Gluten Free Garlic Mini loaves

Two Saturdays ago, it was my granddaughter's birthday and following our family tradition, dinner was at my house !
I served a family favorite, lasagna along with garlic bread and salad. My daughter brought a lovely dessert - cherry cheesecake drizzled with white chocolate.

The garlic bread was a new recipe for me, I was happy that everyone enjoyed it, even the non-Celiac men in my family. .

The following recipe makes 8 mini-loaves.
