Garlic bread toast for breakfast, garlic bread for lunch, for dinner…and even for snacks!
That’s how much my family loves easy homemade garlic bread! Since I love to cook, I opt to make my own rather than the ones from the bakery. At least I can adjust the flavor according to taste.
Like I do with most of the food I cook, I added a twist to the bread and turned it into homemade cheesy garlic bread. Hope you’ll enjoy preparing and eating this!
Here are the garlic bread ingredients
- ½ cup butter
- 1 ½ tablespoons garlic powder or fresh garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley
- 1 loaf of Italian bread, sliced (You can also use bagels or French bread)
- 8 ounces of shredded mozzarella cheese
How to make the garlic bread
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Then, over medium heat, use a small sauce pan to heat the butter and mix it with parsley and garlic. My family likes garlic so I use minced fresh garlic. The added aroma makes the bread more enticing! Make sure you stir the butter and turn down the heat so the butter doesn’t get burnt. Turn off the heat after a minute.
I used my Kitchenatics baking pan and rack set instead of just the cooling rack. I don’t want my oven to catch crumbs! I brushed some olive oil on the rack and placed it above the baking pan. The olive oil not only prevents the bread from sticking but also adds some extra flavor.
After arranging the sliced bread, I applied the garlic bread spread on each slice. Pop it in the oven and bake for about 8-10 minutes or until lightly toasted. Take out the bread and sprinkle the shredded mozzarella over it then bake for another 3-5 minutes.
Bring it out of the oven and enjoy! ☺
Leftover garlic bread toast can be placed in airtight containers then stored in the fridge. You can reheat them in the oven for about 3 minutes to make it crunchy again. However, in our family, we never have leftover garlic bread!
This homemade garlic bread is easy and great for pasta dishes. You can also slice them into cubes and use them as croutons for soup and salad.
