Sainsbury's Garlic Bread Slices
Description: Manufacturer: Sainsburys / Type: Bread.
I really love garlic bread and find it to be the perfect accompaniment to loads of meals or a tasty snack on its own. Ideally, I would make my own garlic bread with butter, fresh garlic and a decent loaf - I like to use a loaf of tiger bread instead of french bread because it gives you huge slices and you also get the delicious tiger bread taste mingled with the garlic. Having said that, I work shifts so there are plenty of times when I am in a hurry or don't have the ingredients, so it is handy to keep some ready prepared ones in the freezer.
A bag containing ten slices of this garlic bread will cost around £1.15 but can sometimes be found on special offer. We picked some up for just £1 so it is worth keeping your eyes open.
Unlike traditional garlic breads, these are slices rather than a french bread loaf, and they can be cooked under a grill or in the oven. My sister pops them in the toaster and they are delicious made that way too!
Once prepared, these breads smell delicious and quickly fill the kitchen with that distinctive garlic bread aroma. The slices are slightly crispy on the outside and soft and buttery inside. There is a good ratio of garlic butter to bread and the garlic taste is quite strong. The slices are a little less crispy than the traditional baked french breads so a good option for children or people who prefer a softer bread.
Overall. these slices are a quick and convenient way to prepare tasty garlic bread in minutes. They are not as good as home made but if you are in a hurry, they are well worth trying!
Nutritional information (per slice is as follows);
These garlic bread slices have been in the freezer for ages and I got a bit sick of seeing them so when I cooked a pizza for my little sister and her mates I also did these up for them. I was starving by the time the pizza and garlic bread were done so I ended up sharing with them and this garlic bread is yummy..... I should have tried it AGES ago!
You get 10 slices of garlic bread in a plastic tray with a bag sealing them, I cooked mine in the oven because it was on anyway but you can also grill the slices. I prefer the slices to baguettes because I hate getting my fingers all greasy when I slice the baguettes up so it's good to have these already sliced.
They don't smell that garlicky when they're cooking so I was quite surprised by how strong the taste of the garlic is when I eat one. The garlic butter is spread quite thick onto each slice but that doesn't make it majorly greasy, I know that sounds weird but you know sometimes you get garlic bread that is soooooo greasy you can hardly taste the garlic over the taste of fat!!!
The bread is soft but has gone a bit crunchy round the crust, over all the slices have got a bit of a salty taste but I can't tell if that comes from the garlic butter or the bread. The garlic tastes proper nice and makes the whole slice taste of it even though only one half of it is spread with the butter.
Each slice has got 93 calories and 5.2g fat in it so I wouldn't eat too many if I was you, they're only small too so I had to watch I didn't keep picking because that's a tonne of calories when I could easy eat the whole pack of 10! lol
The best thing is that these 10 slices only cost £1.00 and that's brill for the convenient of having them in the freezer ready to take out a couple of slices when I fancy them.
I really like Garlic Bread and I find that most Supermarkets versions just taste the same. Also the difference between Premium and Budget is normally just the size of the item, but I am happy to say that I like all Garlic Breads that i've tried.
Sainsbury's is a shop we shop at often. We sometimes walk up, as it is a nice 15 minute walk from our house, and if we drove up we have to endure a nightmare roundabout. Although Sainsbury's food is nice, I wonder if it always worth the price tag?
Anyway, i digress. Sainsbury's Garlic bread Slices. Thesedays I tend to eat more of the Sliced version rather then the Baguette you have to cut up. My husband can eat a Whole 9 slice baguette on it's own, where as i can only eat about 4-5 slices and i'm not too keen on the ends, and with the slices you just pop in how many slices you want, and no annoying end bits!
This is found in the freezer sections and costs £1.39 for 10 slices. Obviously being a frozen product, and cook from frozen, you just take out how many you want to cook and keep the rest for later. A great date on these as well.
The slices sit together in a plastic tray and this is covered with a plastic wrapper. I tend to cut the wrapper at the end, because if I try to open it by pulling the flaps apart then it rips right over the middle. This doesn't matter so much since it is a frozen item, but when the same thing happens when I open the fresh ones, and I have to put a food bag over the pack and I can still smell the Garlic in my fridge days after then i'm just in that habit with this pack as well.
