Toast (Hrianka)

« »

Ingredients: good hearty bread, clove of garlic, salt
Prep Time: 5 minutes

I don’t know if this is how toast is served everywhere in Slovakia, but I grew up eating toasted bread with garlic scraped on it. We called it “hrianka”. It’s really tasty. The garlic gives the bread creamy, buttery taste. No butter needed. It’s really easy to prepare. Simply toast few slices of hearty bread, until they are nicely brown and crunchy on the outside. Then take a clove of garlic and scrape it on one side. Or on both sides, if you are brave and have no intentions of kissing anyone for a while. I usually use about quarter of a clove per side. Sprinkle with salt and enjoy.
