I stopped pre-made garlic bread in the freezer section at the grocery store because making it yourself  so easy to make with only a handful of ingredients and little time to make.  Why buy it when you can make it for a fraction of the cost? My next game plan is to try to start making homemade bread and then use this garlic spread to top it off with! Plus it tastes so much better!

  1. That sounds DELICIOUS!! I grew up in a big Italian family and garlic bread was a staple at most dinners.

  2. This is similar to how my husband makes garlic bread. He doesn’t roast the garlic first but will toast the bread and spread in the oven. I’m going to suggest roasting it because I don’t care to bite into a big chunk of almost raw garlic 🙂

  3. That looks so good. And I love that you roasted the garlic a little bit.

  4. Looks yummy, Much yummier than the frozen ones I usually get. I like that it’s easy to make too. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Great recipe.. garlic bread goes with everything in my opinion!

  6. See, I guess I need to stop buying it in the store and make it too. That looks delicious!

  7. This looks really good. I bought fresh french bread earlier today but it got eaten before I could add anything to it.

  8. You make it like I do and its soo yummy! Now I am craving it again. Shhh I can even eat it at breakfast lol

  9. This sounds tasty to me. I have a 6yr old who loves garlic bread like no other. 🙂

  10. Ann Bacciaglia says:

    What a great idea!! Now I want some garlic bread.

  11. I love making my own spread too, my husband always breaks down and buys the bread at the store, shame shame.

  12. The look yummy and delicious. In summer holidays, my neice is preparing for a pajama party next weekend. I am sure all her friends would love the garlic bread spread

  13. Fantastic recipe. Looks tasty to me.

  14. we eat garlic bread with just about every meal. this looks so delicious i could easily eat all of it right now, at 10am! I’m gonna try your recipe next time i bake some…like tonight!

  15. Sounds and LOOKS amazing! I’ll have to make this for our spaghetti!

  16. Angela S says:

    I wouldn’t need anything else. I would be perfectly happy eating just this bread!

  17. This looks so good. The only bad thing would be that I would eat every bite myself!

  18. That looks better than the stuff you get in the freezer selection, thanks for the idea.

  19. What a simple recipe for the Garlic Bread Spread! I’m sure it tastes delicious!

  20. Garlic Bread is one of my favorites. I can eat just garlic bread and sauce as my dinner.

  21. My daughter loves garlic on everything. I will definitely have to make her some of this really soon.

  22. Oh gosh, that looks good! I want some now with a big plate of spaghetti.

  23. My kids are crazy about garlic on anything. Thanks for the recipe!

  24. We just had bread sticks the other night with our pizza but this recipe definitely kicks their butts! This is a MUST make 🙂

  25. My family loves garlic on practically everything! We eat garlic bread a lot and love dipping it in any sort of warm red sauce.

  26. I love garlic bread. Yours looks great! I do mine in a similar way, it really is so easy like you mentioned.

  27. DG Middendorf says:

    Looks so good and sounds so easy. I think I can do this. Thank you.

  28. Pierre Mosbey says:

    Wow, this looks awesome!

  29. That is a lot of garlic. I used to eat garlic bread, still do. Just not very often unless it has cheese on top.

  30. Kathy Lane says:

    Yummy! I love garlic bread and this looks so simple to make.Thanks for sharing!

  31. James Robert says:

    My kids for a snack often ask for the frozen garlic bread. I have never tried making them my own but they would like it if I bought the french bread loaves and did this. Looks great!

  32. This looks and sounds amazing! Looks like I’ll be making it to snack on!
