The perfect snack, appetizer, pick-me-up, or solution to your late-night cravings, this garlic bread is sure to get the party started. This tasty treat is actually much easier to make than you might have thought. Considering its impressive appearance and aroma, garlic bread is deceptively easy to make. For an extra cheesy delicacy, top off the seasoned bread slices with shredded mozzarella and parmesan before putting them into the oven. But beware — this garlic bread will have your friends begging for more so be prepared to make a second batch.

  • Step 5

    Remove slices from pan and let sit to cool for 1-3 minutes. I prefer to eat garlic bread while it's still warm, so I usually opt for max 2 minutes of cooling time. Munch away!
