Roasted Garlic and Parmesan Bread
  • 3 bulbs garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (1 pound) loaf Italian bread
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Slice the tops off of the garlic bulbs so that the tip of each clove is exposed. Place the bulbs on a baking sheet, and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 30 minutes, or until garlic is soft.

Set the oven to broil. Slice the loaf of bread in half horizontally, and place cut side up on a baking sheet.
Squeeze the cloves of garlic from their skins into a medium bowl. Stir in the butter, parsley, and Parmesan cheese until well blended. Spread onto the cut sides of the bread.

Broil for about 5 minutes, until toasted.

**I found this recipe online the other day and adapted it to use a sub roll (to serve 2). I roasted 4 cloves of garlic covered with the olive oil for about 15 minutes. I then sliced the sub roll in half horizontally, and placed it cut side up on a baking sheet. Then, I squeezed the garlic from their skins into a bowl and stirred in 3 Tbsp. of melted butter, and 1 Tbsp. of fresh parsley(we like a lot of fresh parsley, you could cut this amount down to taste). Stirred that up and spread on the two halves of bread. I then sprinkled 1 Tbsp. of Parmesan on each half and sprinkled a dash of garlic powder (or garlic salt) on each half. Broiled for about 3-5 minutes. It was SO tasty, we had it two nights in a row! :)


  1. This sounds really good! I will try this for sure!

  2. Looks yummy, and not too many ingredients is a bonus.
