Cheesy garlic bread is a delicious and comforting side dish that pairs well with many meals. It’s easy to make and perfect for sharing. Here’s a simple recipe to make cheesy garlic bread:

Cheesy Garlic Bread Recipe


  • 1 loaf of French or Italian bread
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup (25g) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups (200g) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried parsley)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Optional: red pepper flakes, for a bit of heat


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the Bread:
    • Cut the loaf of bread in half lengthwise.
  3. Make the Garlic Butter:
    • In a medium bowl, combine the softened butter, minced garlic, grated Parmesan cheese, parsley, oregano (if using), salt, and black pepper. Mix until well combined.
  4. Spread the Garlic Butter:
    • Spread the garlic butter mixture evenly over the cut sides of the bread halves.
  5. Add the Cheese:
    • Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the buttered bread halves.
  6. Bake the Bread:
    • Place the bread halves on a baking sheet, cut side up.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Broil (Optional):
    • For a golden and crispy top, switch the oven to broil and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, keeping a close eye to prevent burning.
  8. Serve:
    • Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
    • Slice the bread into pieces and serve warm.


  • Bread Choice: Use a good quality French or Italian loaf for the best results. A crusty bread works well to hold the garlic butter and cheese.
  • Garlic: For a milder garlic flavor, you can sauté the minced garlic in a bit of butter before mixing it with the softened butter.
  • Cheese Variations: Feel free to mix in other cheeses like cheddar, Gruyere, or provolone for different flavor profiles.
  • Storage: Store any leftover cheesy garlic bread in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Reheat in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 10 minutes.

Enjoy your delicious cheesy garlic bread!
