ULTIMATE GARLIC BREAD — French bread is smothered in seasoned garlic butter, then sprinkled with grated Parmesan cheese and toasted to perfection. The perfect side for almost any meal!
I make this Ultimate Garlic Bread several times a week at my house. It’s safe to say it’s a dinner time staple around here.
In fact, when some of my kids were younger, pickier eaters, I’m pretty sure there were nights when this garlic bread was the only thing they ate for dinner.
After serving so much garlic bread, I’ve definitely come up with my favorite way to make it, which includes plenty of butter, Parmesan cheese, garlic salt and Italian seasoning. I always finish my garlic bread off with a sprinkling of freshly chopped parsley too!
The best thing about garlic bread, of course, is that it’s so easy to make, and everyone loves it. Full of flavor, crispy on the outside and soft an chewy on the inside. What’s not to love about that?
I realize you could prob ably figure out how to whip up a loaf of garlic bread without a recipe, but here’s a handy tip for you.
Mix up a double batch of the butter and seasoning mixture and keep it in your refrigerator (for up to a week). Then when you’re ready for some garlic bread, most of the prep work is already done.
It’s a great way to save a few minutes on a busy weeknight. I don’t know about you, but when I’m making dinner for a houseful of hungry boys, I’m happy to save any time I can in the kitchen–because those boys eat faster than I can cook!
Next time you’re wondering what to serve with your main course, chances are garlic bread is the answer. And when it comes to making the ultimate garlic bread, you won’t find a simpler, better tasting recipe than this one.
