Basil & BreadYou’ll never buy frozen garlic bread again!

This recipe is bursting with flavor and almost effortless to prepare.


  • Bread.  I love gluten-free Canyon House Bakery white bread but you can use whatever you’ve got lying around.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Chopped Fresh or Dried Basil
  • Chopped Fresh Garlic or Garlic Powder
  • Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or Pecorino Romano.  I use goat and not cow’s milk cheeses because they’re less acidic and gentle on my sensitive skin.
  • Salt and Pepper!


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place bread on pan.  Pick your oldest, darkest, tastiest pan for this recipe, you’ll get the best flavor.
  3. Drizzle olive oil over bread.
  4. Sprinkle the remaining ingredients atop. Croutons & BreadCloseUpCroutons
  5. Pop in oven for 5 minutes or until golden brown.

You can also use this same recipe for croutons, just chop your bread into 1/2 cubes and spread on the sheet. Bread & Pasta
