Nana’s Garlic Bread

1 loaf unsliced French bread or sourdough (day-old bread works well for this recipe)
1/2 stick butter
2 large or 3 small cloves garlic, smashed
oregano to sprinkle on the bread

Slice the bread into chunks about 1″ thick and allow to dry completely.
Melt the butter in a pan, add the garlic and simmer til light brown then remove the garlic pieces from the mixture. Using the garlic sauce, butter both sides of each chunk of bread and sprinkle oregano on top. Put the chunks back  together into the loaf form, wrap in aluminum foil and bake for 20 min at 350 degrees.

Alternate short version: after buttering the bread, use garlic powder instead of the garlic cloves, add oregano and dribble with olive oil and toast in a toaster oven.
