Roasted Garlic Butter - An Affair from the Heart

Summer cookouts are complete when whatever tasty grilled main dish accompanies garlic bread.  My favorite summer dinners are simply a perfectly grilled steak or chicken breast, a nice salad, a baked potato and a crusty loaf of toasted garlic bread.

I dreamt up a burger recently deemed the  “Italian Burger.” It is made on a garlic bread bun! Holy buckets, people it was so good!

Sure, I could have made garlic bread with regular ol garlic powder – but I wanted that fresh roasted garlic flavor.  I decided it was time to christen my new garlic baker.  I had always roasted garlic in foil … I am so tickled I don’t have to do that anymore.  This thing rocks!

  2. Can’t get much better than roasted garlic because that mellow nutty flavor just pairs so well with just about anything! So many uses for this I don’t know where to start!

  3. Holy Buckets is right! I can’t think of anything that makes grilled food better than a combination of butter and garlic. The possibilities for this simple but flavorful enhancement are endless! Thanks for the great idea!!1

  4. I laugh at your comment about storing the leftovers in the fridge… lol.. you think there will be leftovers? Not at our garlic loving house! We’ll use a whole batch on steak and corn for dinner!!
