Okay, these is not a ‘normal’ garlic bread BUT it does have the makings of garlic bread sans butter but trust me, you will not miss it.  I said trust me!

But first, a little something to make you turn the no-butter frown up-side down:

Now that you are smiling, I can go on with the story and recipe. I have a dear friend, Dawn coming to visit. She was a bridesmaid in our wedding 10.5 years ago. Oh, I have missed seeing her glowy face.

Yes, she knows I am not supposed to talk but she does not mind, I will be an even better listener.

She eats a gluten-free diet so while I was shopping yesterday, I was on my way to grab some gluten free bread to make bread crumbs when I spotted gluten free bread crumbs. Sweet, I thought, once less step for me. This morning, I headed into the kitchen to experiment making some gluten free recipes and I scored big time! While the chicken tenders were crisping in the oven, I concocted this recipe – people, it pretty much tastes like garlic bread with a slice of tomatoes.

Run to the kitchen and make it!

What is wrong? Are you still pouting? Ohhhhh, you want more cheese. No Problem!

Aw, now what? Oh, you think I need to serve my friend Dawn some milk with this? Okay.

By the way, if you are all into winning $350 or taking a trip to Cali., or a cooking class or Udi’s coupons, be sure to enter the Udi’s ‘Look Again, It’s Gluten Free’ Contest.

schmering garlic all over….

Getting ready to get warm and melty….

I love me some {homegrown} tomatoes and garlic. Bet these are super yummy. Can’t wait to try it out. Especially because I know the Parmesan cheese will form a slight crunchy crust… nom nom

These are right up my alley. I nearly lived on roasted tomatoes covered in cheese last summer. PS – I have one of those white plates, love the design on them!

Love this idea! I just saw this on Pinterest, and had one of those “why didn’t I think of that?” moments :-) Plus, two bonuses-it’s gluten-free for me, and I even think my kids will love it! Have a great day!

I am making these right now! This is perfect- I’ve been gluten free since January!

I made these today – very good! I didn’t have any fresh parsley so I used a mixed Italian Herb seasoning.

P.S. I notice you cooked 4, but only 3 made it to the plate. :^)
