  • Total Time: 22 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x




  • 1 (16oz) loaf French or Italian bread
  • 1/2 C salted butter, room temperature
  • 10 – yes 10! – garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 tbsp flat-leaf Italian parsley, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp garlic pepper*
  • 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt, to taste


  1. Slice your loaf of bread lengthwise down the middle. Place the two halves on a baking sheet lined with a silicone liner or aluminum foil. Set it aside and preheat the oven to 450°F. Make sure an oven rack is in the top half of the oven.
  2. Place your softened butter in a small bowl and use a spatula or wooden spoon to fold all of the remaining listed ingredients – except the salt – into the butter. Make sure all ingredients are completely incorporated into the butter, then give it a taste. Add the salt if you think it needs it.
  3. Slather a generous amount of garlic butter over each half of the bread. Don’t make the layer too thick – the butter will burn and the bread will become greasy – and make sure it’s even across the surface.
  4. Pop the garlic bread into the oven and let bake for 7-10 minutes. Keep an eye on it, so we don’t over-brown or burn things. Once the butter has melted and seeped into the bread and is bubbling at the edges, switch the oven to the broiler.
  5. Broil the bread on high for just a couple of minutes, until the edges are deeply browned. Remove from the oven and as soon as it’s cooled enough to handle go ahead and slice it with a serrated knife and serve. The fresher the better in this case. Dassit!


*I use Brass Cuisine’s Garlic Pepper. Substitute this by adding an extra 1/2 teaspoon of granulated garlic and 1/8 teaspoon of cracked black pepper.
