No Italian-American meal seems complete unless there’s a basket of garlic bread on the table. A simple mixture of butter, garlic, parsley, Parmesan, and salt is spread onto Italian or French bread, then the bread is baked until toasted and crispy. This comforting favorite is a classic companion to Spaghetti and Meatballs or Pasta Fagioli soup, but it would also be great alongside Chowhound’s Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf Muffins.


  1. 1Preheat the oven to 375°F. Cut the loaf of bread in half horizontally and lay the bread, cut sides up, on a broiler or baking pan (if the bread is long, cut it in half crosswise, then split the loaf horizontally). In a bowl, stir together the butter, garlic, and parsley. Spread the cut sides of the bread thickly with the garlic butter.
  2. 2Bake until warmed through, about 10 minutes.
  3. 3Preheat the broiler and position a rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Sprinkle with the Parmesan. Return the bread to the oven under the broiler and broil just until crisp and toasted, 1 to 2 minutes (watch carefully!). Serve right away.
