Our family eats a lot of soup, and many different kinds of soup. We like to have garlic crisps ("fancy a crisp?") with our soup, and these cost $2.99 a dozen. Today we made some at home. The French bread was $.59 at a large grocery chain's day old rack. We used 1/3 lb. of butter at $2.09 the pound. The project took 40 minutes and made 5 dozen garlic breads.
When Spark saw Dancer slicing the bread he said "Why is she cutting the bread with a chain saw?"
Slicing the bread, using an electric carving knife allows for thinner slices.
Put in oven on "low broil" to brown one side, flip over, butter and brown the second side. These crisps will keep a long time in the cupboard or indefinitely in the freezer.
Store brand garlic crisps $2.99/12, or $.25 each. Home made crsips $1.88/60, or $.03 each.
