It’s Garlic Day!


That’s right friends, today is Garlic Day.  So, of course, it’s a great excuse to make a delicious recipe with lots of garlic in it for dinner tonight, right??  I did a quick search on Taste of Home’s website for recipes using garlic, and there are over 10,000 to choose from!  Here are some that just might make their way to my dinner table tonight:  Shrimp Scampi sounds so good right now, doesn’t it?

Shrimp Scampi from Lori Packer of Omaha, Nebraska looks like you fussed, but it’s a snap to prepare. Lemon and herbs enhance the shrimp, and bread crumbs add a pleasing crunch. Served over pasta, this main dish is pretty enough for company.

I also enjoy these Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes as a side dish for a lot of dinner recipes.  I can never get enough :) Additionally, garlic bread is always a great choice when you just need a little something extra to add to your meal.  I really like this Garlic Herb Braid, because it looks so nice, and is easy to make.

Savory flavors of rosemary, dill, garlic and basil blend beautifully in this homey loaf that goes great with almost any main dish. Get ready for oohs and aahs when you bring this tender and impressive braid to the table!

  1. Is there a flavorful substitute for those of us whose stomach will not tolerate garlic? As you indicated there is a high percentage of TOH recipes that include garlic.

  2. I can’t think of any food that i don’t put garlic in except desserts! My entire family and friends love my cooking. Neighbors too!!!

  3. garlic is aromatic in food, especially in bread, taste so amazing.I always spread on a left over bread with butter. Garlic has lot to use, depends ou your taste bud.
