Cut loaf of French bread in half lengthwise, then in half again. Making 4 equal pieces. Working with 1/4 a loaf at a time, melt 2 Tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Then add 1 clove of minced garlic. Place 1 of the sections of bread, face down, into the skillet. Swirl bread around to soak up the butter and garlic, and allow bread to toast very slightly. Remove bread and place on a baking sheet, face up. Repeat process with remaining butter, garlic and bread.
