Recipe FAQs

How do you store homemade garlic bread seasoning?

Refrigerate your garlic bread spice mix in an airtight container until the powdered parmesan cheese has reached its expiration date, which should be found on the cheese package.

What bread is best for garlic bread?

A thick baguette of French bread is ideal. You want bread that will be toasty on the outside but soft on the inside.

Can you freeze garlic bread?

Yes! Mix the seasoning with softened butter and spread it on your sliced bread. Wrap it in foil and then plastic wrap and freeze until you’re ready to use. Take off the plastic wrap, but keep the foil on the bread while you warm it in the oven.
