  • 1 loaf of french bread
  • 1 cup of butter
  • 3/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 3 TBSP Italian seasoning
  • 3 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 1/2 TSP minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 TSP garlic salt


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Let butter set out to soften
  • Add all ingredients except shredded Parmesan and mix together well in a bowl
  • Slice bread in half long ways
  • Spread butter mixture on bread followed by sprinkling shredded Parmesan cheese on top and pop in oven
  • Cook for 10-12 minutes until edges of bread are golden brown



  • This way of cooking it gives you a crunchy outside and soft inside. If you want an all around soft put the two halves together and wrap fully in foil
  • The shredded Parmesan cheese does get a little crunchy. If you don't like that texture add it five minutes before cooking or skip all together
  • Do use real butter. It gives such a better flavor than a butter substitute such as margarine.
  • Buy fresh french or Italian bread. If anything prepare the garlic bread without cooking and freeze it.
  • If you want a little pop of color to this add some fresh chopped parsley to the mixture.
