This Quick Parmesan Garlic Bread is super-easy, better than store-bought, and a great way to use up leftover bread or rolls!
This recipe came about because I had leftover hotdog and hamburger rolls. No one was eating them, but I didn’t want them to go to waste. I was thinking about serving garlic bread with my Ravioli Spinach Bake one evening, and realized that I had forgotten to buy the frozen garlic loaves at the grocery store, like I usually do. So I decided to try to make my own with the leftover rolls!
They turned out to be delicious and even better than the store-bought version. I have always avoided making my own garlic bread because it seemed like it would be a pain, but this recipe only calls for ingredients that I already have hanging around the house, and it takes about 15 minutes from start to finish. I can make this to use up rolls or bread, or if I am feeling fancy and had the wherewithal to plan ahead, I can use bakery rolls, which I have done and they turn out amazing.
The recipe says to bake these in the oven, but I have also used the toaster oven, and both worked well. So if you are using your oven for something else, the toaster oven is definitely an option!
- 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon dried basil
- ¼ teaspoon dried parsley
- 2 tablespoons butter or buttery spread
- 4 leftover rolls or pieces of bread
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- In a small bowl, combine the Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, basil, and parsley.
- Spread each of the rolls with about ½ tablespoon butter and place on a baking sheet.
- Sprinkle a generous ½ teaspoon of the cheese mixture onto each roll.
- Place in the over and bake about 10 minutes, until golden and crispy.
