Green Garlic Toast

Green Garlic Toast

Slices of crusty bread
½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick), softened
½ cup grated Parmesan
4 tablespoons Red Dog Farm chopped young green garlic stalks, white and green parts

¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon fine sea salt, more to taste
Large pinch red chili flakes

Heat the broiler. Place the bread slices on a baking sheet and broil them, flipping them halfway through cooking time, until golden on both sides. Keep warm. In a bowl, stir together the butter, cheese, green garlic, chives, pepper, salt and chili.Rub the toast with the cut side of the regular garlic clove, then spread with the green garlic butter. Broil toast again for 30 seconds to 2 minutes, until the tops lightly brown and the butter melts. Serve hot or warm.
