Fresh garlic is what really makes this difference in this recipe.  I use a garlic press to crush the cloves because it makes a finer texture to smear on the bread than mincing does.

Variations to the Simple Homemade Garlic Bread recipe:

  1. I like to use roasted garlic artisan bread to make this recipe REALLY garlicky.  However, any bread will do.  French or Italian bread would be my second choice (behind roasted garlic), and I have even made this recipe with sandwich slices in a pinch!
  2. Sometimes I add grated Parmesan to the top of the slices for an extra yummy punch of flavor!
  3. Most bread loaves are 16 oz, so double the recipe if you want to use the whole loaf.
  4. If you use salted butter, omit the salt from the recipe.
