Homemade garlic bread with parsley is a delicious and simple side dish that can elevate any meal. This classic bread is a favorite appetizer and is easy to make at home.

A good quality bread is essential for the best results. Fresh bread is the best choice for garlic bread, but if you're using a day-old loaf, it's best to toast it slightly before adding the garlic butter. The garlic butter is what gives this bread its distinctive flavor. It's made by combining softened butter, garlic, and fresh parsley. The butter should be at room temperature so that it's easy to mix. You can use fresh garlic or garlic powder, depending on your preference.When it comes to serving the garlic bread, it's best to slice it all the way through and serve it immediately while it's still hot and crispy. You can serve it as a side dish or even as an appetizer. It pairs well with pasta dishes, soups, or salads. If you're looking to add some extra flavor to the garlic bread, you can sprinkle some grated Parmesan cheese over the slices before baking.

- Don’t skimp on the butter: The butter is what makes the garlic bread so deliciously rich and decadent, so don’t be afraid to use a generous amount. You can always use a bit less if you prefer, but don’t go too light on the butter or the bread may turn out dry and lackluster.
