A great thing about garlic bread is that you don’t need to be exceptionally skilled in the kitchen to make it. However, it helps if you know some tips that will make the dish taste better. Continue reading to find some of them below.

Pick the Right Bread

It all starts and ends with the bread. While you can use any bread you have, picking out the right one will ensure that you have the tastiest garlic bread possible. Your best bet is a French baguette or some other type of bread that is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Use Unsalted Butter

By using unsalted butter, you will be able to control the saltiness level of the garlic bread more easily. You also minimize the risk of going overboard with salt and ruining the dish.

Opt for Fresh Garlic

Using garlic substitutes or pre-minced garlic from the grocery store may seem tempting at first, but you should resist the urge. Opting for fresh garlic will do wonders for the taste of garlic bread. The comparison won’t even be close.

Be Careful With the Baking Time

Leave the garlic bread just a little longer in the baking oven, and you are risking eating a burnt piece of bread with hints of garlic. Adjust the baking time to the type of bread you are using and watch it carefully so you can take it out as soon as you notice it is beginning to burn.
