This is my go-to garlic bread recipe. Feel free to kick it up, twist it and make it your own! I've listed the basic recipe; sometimes I'll add 1/2 C of shredded cheese to make garlic-cheese bread, sometimes I'll add a few teaspoons of pesto, sometimes a teaspoon of onion powder or kick it up with a pinch of red pepper flakes. However, there's nothing wrong with the "plain" basic recipe!

How To Make toasted garlic bread

  • 1
    Preheat broiler. Split French bread loaf horizontally. Left over hotdog or hamburger buns also work!
  • 2
    Mix together spread ingredients, including any and all mix-in choices. Mix well.
  • 3
    Spread mixture on cut-side of bread. Broil for 5 minutes under oven broiler - watch carefully as it can burn quickly and it is very sad.
