Make Ahead Crisp Buttery Garlic Bread

In the past, I’ve always purchased frozen garlic bread.  Particularly the Texas Toast kind.  After trying this recipe, garlic bread is yet another thing I’ll be making on my own!  I’ve made this recipe quite a few times already.  It is so easy to whip up a whole loaf at a time and freeze the extra pieces for later.  So far, I’ve used store-bought French Bread.  Ultimately, I’d like to use my own homemade French Bread in this recipe!

Homemade Garlic Bread

Make Ahead Crisp Buttery Garlic Bread

from My Kitchen Cafe


  • 12 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 4 garlic cloves, very finely minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 (1-inch) slices Italian or French bread

Using a fork, beat butter, garlic, sugar, salt and pepper in small bowl until combined. Spread butter mixture evenly over both sides of bread.

Freeze the slices on a large baking sheet or plate until firm, about 15 minutes. After they are firm, transfer the slices to a freezer ziploc bag and freeze for up to one month.

To serve, preheat oven to 425 degrees. Arrange bread on rimmed baking sheet and bake until golden brown on the first side, about 10 minutes. Flip and bake until golden brown on the second side, 6-7 minutes more. Serve.

Note: To serve the bread immediately instead of freezing, bake buttered bread on rimmed baking sheet at 425 degrees for 8 minutes then flip and bake 5 more minutes on the second side.
