  • 1 large baguette or French bread
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • Optional: a pinch of red pepper flakes for some heat


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a small bowl, combine the softened butter, minced garlic, chopped parsley, grated Parmesan cheese (if using), and a pinch of salt. Mix

well until all ingredients are well incorporated. If you like a bit of spice, add a pinch of red pepper flakes. 3. Cut the baguette or French bread in half lengthwise. Then, spread the garlic butter mixture evenly over the cut sides of the bread.

  1. Place the bread halves on a baking sheet, buttered side up.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the butter is bubbly.
  3. For a crispier texture, you can broil the garlic bread for an additional 1-2 minutes, but watch it closely to prevent burning.

  5. Slice the bread into individual servings.
  6. Serve warm as a side with pasta, soups, salads, or enjoy as a delicious snack on its own.
