Super Sumptuous Veggie Delight On Garlic Bread

A touch of elegance in a plate of flavorful veggies.

Appetizers for me are as important as the main dish or entrée. It really does get the appetite of the people you serve up and running. So a great appetizer can really make a difference especially during special occasions or events. And it is always a plus to have an appetizer that looks amazingly delectable.

But there are time that appetizers kinda make the person eating not that hungry anymore. So it does somewhat help if your main dish or entrée isn’t that much, especially if the appetizer is very addicting.

My hubby and kids are a little weird when it comes to appetizers and they usually have it together with the main dish. Now this recipe here is one appetizer that we don’t only serve before a meal but also have if we want something like it during a lazy afternoon.

You will definitely want to have this as part of your menu.

Check out the recipe below.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

Slice the bread into 12 (1-inch thick) slices. Distribute garlic powder and butter evenly over the top of each slice. Place the slices directly onto the oven rack (do not use a cookie sheet, the bread will get crisper this way). Let the bread heat for 3 to 5 minutes.

Remove the bread from the oven and arrange them on a serving platter. Spread the vegetable mixture over the 12 bread slices, distribute the topping as evenly as you can. Serve immediately.
