Easy Homemade Garlic Bread

Garlic bread is always a good idea.

Here’s a super simple recipe for homemade garlic bread.

Years ago when I worked in the service deli at a grocery store we made garlic bread every day and sold it in the cold case so that all the customer had to do was bake it in the oven, and it was ready to serve.

This basic garlic bread recipe is the same way I used to make it in the service deli with the exception of adding just a bit more of each topping.

I’ve made it more times than I can count and it never lets me down.  It always tastes so good.

When I have guests over for dinner I’ll make this garlic bread in the morning or afternoon and put it in the cold oven to store it until it’s time to bake it.

The trick is not to forget it’s in the oven.  Don’t be like me and forget to serve it with the dinner!

This garlic bread makes a delicious side dish or appetizer.
