Cheesy Garlic Bread

     I titled my blog "Penny Pinching Provisions" because I wanted to focus on making good food on a budget. I have succeeded with that for the most part, although I feel like my blog is a little more focused on the food than the budget. I'm ok with that...and if I could think of a better name for the blog, I might even change it.
    For today, I really do have a "penny pinching" tip for you. I can't stand to throw things out, and a lot of times if I know I won't use all of something; I use a replacement that I will use. A couple of weeks ago, I bought hamburger buns for our sloppy joes. I usually just use toasted bread, but we were having company over...then we all got sick and ended up eating them on our own. So I had leftover buns which turned into this delicious, cheesy garlic bread. And, if you are wondering about the chili in the's basically this chili recipe with some leftover spaghetti (marinara sauce and all) mixed in. This was truly a penny-pinching meal that turned into something delicious!

bread (french bread if making it for other people)
garlic salt
optional toppings: basil, Italian seasoning, oregano, paprika, chili powder, red pepper...

  • Spread butter on each piece of bread.
  • Sprinkle with garlic salt.
  • Top with your favorite cheese. Provolone or mozzarella is good. 
  • Broil until toasty. Watch it, broiling is very fast!
