Garlic bread is one of those things that I could eat with pretty much any meal. So when I found this easy recipe for making my own homemade version, I jumped at the chance to try it!
This garlic bread recipe couldn’t be any easier. It starts with a loaf of your favorite bakery bread. The original recipe called for a loaf of ciabatta but my grocery store did not have any. I used a loaf of French bread instead.
Just slice up your bread, without cutting the whole way through. This will help keep all of the goodies you stuff between the slices intact while it bakes.
Blend together some butter, garlic, olive oil, parsley, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese. Evenly divide the mixture between the bread slices. Wrap the loaf in some foil and bake.
This garlic bread is so flavorful. I like it because it isn’t overly greasy like most store bought loaves of garlic bread can be. It’s a nice blend between buttery, garlicky and cheesy. So good!
- 1 large loaf bakery bread (I used French bread)
- 4 - 6 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup parsley
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temp
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Using a serrated knife, slice bread into thick pieces. Leave about 1/2 inch at the bottom uncut, so the filling stays in while it cooks.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients with a fork until as smooth as you can get it.
- Stuff the filling in between each slice of bread. It will be a lot, but be generous and use it all.
- Wrap the bread tightly in aluminum foil and place the loaf on a baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. Uncover the bread and bake for another 5 minutes.
- Cut slices through and serve warm.
