First, don't let the times scare you away, you'll see it's not so hard. This is a recipe that I adapted from other garlic bread recipes; I wanted to try making my own garlic bread after realizing how bad the store-bought versions were.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). Wrap garlic in aluminum foil.

  • Bake garlic in the preheated oven until dark brown and softened, about 30 minutes. Remove garlic from the foil and let cool, about 7 minutes.

  • Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Arrange bread slices on a baking sheet.

  • Peel garlic into a bowl; mash with butter to form a chunky paste. Mix in mayonnaise. Spread garlic butter over the bread slices; top with tomato and Parmesan cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the bread has absorbed the garlic butter, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Warning! I am a garlic lover, but you can use less. Also, it goes great with sliced tomatoes on top!

4.20.18 Garlic really mellows out after it’s roasted, so be sure to you use a LARGE head of garlic, otherwise, you won’t get a lot of garlic flavor. I made this twice, the second time using a large bulb of garlic, and since I was serving with spaghetti and meatballs, I added some basil. Nice recipe. Read More
