As I made one of our favorite in-a-pinch side dishes the other day, I thought “surely I can’t be the only one that does this.” So I asked my husband if I should post about it. He said sure, but he also said that he thought everyone does this.

I couldn’t wait to post and find out! Do you make Poor Man’s Garlic Bread?

If you don’t, you might be wondering what it is. It’s quite simple really – hot dog or hamburger buns toasted in the oven with some butter and garlic powder, salt and Italian seasoning sprinkled on top.

I frequently find packages of either kind of buns (both white and whole wheat) marked down on manager’s special to 50¢ or less. When I see those, I snag a few and throw them in my freezer for just this reason. So cheap and so easy. Unless I’m making real garlic bread, our kids prefer this option to frozen loaves of garlic bread. I’m not going to complain!

I can’t wait to hear if you’ve ever made this too!
