  • 1 Loaf good quality french bread can use whole wheat
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp heaping garlic minced ~4 cloves
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp salt
  • 6-8 tbsp butter softened
  • Parmesan Cheese to taste
  • tsp ~1 dried parsley


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat olive oil in small saute pan on stove over medium heat. Add minced garlic and saute until it begins to soften and smell good. DO NOT LET IT BROWN.
  • Mix sauteed garlic with 1/8 tsp salt and 6 tbsp of butter (unless you have a monstrous sized loaf of french bread, then you might need 8 tbsp). If you use unsalted butter you may want to up the salt to 1/4 tsp.
  • Slice bread in half like a giant roll, and spread butter mixture evenly on both sides. Sprinkle with dried parsley and parmesan cheese to your tastes.
  • Put garlic bread back together like a loaf (so the buttered sides are facing each other and the bread is closed).
  • Bake directly on the top rack for ~7 minutes.
  • After 7 minutes, open the garlic bread so the buttered sides of both pieces are facing the top of the oven (under the broiler).
  • Broil bread for about 5 minutes, until beginning to lightly brown and get crispy. Watch EXTREMELY carefully as the garlic bread can easily burn at this point.
  • Remove from oven, slice, and serve hot.
