Homemade Garlic Bread - hands-down the easiest and tastiest homemade garlic bread that comes ready in just 20-minutes. A classic side dish that's perfect with everything. Better than your usual store-bought garlic bread!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and lightly grease with baking spray. Set aside.
Using a bread knife, slice bread vertically into 1 inch thick slices, not cutting all the way through, stop just before you reach the bottom of the crust, (about 1/2 inch from the bottom).
Use a pastry brush to spread an even coating of butter mixture on the top of bread and on both sides of the bread slices. Be generous, and if there is any leftover butter, refrigerate in an airtight container. If using cheese, sprinkle some over the butter mixture in between each slice of bread.
Wrap loaf of bread completely in aluminum foil, place wrapped bread on baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
Open the top of the foil and bake another 5 minutes to let the top of the bread toast a little.
