The best I had.. My family loves it. Now, I make it every time we had pasta. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
Perfect! This is exactly what garlic bread should be. The family inhaled it.
Turned out awesome. I was a slacker and just used garlic powder and Italian seasoning but still so good. I can only imagine how good with fresh garlic and parsley!
Im doing same thing
Tried this. Turned out perfectly.
Hello, I do it but I use garlic, lemon, olive oil, parsley, and many kinds of cheese. At first I mush the garlic and little by little I put olive oil til the mixture becomes one smooth quantity. Then little by little I add the lemon juice till the mixture becomes flabby. Adding the parsley, and if you like you can add a little bit of coriander. Putting the mixture on bread or slices of French bread baguette. Over the mixture I put Parmesan and Mozzarella. I use to do it as a pizza.
Maybe something was wrong with my broiler, but it burned my bread. I followed the recipe exactly, but still had terrible results
Hello K, whenever you broil anything, you have to watch it so it doesn’t burn. Sounds like you may have placed the bread on a rack a little too close to the broiler. Next time allow for more space, and check a minute or two in to make sure it’w working properly.
The bottom of my bread didn’t cook why (btw I used a toaster oven always works with others)it tasted like wet bread
Another great recipe! Made the toasted version (using sliced baguette) to go alongside some pumpkin soup. Would highly recommend using a sprinkle of parmesan as suggested, it takes it to the next level. The soup was delicious, but the real star was the garlic bread. Everyone ate more of it than they did the soup…
This is delicious. Definitely the best garlic bread I’ve ever had. Thanks!
i’m italian…here in italy no one eats spaghetti with garlic bread, mostly, no one know what garlic bread is supposed to be
I used a heavy duty cookie sheet and the recipe worked fine. I also skipped the broiler step and let it bake until golden brown in color, about 20 minutes. It was just the way we like it – crunchy but not too much so.
Thanks for the recipe…big hit with my 3 and 7 year old boys with our lasagne tonight!
Uhh, method 1 step 3 “Broil on high heat for 2-3 minutes until the edges of the bread begin to toast and the cheese”… THE BREAD CAUGHT ON FIRE!
Whenever you use a broiler, you need to take care and watch what you are broiling. Note the instructions, “Watch very carefully while broiling. The bread can easily go from un-toasted to burnt.” The bread should not catch fire. If it does, it’s because it’s too close to your broiler burner. ~Elise
I always broil with my oven door open a few inches. Works!
This was absolutely amazing. I loved it! Thank you!!!:)
DH and I prefer the best of both worlds: slice and spread (per method 1); bake (per step 3 of method 2) but at a much higher temp — 500° — and for twice as long (20 minutes) to get the flavors thoroughly incorporated THROUGHOUT the bread (not just on the surfaces of the slices); then finally broil (per method 1) both to “crisp it up” and to create a nice browned appearance that baking alone cannot impart.
Caveat emptor: DO NOT try this with typical overprocessed supermarket “cotton candy” loaves! You need a sturdy, whole-grain artisan loaf to stand up to the double application without becoming “mushy.” If you’re not already friends with your local sustainable artisan bakery, let this be your excuse to start :)
A tad bit more work, but well worth the effort!
I love this recipe and it’s so easy. This is the way my mom always made it when I was a kid… I add a little Srirachi sauce (spicy garlic-pepper sauce) just to give it a little kick.
Elise, I love your blog! I have tried a ton of your recipes and this one is a favorite. Thanks for putting out a great site. I wish I lived near you and could come for dinner!
How many servings can this recipe make?
Well, as many people as want to eat a loaf of bread. 6-8? ~Elise
Had company and made lasagna and was looking for a different garlic bread recipe…. I will not look any longer this got raves !!!!
I wanted to thank you for this recipe.. I recently made this for my family and we all LOVED it. I shared it today on my blog. So easy and delicious. Thanks! Have a great day…
This was so simple and tasty that I had another piece of bread. I will have to try it with olive oil next time as well since it has less saturated fat. Thanks!
