Garlic Bread


I know…. It seems crazy to post a garlic bread recipe- but this one is PERFECT. It is reminiscent of our beloved pizza parlor garlic knots. 🙂 This recipe was adapted from Martha Stewart Kids. I omitted the broiling step. We enjoyed it with Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs and AGAIN with One-Pan Pasta. Mmmm….. What’s not to like?

Yield: Serves 4 to 6

  • 1/2 loaf French or Italian bread
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 small garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees with a rack in the top position. Slice bread in half horizontally.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together butter, garlic, and salt. Spread seasoned butter on cut sides of both bread halves.
  3. Reclose halves to form a sandwich, and wrap in aluminum foil. Bake 10 minutes.
  4. Optional Finishing Touch: Switch oven setting to broil. Remove bread from oven, and remove foil. Lay bread halves, cut side up, on a baking sheet. Place under broiler until butter bubbles and edges of bread start to turn brown, about 30 seconds.
  5. Let cool slightly, then slice into serving pieces.
