There are, however, more than a few ways to garlic-butter bread, so we thought we’d gather a few of our favourite recipes for you to test out yourself.
The best garlic bread recipes to try at home
Perfect Homemade Garlic Bread
Let’s start with the basics, how do you make decent classic garlic bread at home?
Jake Cohen’s recipe might be the best answer we’ve found. His secret is to use a metric tonne of garlic. By baking the cloves in the oven you can then easily squeeze the garlic into a paste and mix it with herbs, butter, and red pepper. The result is the most delicious and crunchy-looking garlic bread on this side of the internet.
Shallot Garlic Bread
This recipe from @butt.erhand has recently gone viral on TikTok, and for good reason. The combination of shallots, butter, cheese, honey, chilli and herbs makes for a crunchy, cheesy, delight. The garlic bread to end all garlic breads, in our opinion.
Truffle Garlic Bread
Truffle and garlic are two flavours I wholeheartedly believe belong together, and the folks over at TRUFF answered all our prayers with a recipe for truffle-infused garlic bread.
Essentially, using garlic cloves, butter, parmesan and some TRUFF oil, you can make yourself a fancy and tasty side of garlic bread.
Pizza Garlic Bread
This one is a tad more unconventional, some might even say daring, but it looks delicious nonetheless.
The idea for this recipe from @thisisplanetfood on TikTok is to combine two of the world’s best foods – pizza and garlic bread – into one. Essentially you can use any garlic bread loaf (perhaps one you’ve made from a recipe on this list) and then top it with sauce and pizza ingredients to create pizza garlic bread. Yum.
There you have four of the most interesting and best ways to make garlic bread at home, so why not get experimental this winter? If you have another recipe you swear by, feel free to drop it in the comments for other garlic bread fans to try.
