Easy Italian Seasoned Garlic Bread Recipe
A super simple, crunchy and delicious appetizer or side dish that can be made ahead of time and then baked right before serving.
This easy-to-make garlic bread is a great reason to pick up some fresh French bread next time you’re at the grocery store.
You know the ones, they’re in some grocery stores right next to the checkout, sitting there looking delicious in a basket…freshly baked, sometimes warm, loaves of French bread that smell so heavenly it’s almost impossible not to grab one and put it in your cart.
Now you have just the recipe to make with that French bread.
This garlic bread can be made ahead of time too which is super convenient because all that needs to be done before serving is to bake it in the oven for about 12 minutes or until its warmed through and crispy.
This recipe is made with granulated garlic and dried herbs that taste similar to Italian seasoning.
It’s topped with grated Parmesan cheese that adds a little crunch after it’s baked.
And if there’s any leftovers, store the garlic bread in the refrigerator and it toasts up nicely in a toaster oven.
Let’s check out the ingredients.
French bread, butter, granulated garlic, dried basil leaves, dried oregano, ground black pepper, grated Parmesan cheese, olive oil, chopped fresh parsley (curly or flat Italian)