I cook these in the oven at 200o for approx 8 minutes. The slices are quite large and smeared well with Garlic Butter. I don't like my slices too crispy, so this amount of time does fine. The ends are kind of crisp, but the bread is soft, and the flavouring soaks well into the Bread. it isn't the strongest Garlic taste i've had although when you smell these cooking you think they will be really Garlicy, as they smell it.
Great with Pizza, or I have a few slices with Spaghetti Bolognaise and I dip these slices into it so I get a nice Garlic slice with some mince on it too!
Each slice has 100 calories and 4.6g fat.
I will buy these again.
This Sainsburys garlic bread may be the no frills version at £1.39 for 12 slices,but when the bread is cooked in a hot oven the crust cooks crisp and golden and the garlic butter middle remains soft without being too greasy.The garlic is really tasty but not overpowering.
Garlic bread is a great accompaniment to many dishes.
I tend to veer away from convention and rather than serve it the traditional way,with Bolognese or chili,I am happy to serve it with a wide variety of dishes.
Hot crunchy garlic bread is so tasty served with salads and goes down a treat at a family barbecue too.
This is a packet of twelve chilled slices,if you don't want to use them all at once then it is fine to pop the rest into the freezer.
Each slice of bread contains 102 calories,it contains both milk and gluten.
If you are going to freeze it then it must be frozen on the day of purchase and then eaten within a month.The bread cannot be frozen again once it is thawed out.
Garlic bread is the one thing that I avoid like the plague if I am going anywhere special the next day!I have tried chewing a sprig of parsley or using mouthwash to remove some of the odour,but it still lingers.
But Garlic has so much going for it as a whole,it acts as a natural anti-biotic,an anti-fungal agent and it stimulates the immune system.It is used extensively to help ward off colds and flu,also to help minor infections.A clove of garlic can also be rubbed over a surface wound to help the healing process.
Long term use of Garlic pills may well help lower cholesterol and level blood sugars.
But back to Sainsburys garlic bread,it tastes good,it offers good value,the packaging is a polypropylene film wrap,which can be recycled.
One of Sainsburys many good buys!
I always keep a packet of Sainsbury's Garlic Bread Slices in the freezer as they're a tasty and quick snack. This week my granddaughters birthday party coincided with me defrosting the freezer so I took them with me when I went to help prepare the food.
These are handy because there are ten ready sliced pieces of garlic bread, you take a slice out of the plastic container as and when you fancy it and put the rest back in the freezer for next time. They don't stick together so picking just one or two out is easy and there's no bashing a solid wedge of garlic bread against the wall to separate the slices!
I grilled them from frozen under a medium heat and they were cooked in just five minutes, ideal timing when you're busy preparing a large buffet.
They had only been under the grill for 30 seconds when the kitchen was filled with a rich garlic aroma that made my mouth water. I pinched a slice straight from under the grill and it was delicious. The bread slices are buttered underneath the garlic and parsley butter and this makes them richer in flavour than other frozen garlic breads.
Because the slices of bread are quite thin you really get a nice hit of garlic because they are not so doughy as garlic baguettes. The garlic is fairly strong but not overwhelmingly so, just enough to make you feel like your breath is about to get smelly so perfect! These slices do not go crispy, they simply make the transition from soft to burned and rock hard and the texture of them is lovely.
The bread stays soft and has a nice chewy consistency, I thought it was extra nice dipped in Blue Cheese Sauce because this brought out the flavours of the herbs as well as the garlic. The crust around each slice of garlic bread is very thin and gives the slices a delicious almost burned flavour which complimented the creamy, buttery garlic butter perfectly.
Now, I think these Garlic Bread Slices are fantastic but ten people had a slice each and only myself and my sister liked them. My brother said the garlic wasn't strong enough so perhaps if you like the heat of proper garlic then this might not be for you, but even though I love garlic I still thought they were fine. 98p in Sainsbury's, buy a packet to try out because they really are lovely fresh tasting slices of garlic bread.
Two slices of this garlic bread contains 200 calories and 9.3g of fat but they are worth it!
