Now that you know what you’ll need to pick up at the store, let’s look at how this recipe comes together. First, heat your oven to 400 degrees. Bring out a small bowl, and in it, mix together the garlic, butter, Parmesan, and parsley. Mix it up, and then add salt and pepper.

Next, cut slits into the baguette, making sure you go down far enough. Now, take that butter mixture and work it over the top of the bread, making sure it gets into those cracks.

Put your bread in foil, and pop it in the oven for 15 minutes. If you want to add cheese, cut it into thin slices and place it in the cuts. Then, put the bread back in the oven for about five minutes to allow all that cheese to melt.

After that, you’re all done! Allow your bread to cool, and then serve with whatever you’re making for dinner. Your family is sure to go crazy over this homemade and extremely delicious garlic bread.
