How To Make Easy Cheesy Garlic Bread

Make any dish more appetizing by serving it with this cheesy garlic bread. It’s made with buttered French bread topped with melty cheese.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 25 minutes



  • 14ozFrench or Italian bread,(1 loaf)
  • ¼cupsalted butter,softened
  • 2tbspolive oil,not extra virgin
  • 1tbspgarlic,minced, or 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper,to taste
  • cupsmozzarella cheese,shredded
  • cupParmesan cheese,finely shredded
  • 1tbspfresh parsley,finely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Slice bread in half lengthwise (through the height of bread).

  2. Cut two sheets of foil about 24-inch long and place side by side, letting one slightly overlap the other on a rimmed cookie sheet. Place bread, cut side up, on the baking sheet.

  3. In a mixing bowl, using a fork, stir together butter, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.

  4. Spoon and spread mixture evenly over the entire surface of both bread halves (working to coat the edges too so they don’t burn).

  5. Wrap foil over bread, crimp edges together, and roll up the ends of the foil. Bake for 10 minutes.

  6. Remove from oven, open foil, and roll it inward. Sprinkle bread evenly with cheeses.

  7. Return to oven and bake for 5 to 6 minutes longer uncovered. Broil during the last 1 to 2 minutes for crisper bread and more golden cheese, if desired. No need to move the rack upward.

  8. Sprinkle tops evenly with parsley. Cut into slices and serve warm.
