Servings 6 servings


  • 1 large half baked French baguette 17 oz.
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 2 small garlic bulbs roasted
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup parsley chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper fresh cracked


  • Preheat oven to 350 degree F
  • Cut the garlic bulbs on the top and drizzle 1 tsp. of olive oil on each garlic bulb. Wrap the garlic bulbs with foil wrap and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime chop the parsley. Place the baguette onto a sheet pan lined with foil paper and slice the baguette.
  • Once the garlic has roasted, open up the foil and let it cool for 5 minutes.
  • Keep the oven on
  • Squeeze out the garlic bulbs to remove the flesh onto a plate. Add in the softened butter, chopped parsley, salt and pepper. Mash everything together to form a paste. It does not have to be super creamy.
  • Rub the butter paste between the sliced baguette bread pieces. Brush a little bit of the leftover paste on the outside of the baguette bread.
  • Wrap with foil wrap and bake for 15 minutes. Note: If you want it more brown, broil the top for a couple of minutes or remove the foil while baking the last 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool for a couple of minutes before serving.


  • If you want less garlic, you can use 1 bulb only.
  • Use different fresh herbs if you like.
  • Replace roasted garlic with 2 cloves of fresh garlic.
  • Use unsalted butter and add salt to taste. Do not use salted butter, some brands can be very salty.
  • For a more herby garlic bread, you can add in some dried oregano or rosemary.
  • You can sprinkle some parmesan onto the cooked garlic baguette for a cheesy twist.
