Ah a warm piece of garlic bread, what's not to love? For me, this is one of the best parts to a meal involving soup, stew or spaghetti. I just love to dip the warm garlicky bread in a warm soup and let it soak up all of that flavourful juice. When I make this I never have any leftover.

Makes 1 loaf

Preheat the oven to 400 Degrees F.
Baking time: 15-20 minutes


  • one baguette loaf or ciabatta bread, split in half
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, grated
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • pinch of ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • handful of freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)

1. Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Split a baguette or ciabatta loaf in half and set it aside.

2. In a mixing bowl, add in room temperature butter and grate in 2 cloves of garlic. Then add the dried oregano, parsley, ground black pepper, and the tablespoon of lemon juice. Gently mix it altogether using a rubber spatula. Spread the garlic butter all over the split baguette or ciabatta loaf and then sprinkle a generous handful of freshly grated Parmesan cheese. If you like your garlic bread over the top sprinkle a handful of shredded mozzarella cheese.

3. Place it into the oven to bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden brown on top. Take it out of the oven and cool it for a minute. Slice it into 2-3" pieces and serve immediately.
