My mom made this garlic bread when I was a kid whenever we had Italian food. I think I liked it more than the main dish.

I’m still making this dish and I love it just as much now as I did back then. There are lots of versions of garlic breads out there and sometimes I mix it up, but this one is by far the quickest and tastiest version.

I always keep Italian bread in my freezer. It’s great for this garlic bread and I use it for french toast.

If you need a quick garlic bread that can be made in 20 minutes then this is the one for you.

What’s your favorite garlic bread?
