  • 1 loaf french bread
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter room temperature
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  • Line a baking sheet (that will fit into your freezer) with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Slice a loaf of french bread into about 1 to 1 1/4 inch pieces and place in a single layer onto prepared baking sheet.
  • In a bowl, add softened butter, minced garlic, salt, parsley, garlic powder, parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated.
  • Spread butter mixture evenly onto bread slices.
  • Place baking sheet into freezer for 1-2 hours or until bread is frozen solid. Transfer frozen bread into freezer safe bags or containers, or wrap in wax paper and foil.
  • To prepare: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place garlic bread slices onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes, or until golden brown around edges and lightly browned on top. Serve immediately.


  • Frozen garlic bread will keep in the freezer for up to six months, in a well sealed container.
  • I recommend buying fresh bread the day you intend to prepare your garlic bread for best results.
  • Using a serrated knife will help you slice your bread easily.
  • Test to make sure your baking sheet fits into your freezer before you start. If needed, use a smaller baking sheet and layer a piece of wax paper or parchment paper between multiple layers of garlic bread.
