When we go out to eat we always get some bread as a starter. But strangely enough, we never get garlic bread of any kind. If we are lucky we get some garlic butter on the side but for some reason, we never get crusty garlic bread.

If you try this recipe you will see that this is a missed opportunity because this recipe is easy, tasty, crunchy and delicious. With only three ingredients.

This garlic bread is of the kind that wants to keep around at all times. Prepare it, store it in the freezer and take it out when you get unexpected guests.

You can make your own baguette but allow me to share a secret. Make this garlic bread with pesto and the cheapest baguette you can find. Preferably a soft pre-baked French bread.

Opposed to the cheesy crack bread that required a crusty bread you now need a soft baguette. It will allow the ingredients to be absorbed by the bread and get a crunchy crust.

How to make garlic bread

To make this recipe the main ingredient is the pesto butter. Homemade pesto butter because you can make basil pesto or vegan arugula pesto in no time.

It also tastes better so why bother to buy this in the store. Take you unsalted butter out of the fridge so it can go a little soft and is workable.

Put about 3 to 4 tablespoons of butter in a small bowl. Work it with a spoon to get soft butter before you add a big tablespoon of homemade pesto.

Now combine the butter and fresh garlic until you get smooth garlic butter. Add some salt and pepper to taste. Preheat the oven at 450℉/200℃.

Take the soft baguette and cut it in thick slices of about 4 inches/ 2 cm slices but not all the way through. Then spread the garlic butter in between the sliced bread. Finish with some garlic butter on top.

Wrap the baguette with some tin foil and bake in the oven for 15 minutes on a baking sheet. Open the tin foil and let it back for a couple of minutes to get crunchy bread and golden brown.

Remove the foil and add some of the remaining butter mixture on the warm bread. Serve your homemade garlic bread immediately.

Garlic bread ingredient options
