  • Step 9 – Then cut slices of bread and serve warm and enjoy! 

Recipe Tips:

  • Keep Bread Warm – Keep the bread wrap in the foil until ready to serve to keep it warm.  
  • Cut in different sizes – You can cut the bread in thick slices or think slices. When we are feeding a crowd, I cut in smaller sizes.

How do you keep Garlic Bread from getting soggy?

When spreading the garlic butter mixture on the loaf of bread, spread a thick layer on the bread. We try and make sure to focus on the edges of the bread since the crust will be getting crispy.

How to Store Garlic Bread:

When storing garlic bread it is recommended storing at room temperature. Storing in the refrigerator causes the bread to get stale and dry out quickly.

Our favorite way to store garlic bread, is in the freezer. Then when we want garlic bread, we thaw out and heat in the oven. It is as if you just made it.
