Servings 6 servings


  • 1 large half baked French baguette 17 oz.
  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • 2 small garlic bulbs roasted
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • ¼ cup parsley chopped
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper fresh cracked


  • Preheat oven to 375 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 30-40 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 10 minutes. Remove from oven, open up the foil wrap and cook for another 5-10 minutes uncovered to allow it to get golden in color.
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool for a couple of minutes before serving.


  • It's very important to bake the garlic until it caramelizes to get the delicious garlicy yet sweet flavor.
  • Use different fresh herbs if you like. I prefer parsley as it's the perfect option for garlic bread.
  • Use unsalted butter and add salt to taste this way you can adjust the salt to your liking. Some salted butters can be very salty depending on the brand.
  • It is important to cover with foil wrap for first half of the cook time, this way the bread stay soft and only cooked uncovered until a little golden for the second half of the time.
  • If you love cheese, add some grated parmesan cheese between the pieces of bread. It comes out incredible.
  • Leave skin on garlic when you roast them to prevent them from burning and drying up.
