How To Make Garlic Bread Recipe:
Want to learn how to make homemade garlic bread? I will teach you how to make the easiest homemade garlic bread recipe with a delicious garlic bread spread from scratch.
I didn’t grow up eating homemade garlic bread. My mom was just too busy for that. Between a 9-5 (sometimes 9-6 or 7), a husband and two demanding kids in numerous activities, she was spread pretty thin. Looking back, I seriously have no idea how she was able to cook dinner for us at least 5 times a week! She guess she just managed to make things convenient so they worked for her. If garlic bread was served, it was served from a frozen box labeled Texas Toast alongside her famous spaghetti at dinner time. Then one day, something happened. Our local grocery store started selling homemade garlic bread in their bakery section.
My mom decided to try it out and brought home a sliced loaf that looked really delicious even in non-baked form. She popped it in the oven as she was finishing her famous spaghetti and something magical occurred at dinner. I was totally changed! Texas Toast was kicked to the curb.
I had no idea homemade garlic bread could be so delicious. I also didn’t know learning how to make homemade garlic bread could be so easy. I guess you could say I became a bit obsessed with it. I probably asked my mom to buy this bread at least once or twice a week. Sometimes I would deceptively place it in the shopping cart behind bigger items so it would make it to the check out counter. After eating factory produced garlic bread for so long, the taste of fresh bread topped with butter, minced garlic, olive oil and parsley was divine and a real eye opener.
When I started cooking on my own in college, I learned how to make an easy homemade garlic bread bread and never turned back. Now its time to teach you how to make garlic bread! I created a recipe for garlic bread that was perfect for my busy lifestyle but also utterly delicious.
