This is are really quick alternative to shop bought garlic bread which is costly and full of preservatives. You can use fresh bread, pitta bread or packaged sliced bread - whatever you have at home. Children love to mix the ingredients together and spread on the bread and it is a perfect accompaniment to pasta, pizza or just as a snack. Garlic is also so good for you too! For the older taste buds a little salt and pepper can also be added.

1 clove garlic (add more if you like it really garlicy)
Leaves from 1 thyme stalk
Wholemeal sliced bread

  2. Using a knife, spread the butter onto the sliced bread
  3. Place the bread under a medium grill until golden brown
