Garlic Bread with Paprika Hearts

This is a simple technique that was inspired by some of the cake decorating ideas I have seen on Pinterest. The ones where they take a stencil or a cookie cutter and then apply powdered sugar or sprinkles and you are left with a cute design. Here is one example.

I was trying to come up with something cute to serve along side our Valentine’s day lunch. I had already planned to serve garlic bread, so I thought why not use the same technique but with something savory like paprika.

Here is how I did it.

You need

  • Buttered Garlic Bread
  • Paprika
  • Waxed Paper

Preheat your oven to 350. Lay out your garlic bread on a baking sheet. Cut out a rectangle of waxed paper large enough to cover the individual pieces of bread. Cut a heart out of the middle of the rectangle. Lay the waxed paper stencil on top of the bread and sprinkle on the paprika.


Carefully move the stencil to the other pieces and repeat the process.


Bake until heated through. Enjoy!


I think this would be fun to use with cinnamon toast too. I am going to try that in the near future.
