Eat while fresh and hot

There’s something truly magical about freshly made bread, especially when it’s loaded with savory garlic and gooey cheese. To fully appreciate the flavors and textures of our garlic bread, it’s best enjoyed while it’s still warm and fragrant.

After the bread has gone stale, you can warm it up again but still it won’t be as good as the fresh thing.

Recipe Modifications

Bread Swap
Instead of using traditional crusty artisan bread, experiment with different bread varieties like sourdough or multigrain for added texture and flavor.
Boost the Veggie Content
Add extra veggies to the garlic-herb mixture for a nutritional punch. Finely chopped spinach, roasted red peppers, or diced tomatoes are great options. Not only do they add vitamins and minerals, but they also bring vibrant colors and fresh flavors to the dish.
Lighten Up on the Cheese
While cheese adds creamy richness to the dish, you can reduce the amount or opt for a lighter cheese option. Consider using part-skim mozzarella or a blend of reduced-fat cheeses to cut down on saturated fats while still enjoying that cheesy goodness.
Use Herbs and Spices Liberally
Enhance the flavor profile of your garlic bread by experimenting with various herbs and spices. Fresh basil, oregano, thyme, or rosemary can elevate the taste without adding extra calories or sodium. Get creative and tailor the seasoning to your taste preferences!
Swap Olive Oil for Avocado Oil
While olive oil is a healthy fat, avocado oil offers similar health benefits with a higher smoke point, making it ideal for baking. Brush the avocado oil mixture onto the bread for a golden crust and a dose of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.
