Garlic bread is a popular dish in which bread is topped with a mixture of butter, garlic, and herbs, and then toasted or grilled. The bread can be sliced from a baguette, a loaf of Italian bread, or a sourdough bread. The butter mixture can include minced garlic, parsley, thyme, basil, and other herbs, as well as salt and pepper to taste. The bread is then toasted or grilled until it is golden brown and crispy. Garlic bread is often served as a side dish with pasta, pizza, or other Italian dishes. It can also be enjoyed as a snack or an appetizer.
