What’s the secret to good garlic bread? Garlic. Fresh Garlic. This is coming from a girl who likes to buy a tub of peeled garlic, grind it in the food processor to turn it into a garlic paste and freeze to use all month long. I love using my batch of frozen garlic paste in all my cooking…it’s pretty much a main feature ingredient around my house. But, when it comes getting that rich and robust garlic taste, it’s gotta be fresh. I use minced fresh garlic and mix it with high quality olive oil and fresh herbs. It’s only a few ingredients so their freshness really comes through! Seriously…the best garlic bread you’ll ever eat!

I used sourdough this time, but you can also use french bread or ciabatta or any bread you like. And you can slice them however you’d like. I went a little un-conventional garlic bread slicing this time…look at me, living on the wild side 😉

You can puree the garlic sauce in a blender for a smooth and even texture, but I just left it chunky and spread it on the bread very generously.

Then I sprinkled some grated Parmesan cheese. You can omit this part if you’re not feeling cheesy.
