Favorite Garlic Toast – Super EASY!


Buttery, garlicky, delicious garlic toast with crisp edges, soft & chewy centers. My favorite garlic toast recipe is an easy side dish to serve with pasta, soups and so much more!



Tools Needed

  • Garlic peeler
  • Silicone basting brush
  • Bread knife
  • Baking sheet


  • ½ French baguette or Italian bread (1 foot needed)
  • 23 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 23 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil – I used 2 tablespoons
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, or salt to taste

Optional Topping

  • a light sprinkling of garlic salt or coarse sea salt on each round
  • chopped parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a medium or large baking sheet with lightly greased foil.
  2. Slice baguette into 10-14 rounds. Lay baguette rounds onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Peel garlic, then mince. Add minced garlic, olive oil, and salt to taste into a small mixing bowl. Whisk until well mixed.
  4. Using a silicone basting brush, brush the garlic oil mixture onto each baguette round, ensuring minced garlic gets on every piece. Then, use a spoon or fork to scoop up any last bits of garlic.
  5. Bake for 5-8 minutes (I did 8 for golden brown edges), until golden at the edges and fragrant.
  6. Sprinkle with garlic salt and chopped parsley. Enjoy!
  7. For an extra garlicky delight, serve with this super tasty garlic confit.
