Fresh and flavourful garlic bread warm from the oven! Perfectly crisp edges, a soft buttery centre, and a cheesy golden brown toasted top with fresh garlic and herbs. The secret to really good garlic bread is simple. Use fresh garlic.

This cheesy garlic bread is one of my favourite things to make for the kids because it is so easy to make. It makes for a delicious after-school snack.

With garlic bread, there are two different types of ways you can make this garlic bread depending on how you prefer your garlic bread. Whether you like to have it crispy or soft. I like to mix it up a bit, but you can do it either way.

If you would like to get crisp garlic bread pieces, then simply slice the baguette lengthways and spread it with the homemade garlic butter then bake in the oven.

This is the method that I use, and you can check out my video if you are confused by what I mean. If you want it extra crispy then you can broil it at the end and voila! Your crispy bread is loaded with buttery garlic goodness!

However, there is an alternative method if you would prefer to have softer bread. This method involves slicing the baguette vertically.

You make vertical slices instead of one horizontal slice and then you get your garlic butter and spread it in between the slices.

Wrap the baguette in foil then bake. This allows the garlic butter to infuse its flavour through the bread whilst it retains its moisture.

It’s up to you really. Garlic bread is one of those things that everyone loves (I hope so anyway!) and is one of those comfort foods that you can’t get enough of.

This cheesy garlic bread recipe is perfect alongside a bowl of steaming soup or homemade pizza. There’s dinner sorted!

Ever wonder how to make your very own homemade garlic bread? Then look no further, this cheesy garlic bread recipe is your answer.

Garlic bread is the American cousin of a classic Italian preparation called bruschetta. Garlic bread is the ultimate staple food for your party buffets. Crushed fresh garlic is key to these flavour-packed cheesy slices of garlicky goodness.

Garlic bread can be served as a starter or as a classic accompaniment alongside any kind of soup. With this recipe, you will be able to make delicious, flavoursome and crunchy garlic bread in less than half an hour.

Your family will be itching to take a bite as soon as these are out the oven door, so be careful not to burn your fingers!

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) Gas mark 4.
  • Wash and finely chop the parsley – a handful of parsley is approximately 20g, but you can use more or less depending on personal preference.
  • Crush the garlic cloves and add to the finely chopped parsley along with the olive oil and the melted butter then mix until everything is well combined.
  • Slice a baguette lengthways or any thick bread down the middle.
  • Line a baking tray with foil and add the baguettes onto the tray.
  • Generously spread the garlic butter mixture across the baguette.
  • Then top with the mozzarella cheese (See Note 1).
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 6-8 minutes until the cheese is melted and golden brown.
  • Serve alongside your choice of pasta and enjoy!



Note 1 – Any type of cheese can be used but I personally prefer to use cheddar or mozzarella cheese.
