Few things are as irresistible as a loaf of warm toasted garlic bread. Dipped in homemade marinara or eaten alongside a fresh salad, a tender, crunchy, buttery slice rounds out many a meal.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 400° F. Slice the loaf into 1-inch-thick slices without cutting all the way through the bread.

  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes; let cool slightly. Add the parsley and ½ teaspoon salt. Brush the butter mixture between the slices and wrap the loaf in foil.

  • Bake until warmed through, 10 to 15 minutes. Open the foil and bake until lightly toasted on top, 5 to 7 minutes more. Serve warm.
