The secret to really good garlic bread is to keep it simple. And to use a lot of garlic—4 cloves for one loaf! This recipe is the perfect side for our Spaghetti Bolognese…or really any Italian pasta dinner.
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, softened
1 baguette or French bread, cut lengthwise
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
2 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley
1/4 c. grated Parmesan
- Preheat oven to 425° and line a large baking sheet with foil. Make garlic compound butter: In a small bowl, mix softened butter with garlic, salt, and parsley until well combined.
- Spread cut sides of bread liberally with garlic butter. Sprinkle with Parmesan.
- Bake until bread is toasty and golden at the edges, about 10 minutes.
