Old Buns Made New Again!

For years I purchased the prepackaged and frozen garlic bread on a regular basis.  They were convenient for adding a quick side to almost any meal.  

I don't buy them anymore though! Instead I take the hot dog and hamburger buns that always seem to be left in the bag just after they pass their freshness date and freeze them preseasoned to make my own frozen garlic bread.  

Easy and very cost effective!

Old buns of any kind 
(even if they have begun to get a little hard...this technique softens them right up when it's time to serve them)
Olive Oil
Garlic Powder
Grated Parmesan
Basil and Garlic Seasoning Blend is nice on these too!


  1. Open the buns and lay them out on a flat surface.
  2. Coat the insides with a moderate amount of olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle with a generous portion of garlic powder and grated parmesan.
  4. Fold the tops and bottoms of the buns back together and slide them into a gallon sized freezer bag. Freeze until ready to use.
  5. When ready to serve, remove the portion of seasoned buns from the bag.  Open them up and place them on a baking sheet with the seasoned sides facing up.  Place under a broiler and cook until lightly toasted.
