Notes

Although we always prefer fresh ingredients in our recipes, feel free to substitute 2½ teaspoons minced garlic OR ⅝ teaspoon garlic powder for the 5 cloves of fresh garlic.

Garlic conversions:

1 medium-size clove of garlic = 1 teaspoon chopped garlic = ½ teaspoon minced garlic = ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder = ½ teaspoon garlic flakes = ¼ teaspoon granulated garlic = ½ teaspoon garlic juice
