Garlic bread is an institution in the world of cuisine, universally adored as the ultimate crowd-pleaser that transcends meal boundaries. Whether paired with soups, curries, pasta, or even pizza, its irresistible combination of warm, buttery indulgence and aromatic garlic charm is an eternal favourite. The best part? You can never get tired of it, and it’s a versatile, make-ahead option> I like to prepare it in batches, freeze, and savour the deliciousness anytime.

This version of garlic bread has been tried, tested, and perfected to deliver a flavour punch that’s nothing short of spectacular. It boasts an abundance of herby, garlicky goodness that not only meets but exceeds every expectation. With each bite, you’ll experience the harmonious blend of aromatic herbs and rich garlic in perfect balance, making it an unparalleled, irresistible treat for your taste buds. Enjoy!
