Expert Tips

  • Not fond of garlic? Drop it, and add herbs, onion or seeds instead. For herb bread, mix 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley, 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves, 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese and 1/8 teaspoon garlic salt with the butter. For onion bread, mix 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion or chives with the butter. For seeded bread, mix 1 teaspoon celery seed, poppy seed, dill seed or sesame seed with the butter.
  • Heat the bread in your microwave. Do not wrap loaf in foil. Instead, divide the loaf in half, and place halves side by side in napkin-lined microwavable basket or on microwavable dinner plate. Cover with napkin and microwave on Medium (50%) 1 minute 30 seconds to 3 minutes, rotating basket 1/2 turn after 1 minute, until bread is hot.
