Crispy homemade garlic bread with oven roasted garlic, fresh herbs, and a dusting of parmesan




  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Cut 1/4 of the head of garlic on top to expose cloves slightly and peel some of the excess clove skin off. Using a sheet of foil, place garlic head inside, pour 1 tbsp of olive oil over the exposed bulbs and season with fresh ground pepper. Wrap the garlic in the aluminum foil and place in the oven. Roast for 20-30min until the clove can be easily pierced with a fork and slightly browned.
  3. While the garlic roasts, in a small bowl place the butter, red pepper flakes, parmesan cheese, and olive oil together. Once the garlic is done roasting, remove from the oven (caution hot) and squeeze the head to remove the garlic cloves into the bowl with the ingredients above. (I use tongs to squeeze the bulbs out since it is hot to handle with your hands).
  4. Mix all the ingredients together and spread onto your bread. Place bread in the oven on low broil until the edges are crispy, about 5 minutes, or until desired crispiness. Remove from the oven and top with freshly chopped parsley.
