Garlic Bread

My Mom always says her craving when she was pregnant with me was garlic bread from a local pizza place and I admit I have been a garlic lover my ENTIRE life.

A favourite side to dinner around here is home made Garlic Bread and I thought I would share with you a few different ways we make it.

Recipe - w/ Garlic Butter

Step 1:

For the Garlic Butter, in a small bowl combine..
  • 1 stick of butter that has come up to room temperature
  • approx 1t of garlic powder or freshly crushed and minced garlic
  • approx 1/2t parsley flakes

Step 2: 

Spread on a sliced open baguette then top with..
  • sliced mozzarella
  • shredded cheese
  • or shredded cheese with crumbled bacon

Step 3:

Bake at 375 for approx 7-8 minutes until the cheese is melted, but keep an eye on it.

Recipe - w/ Cream Cheese

Step 1:

Get an entire head of garlic, cut off the top of the garlic so you've sliced off the top of most of the cloves. Place in a small bake wear dish like a ramekin, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, cover in tin foil and bake at 375 for approx 50 minutes.

Step 2:

Squeeze or peel out all of the roasted garlic cloves into a dish, add a brick of room temperature cream cheese and stir to combine.

Step 3:

Spread it on an sliced open baguette. Bake at 375 for approx 7-8 minutes.

Family Thoughts:

Everyone loves garlic bread here! Kids love it super cheese-y, I really like the roasted garlic.  Goes great with just about every meal and tastes way better than any of the frozen ones you get in the grocery store.


  1. I love garlic bread and it looks so easy but I still haven't got round to making any

  2. Love garlic bread but never think to put bacon on it, will try to remember next time I make it!

  3. I love garlic bread too. I never used to like garlic at all but I do now :-) I do make my own and add quite a few different herbs, it's yummy.

  4. I have never thought to use cream cheese for garlic bread. What a unique idea. Love it!
