There's just something to be said about garlic bread...the smell, the crunch, the taste...the comfort.  It is perfect for sopping up sauces, soups or serving as a side to any dish.  This garlic bread recipe is a winner, hands down and is definitely deserving of the title, Best Darn Garlic Bread Recipe!

What is the secret ingredient in our Best Darn Garlic Bread Recipe? It is Cherchies® Garlic Seasoning Blend, one of our oldest, most requested seasoning blends since 1980, and my all-purpose seasoning for most of my dishes, especially Garlic Bread!  Here is what our friends from across the country have said about Cherchies® Garlic Seasoning...

"I have been in love with this seasoning since 2012. I discovered the garlic Seasoning at the Pecan Store in Alabama. Other than eggs, I only use this seasoning with pepper... It makes beans, vegetables, and soups delicious. There is no greater garlic combination of flavoring".  LaRonda from Missouri

"My sister in law & I were " turned on" to this spice about 22 years ago...we use it in a ton of our cooking. It always must be in our kitchen and when company pops in - it is our dip of choice. It goes on meat, potatoes & veggies". LOVE CHERCHIES. Marianne from Connecticut

Awww, we love you too!  Thank you!

This recipe is super easy!  For this recipe, I used Ciabatta rolls in lieu of Italian bread because I love the nooks and crannies and wanted to experiment.  I often change the bread, sometimes I substitute the butter for Olive oil, and sometimes depending on my mood may add cheese to the garlic bread, but I always use Cherchies® Garlic Seasoning, a staple in our kitchen and one that should be in yours too.  

Try it and let us know what you think!  Thank you for stopping by:)


  • 1 Ciabatta rolls, sliced in half (feel free to use your favorite Italian bread or baguette)
  • Room-temperature butter (about 1 1/2 Tbsp. per slice, but who's measuring, go on and slather)
  • Cherchies® Garlic Seasoning Blend or try our Cherchies® No-Salt Garlic'n Herbs Seasoning Blend


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Slice the rolls or bread in half lengthwise and place on a baking sheet. Spread butter over the bread and sprinkle with a generous amount of Cherchies® Garlic Seasoning (maybe 1 Tablespoon or so, once again not measuring).  I would evenly coat the bread with a light dusting of Cherchies® Garlic Seasoning.  You can always add more when you go to taste the garlic bread.

Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes or until bread is lightly golden brown.  You want that nice crunch when you first bite into the garlic bread as well as the soft buttery garlicky bread inside.  Remove the tray from the oven and cut the rolls in half or the bread into 2-inch slices and serve immediately.  Enjoy!
