  • 16 ounces soft French Bread
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted (read more about unsalted butter and using salted here)
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley minced (optional)


  • Cut the bread in half length wise.
  • Mix together the butter and garlic. Brush the mixture onto the cut bread, being sure to get all of the minced garlic evenly distributed on the bread.
  • Top with the fresh parsley if using.
  • Place on a rimmed baking sheet and put under a hot broiler for 2 minutes or until the bread is lightly toasted. Watch the bread closely to prevent it from burning. Cut and enjoy.
