Garlic bread secrets
Let me tell you some simple garlic bread secrets:
- Fresh bread – garlic bread should be made using fresh bread. This may be obvious but I can’t count the number of times we got old stale bread in a restaurant they tried to revive in the oven.
- Fresh butter – the same applies to the garlic butter. Get fresh butter and let it go soft outside of the fridge.
- Crushed garlic – when using garlic do not mince it with a knife but crush the garlic with a pestle and mortar. This will release some oil but also takes away the sharpness of the garlic.
- Cheese mix – use a mix of cheese like mozzarella and parmesan that work together perfectly. The Mozzarella will go soft and bubbly with the parmesan adds some salty taste.
- Bake and broil – you not only bake the bread in the oven but you also put the bread under the broiler
Garlic bread ingredients
To make this cheesy garlic bread you need just a couple of ingredients:

How to make homemade garlic bread with cheese
Start this recipe with the garlic butter. Let the butter go soft and crush the garlic in a pestle and mortar. Then mince the fresh parsley.
Then add the garlic and finely chopped parsley to the butter. Stir the garlic and parsley until you have a well-combined butter.
Cut the loaf of bread in half, length way and spread the garlic butter on the inside of the bread. Preheat the oven to 350℉/175℃.
Put the halved bread on a baking tray buttered side up. Bake the bread in the middle of the oven for 15 minutes. Take the bread out of the oven.
Turn the oven to broil. Then first sprinkle the parmesan on the bread. Then cover all of the bread with the hard mozzarella including the edges.
Return the baking tray under the broiler for 4-5 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling and has brown patches.
Sprinkle some finely chopped fresh parsley on top and serve straight away.
