5 Minute Garlic Bread

5 Minute Garlic Bread

  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: 4-6 1x

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp garlic, freshly minced
  • 1 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 baguette, cut into thick 1.5 cm or 1/2” slices
  • 1.5 cups grated melting cheese (see note 1), optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven grill/broiler.
  2. Melt the butter in 10-second intervals in the microwave until it softens (it will take roughly 20 seconds).
  3. Mix in garlic, parsley and salt using a spoon.
  4. Spread the butter mixture on one side of the bread slices.
  5. Top each slice with the grated cheese, if using.
  6. Place your bread on a baking tray (use two trays if needed so that no pieces overlap). Grill/broil for 2-5 minutes. They will cook quickly. Keep an eye on them.
  7. Serve immediately.

Notes

Note 1 – Mozzarella or tasty cheese/cheddar is best. Pre-shredded cheese can be used but contains additives. It doesn’t melt as well as freshly grated cheese.

MAKE AHEAD

Follow the recipe up until step 5. Refrigerate, covered, for up to 24 hours. Cook as per the recipe. Check out my Freezer Friendly Garlic Bread for a freezer alternative.
