A classic garlic bread drenched in warm melted butter and browned to perfection in the oven makes a perfect addition to any home-cooked meal.
- 16 oz French bread loaf
- 1 cup salted butter softened
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 2 to 3 tbsp garlic freshly minced
- 1 tsp dried parsley or 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced (plus more for garnish)
Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Slice loaf of French bread in half lengthwise.
Stir together softened butter, sea salt, minced garlic, and parsley.
Use a spatula to spread half of the butter mixture onto the bread loaf. Place the two halves of the bread together. Wrap tightly with aluminum foil and place in the oven to bake for 30 minutes.
While the bread is heating, melt the remaining butter mixture in a small saucepan until the garlic is fragrant about 2 to 3 minutes.
After 30 minutes, unwrap the bread to make sure the butter is melted and the bread is hot all the way through. TIP: If you’d like to crisp or toast the top of the bread a bit, place the two halves face up on a baking sheet. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes or until toasted.
Brush or drizzle melted butter mixture over the toasted bread for extra garlic butter.
Sprinkle additional minced parsley over the bread if desired.
