In a small bowl mix together softened butter with minced garlic, salt, and oregano.

Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese if desired.
Place baking sheet into a preheated oven and toast for 3-4 minutes. Flip slices of bread over and toast for 2-3 minutes on the remaining side.
Dairy-Free Garlic Bread, use olive oil in place of butter and omit Parmesan Cheese. Garlic: Feel free to use 1 teaspoon dried garlic powder in place of fresh garlic. Fresh is best for taste, but dried will work. Feel free to melt the butter and then mix with seasonings instead of preparing the compound butter. Simply brush each side of your bread with the melted butter using a pastry brush.If you like your garlic toast softer, bake at 375 degrees for 4-6 minutes per side, instead of at 425 degrees.It is NOT necessary to spread both sides of the bread with the garlic butter. By buttering both sides, it is more like store-bought Garlic Texas Toast.Day-Old Bread is best as it will slice easier and toast up more evenly. Freezing Garlic Toast: Prepare garlic toast up to baking in the oven. Place the buttered garlic bread on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Freeze until just solid--about 20 minutes. Remove slices of garlic bread from parchment paper and place in a freezer-safe bag. To bake, preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place frozen garlic toast on a baking sheet. Bake for 7 minutes on one side, flip and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes or until golden.
