Garlic Bread - This buttery, garlicky bread can be made with whatever bread you have on hand at home. Whether it's your standard sliced bread, a yummy loaf you picked up from the bakery section, or even your homemade sourdough, this spread works!


  • Bread (use your favorite loaf) 
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened (I use unsalted and add my own salt)
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley 
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. Add all ingredients (except bread) to a food processor. 
  3. Pulse until smooth. 
  4. Spread the butter evenly over your slices of bread (or half loaf if using french bread)
  5. Place on a baking sheet and toast for 6 minutes (or until beginning to brown). If you need them browned further, you can pop them under the broiler for an additional minute, but be careful! Bread burns quickly! 
  6. Remove from the oven and enjoy with your favorite dish. I like to sprinkle mine with a little extra coarse kosher salt right out of the oven.
