The Best Garlic Bread (and fun ways to serve it)

Everyone loves garlic bread. I am sharing my recipe for the best garlic bread. This is my go-to recipe and I love it because it comes together quickly and can be served so many ways.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 2


  • 2 slices of Italian Bread cut one inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon Butter a room temperature
  • 2 cloves of Garlic
  • 1/8 teaspoon Onion Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dried Basil
  • 1 tablespoon Finely Grated Parmesan


  1. First, place the butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the butter for 5 seconds. You do not want it to melt, you just want it to be a little warmer than room temperature.
  2. Then use a garlic press or microplane to mince the garlic. Add the garlic to the bowl with the butter, and then add the onion salt and basil. Stir to combine.
  3. Spread the butter on one side of each slice of bread. Sprinkle the Parmesan over the top, and gently press it into the butter.
  4. Place the bread on a baking sheet, garlic side facing up. Put it in the center of the oven and turn the oven on to low-broil or broil. Keep a careful watch on the bread, after 2-4 minutes it will be toasted. Serve right away.
