The Best Garlic Bread

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Course Appetizer


  • 1 French bread loaf 16 oz
  • 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Shredded mozzarella optional


  • Preheat your oven to broil or 500°F.
  • Cut the French bread loaf in half horizontally. Then, cut each half in half again vertically, giving you 4 pieces.
  • In a small bowl, combine butter with parsley, garlic, Parmesan, salt, black pepper, and oregano.
  • Generously spread the butter mixture over each piece. If you like, add shredded mozzarella on top.
  • Place the pieces on a baking tray and pop them in the oven.
  • Broil for a few minutes, approximately 3 to 6 minutes. Keep a close eye on it as it can quickly burn under the broiler. Once the top is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly, take it out of the oven.
  • Slice diagonally or across into small pieces and serve.


For extra crispy garlic bread, bake it at 350°F until golden (about 10 minutes) and then add cheese on top. Broil until the cheese bubbles.
