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!

Let’s check out the ingredients.

A printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.
Here’s how to make it.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Cut the French bread.
It can be cut in half lengthwise, cut into quarters, or cut into thick slices; however you prefer.
Using a spatula, spread softened butter on top of the cut side of the bread.
Then sprinkle the granulated garlic on top of the butter.
Using the spatula spread the granulated garlic evenly over the bread…
…sprinkle the paprika over the butter and garlic and spread it evenly over the bread.
Add parsley flakes,
and with a spatula, spread it evenly over the top of the bread.
Top with grated Parmesan cheese,
…with a spatula lightly spread it over the top of the bread.
Wrap the garlic bread in foil and set on a cookie sheet.
Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes then remove the bread from the oven, carefully open the foil up and put it back in the oven so that the garlic bread will toast.
Continue baking in the oven for another 5 to 8 minutes until the bread is hot all the way through and the top is slightly toasted.
Serve warm right out of the oven…then…
…enjoy each crispy buttery spicy delicious bite.
