Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 13 minutes
Total Time 18 minutes
Servings 12 slices


  • 1 12-inch loaf of crusty bread
  • 1/4 cup softened butter (1/2 stick)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, loosely packed and minced


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Slice the bread loaf in half lengthwise.
  • In a small bowl, add the softened butter, minced garlic, and minced parsley. Stir together to combine.
  • Spread the butter mixture over both halves of the bread and then set them on a broiler-safe baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • After baking for 10 minutes, switch the oven to broil (Mine was set to 525°F) and broil for about 3 minutes or until the top edges of the bread become toasty brown. Keep an eye on it while it broils so it doesn't burn!
