  • French bread or whole what bread

  1. Cut french bread into however many needed slices. Cut diagonally.

  4. Sprinkle a hint of ground black pepper.
  5. Add a thin slice of mozzarella cheese.
    Butter, garlic, black pepper, and mozzarella cheese
  6. Bake in toaster oven for about 5 minutes. I used the <Toast> option and i toasted it for about 4 squares worth. If you are using the traditional big oven, bake it at 350° for 30 mins.
  7. After it finishes, let it sit for about a minute or two in the toaster to golden up.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
    All done! Enjoy!

* Ive experimented with Sourdough. At first, there was a strange aftertaste that I could not pinpoint. However, I came to the realization that sourdough was SOUR! Duh! So therefore, sourdough was not a good fit for garlic bread, at least in my opinion. So I decided to try french bread and see if that makes a difference. Lo and behold, it made a difference! Since then, I’ve stuck with French bread for homemade garlic bread ever since!

Update: Recently, I’ve experimented with whole wheat bread and it works just the same as french bread.
