Savory. Amount depends on your taste

    Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions

1) Mix ingredients in a small bowl. Add a drop or two of water if it seems to thick to spread. (Your choice of Yogurt will affect this the most)


2) Spread on your bread slice as much or little as you like. This amount will thinly cover about 5 sandwich size slices (3.75" x 3.75").


3) Put on cookie sheet and under broiler for 3-5 minutes. WATCH CAREFULLY! You don't want your delicious garlic bread to go up in smoke.



NOTE:
For crunchier bread, you can pre-Toast the bread on a light setting, add spread and just brown the top under the broiler.


To kick it up a notch or two try it with a few dashes of one of these:
Tobasco or a hot sauce
Smoky Paprika
Worchestershire Sauce


I just make small batches at a time, so I'm not tempted to scarf too many garlic bread slices!
If you want to make just multiply ingredients, go less on the spice though, put in fridge in airtight container.

  • Used low cal margarine spread instead of yogurt (didn't have any). I thought 2TBSP of garlic is a bit much, so I cut it in 1/2 & might do less next time. It was a perfect amount of spread for my hubby & I. I used leftover frozen hamburger buns for bread and it was perfect. This recipe is a keeper. - 12/12/10
