Make a sandwich by putting another piece of bread on this and put in the toaster long enough.

Those who do not have time to buy and prepare fresh garlic and parsley can use that shop in supermarkets in the spice section.

After use, the taste, the meals as "input" doing the times of ordinary bread or as an accompaniment of cymbals, replacing or accompanying potatoes and rice.
