Traditionally garlic bread is made using a baguette (a French bread), ciabatta (an Italian bread), or sourdough bread.

Tips for making garlic bread with sliced bread

When making homemade garlic bread with sliced bread, keep the following points in mind for the best results:

  • Although I prefer using unsalted bread since you can adjust the salt according to your liking, you can use salted bread as well. in such a case, make sure you don’t add additional salt to the butter.
  • You can use fresh or dried parsley or any other herb of your choice. You can also use chives.
  • Add grated parmesan cheese for a cheesy flavor. If you are a cheese lover and want to make cheesy garlic bread, you can add mozzarella cheese as well.
  • Freshly minced garlic cloves are ideal for that delicious garlicky goodness, but if you don’t have fresh garlic at home, you can replace it with garlic powder. It will give you the same flavor and aroma.
  • Butter makes the bread crisp when baking but you can replace it with olive oil as well.
  • Don’t forget to flip the bread after 5 minutes to ensure both sides get the perfect color and crisp up.
  • You can make garlic bread with sliced bread using an air fryer as well. Just remember to flip it halfway for the best results.
