Toasted Garlic Bread is a must with your classic Pasta dishes. An Italian or French loaf brushed with a Homemade Garlic Butter that really packs a Buttery Garlic infused flavor.

It’s got all the aesthetics with its bright and vibrant colors. Red tones from the Aleppo Pepper, Shades of Greens from Parsley, Chives, Dill weed and a yellow color from the Butter and Butter popcorn seasoning with bits of Onion & Garlic.

How to Prepare Garlic Bread

Prepare the Garlic Butter and give it some time to rehydrate the Onion & Garlic Flakes.

Slice an Italian or French loaf or other kinds in half and slather on the Garlic Butter. This can go straight to cooking or placed back in the bag to cook later.

How to cook Garlic Bread

Oven Garlic Bread

Preheat the oven to 450 F. Place the loaf on a baking tray and bake for 5 minutes. Optionally place the oven on broil the last minute for browning the top.

Oven Baked Garlic Bread

Optionally wrap in tin foil to bake for 5 minutes, then unwrap to bake or broil further and crisp up the bread to your liking. Wrapping in tinfoil will hold the moisture in and creates a softer texture initially that then gets toasted up. This method offers more chew to the bread.

Air Fryer Garlic Bread

Slice the Bread loaf in half in order to fit it into the Air Fryer and Cook for 5 minutes or until crisp to your liking at 400 F.

How to Freeze Garlic Bread

Make a bunch of Garlic Loaves and freeze. Slather some Garlic Butter on and wrap in tinfoil, then in a plastic bag to freeze. Whenever you need some, pop it in the oven at 450 F still wrapped in tinfoil. Bake frozen loaves for about 10 minutes or until softened before unwrapping and toasting to your liking.

Garlic Bread with Cheese

Add Cheese! Sprinkle some cheese on and bake. For a more chewy just melted cheese topping, sprinkle the cheese on during the last stage of cooking and then place the oven on broil to melt the cheese just until brown spots form.

Use a High Moisture Mozzarella Cheese with Provolone at a ratio of 3:1. The Provolone adds additional flavor and really exaggerates the cheesy stretch. A bit of Cheddar Cheese or Parmesan & Romano Cheese.
