Decadently Delicious Garlic Bread

Store-bought Italian bread is easily transformed into decadently delicious garlic bread - rich, messy and worth every crumb! At littlemisscelebration.comNo matter what season it is, we eat pasta at my house almost once a week. Of course, there’s always a salad to go with the pasta, but what else do we have to have? Bread! We are big bread lovers at my house. When we want a special “bread” treat, I make this decadently delicious garlic bread. It’s definitely not for the calorie faint-of-heart, but every once in a while, it’s completely worth the splurge! Rich, buttery, and laden with Italian bread crumbs, cheese and garlic, eating this bread is messy but heavenly, delicious business.

This recipe is for six pieces of garlic bread, though you could easily double or even triple it. Just make sure you have lots of butter! :) It’s so rich that I doubt anyone could really eat more than two pieces – even Mr. Smarty Pants can barely manage two pieces along with pasta and a salad. Since we start with a store-bought loaf of Italian bread, it’s easy to transform slices to decadent deliciousness! I use Polaner Chopped, ready-to-use garlic, which is so convenient.

Decadently Delicious Garlic Bread
Ingredients:

  • Loaf of Italian bread
  • 1 ½ cups of Italian bread crumbs
  • ½ cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced, or 1-2 teaspoons Polaner Chopped Garlic
  • ½ teaspoon of garlic salt
  • 2 sticks (16 tablespoons) of melted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut 6 thick slices from a loaf of Italian bread. Place bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, chopped/minced garlic, and garlic salt in a large, shallow bowl and mix well with a fork.

Put melted butter in a shallow dish. Dip bread in melted butter, turning to coat both sides. The bread will soak up a lot of butter!

Dip bread in bread crumb mixture, turning to coat both sides. Place bread slices on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Seriously, doesn’t this look so good? I made this, along with hubby’s favorite pasta dish, for Father’s Day. He definitely deserved a little decadent bread treat. My daughter and I didn’t mind a bit!

  1. This looks delicious! I might have to skip the pasta and just eat this yummy looking bread. It wouldn’t last long at my house!

  2. Cindy – This is like Texas Toast garlic bread. You don’t even need to call it decadently delicious… garlic bread will do it’s that good! Hugs, Holly

  3. YES!!!!! This is perfection! Did you know that I could live off bread, probably live off garlic bread. The boys in my house will have steak and I’ll just eat the bread! Love this and your pics are great, Cindy!! Pinned.

  4. That’s the best looking garlic bread I’ve ever seen! It looks so worth the splurge! I’m a bread lover, too!

  5. Ok, this IS decadent! I love garlic bread, I eat it as a side to anything and everything! Love how you have the grated parmesan mixed into the topping. Cannot wait to try this!!

  6. Oh no you didn’t…
    Oh my word, this does sound quite decadent and I want in on some of that action right away! Hubs made four French baguettes yesterday. Now I know what I am doing with at least half of one of those. Pinned as usual! xo

    • Claire, this is so over-the-top as far as carbs and calories but SO worth it a couple of times a year. Just have a dustpan and broom handy – it’s messy but delicious! :) Of course, I appreciate the pin! xo

  7. Part of me wants to shake my head at soaking a slice of bread in a bowl full of melted butter.

    But the other part wants to shake your hand and possibly hug you for making me want this garlic bread at bed time.

    Thank you!

    • :) I know, it’s over the top and a lot of butter – but every so often, we have to splurge just a little, right? I got such a kick out of your comment; thanks for visiting and starting my day with a smile! Have a fabulous weekend!
