I had my mother and father in-law over Sunday for dinner. Justin suggested making Manicotti, so I went to the store for all the ingredients. I was out of fennel, so I wandered over to my beloved spice aisle and tried to avoid buying anything other than the (ridiculously expensive!) fennel seeds.
Unfortunately, I made eye contact with this:
Did you guys know about this? Am I way late to the party? I'm pretty sure I've never seen garlic bread sprinkle before and I am a very frequent visitor to the spice isle.
Anyway, long story short, I bought it. I usually make my own garlic bread by slicing a loaf of Italian bread, buttering it up, and loading it with minced garlic, onion powder, parsley, parmesan, and mozzarella cheese. With this neat little creation I still sliced a loaf, buttered, and topped it with mozzarella for some cheesy goodness and I think this way might be better. n fact, I made it for my in-law's dinner and my mother-in-law all but fought my husband for the leftovers.
I'd call that a successful product. What culinary shortcuts have you discovered lately?
