In Your Conventional Oven: Heat garlic bread in this foil bag at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 15 minutes in a conventional oven. Cut into individual portions and enjoy! For a Crispy Crust: Place the pizza under the broiler. Remove bread halves from the foil bag and place them, garlic-side up, on a baking sheet.
How do you reheat garlic bread purchased in a store?
How to Warm Food – OVEN: Wrap leftover garlic bread in aluminum foil and place it on a baking sheet, whether it is sliced or a whole loaf. If the bread is sliced, place it in the foil in a single layer. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 15 minutes, or until thoroughly heated.
Modifying the Recipe – To make this an easy cheesy garlic bread, simply add some shredded cheese to the butter mixture. You can use one or multiple types of cheese. I enjoy using a combination of mozzarella and parmesan. However, cheddar will also be quite tasty.
In this recipe, I recommend but do not require the use of French sticks. Standard sliced bread can still be used with butter. I recommend toasting the bread before spreading it with garlic butter for optimal results. For optimal results, I suggest using fresh garlic. However, if you cannot obtain fresh garlic, garlic powder will suffice.
Due to the potency of garlic powder, it may be necessary to reduce the quantity by half. If you want to see how to make this simple garlic bread recipe, watch the video that follows. If you are not in the mood to watch the video, the recipe is also available in text format immediately below.
- 1 French stick or an equivalent
- 6 Tbsp softened butter
- 2 teaspoons of crushed garlic
- 2 teaspoons fresh chopped parsley
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit).
- Cut the French stick into approximately 2 cm (34 inch) thick slices. Do not cut all the way through
- instead, stop about three-quarters of the way through.
- Combine the garlic, butter, and parsley in a bowl.
- Spread the butter mixture in between the cuts of the French stick using a knife.
- For extra crunchy garlic bread, you can either wrap the bread in aluminum foil or bake it plain.
- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the butter has melted and the bread is lightly toasted.
- Take out of the oven.
- Serve and relish.
- The butter mixture you create for this recipe can be used in other dishes, such as garlic shrimp, so be sure to save any leftovers.
- Wrapping garlic bread in aluminum foil is not required, but it helps the bread cook more evenly. If you choose not to use aluminum foil, I suggest placing the food on a baking sheet.
- If you are short on time, you can cook this in the microwave without the foil, but it will become quite soft and less appetizing.
- dried parsley can be substituted for fresh parsley. As dried herbs tend to be more potent, you may need to cut the parsley quantity in half.

Why isn’t my garlic bread crunchy?
How can I prevent my garlic bread from becoming soggy? Restaurants make garlic bread rapidly and in large quantities, which can affect their processes and outcomes. Typically, they are content to spread the garlic butter quickly and primarily on the bread’s center, as it quickly covers the majority of the bread.
It is forgiving and spreadable enough that the garlic bread made this way is still quite tasty, but a little more care may be all that is required to make it more to your liking. Use a thin layer of garlic butter and spread it evenly towards the bread’s edges if you’re concerned about sogginess. If you want to be extremely cautious, remove the garlic butter from the bread’s center.
This way, there won’t be an excess of butter in the middle, and the edges won’t become hard and dry from having too little. Additionally, ensure that your garlic bread is toasted at an adequate temperature and speed. If it is toasted at a much lower temperature or sits for a longer period of time afterward, the butter is more likely to melt, pool, and soak into the bread before the toasting is complete.
- Really, all you should need to do to prepare garlic bread is to warm the bread and lightly toast the top.
- This can be completed quickly, and the bread can be toasted and consumed while still warm and fresh, preventing it from becoming soggy.
- If you truly desire a drier garlic bread, you might consider lightly toasting the bread before spreading on the garlic butter, and again (or not) afterward, depending on your preference.
This will extract some of the bread’s moisture and create a drier crust between the bread and butter, preventing the bread from becoming too soggy: How can I prevent my garlic bread from becoming soggy?
Can bread be baked in an aluminum foil pan? Yes, it’s acceptable. Remember to oil it beforehand. If you don’t want the crust to be too crisp, it would be preferable if you could also place it on a baking sheet.
Can frozen garlic bread be cooked?
The frozen garlic bread pieces can be placed directly from the freezer into the oven. When ready to serve, preheat an oven (or toaster oven) to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Place frozen bread slices with the buttered side facing up on a baking sheet. Bake for five minutes or until butter melts and edges are golden.

How does New York Bakery in Cleveland, Ohio, prepare the Original Texas Toast? We are glad you asked! The Penn family founded New York Bakery in New York City over fifty years ago.
They relocated their small family bakery to Cleveland, Ohio, where they continued to specialize in the crusty, chewy, hearth-baked breads that remain popular in Europe. We cannot claim credit for the invention of Texas Toast-style bread, but we were the first to add our signature garlic spread and freeze it for convenience.
Why are some of your frozen bread products shaped and sized differently? Our Texas Toasts are hearth-baked, which imparts a crunchy, chewy texture to the bread. This also means that each time they bake, they will create unique shapes and sizes. Can frozen products be microwaved? We strongly suggest that you do not.
- Since neither the bread nor the garlic spread are microwave-safe, the final product will be of very low quality.
- For the highest quality, we suggest conventional or toaster ovens.
- Consult the packaging for specific baking times.
