Brennan's Garlic Bread

A copycat recipe from from the famous New Orleans restaurant, Brennan's. My family loves this bread. The secret is to rub the outside of the bread with fresh garlic.


  1. The secret to this wonderful tasting bread, is rubbing the outside of a loaf of bread with a piece of garlic that has been cut open lengthwise.
  2. Split loaf, and spread the melted butter over the cut sides. Sprinkle on the remaining ingredients. Finely chop the garlic cloves, and sprinkle those on top of the bread.
  3. Bake at 350ºF for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until nice and golden brown.

Delicious! Please forgive me because I embellished upon the recipe because I had used all the fresh garlic in my spaghetti sauce and meatballs, so I buttered the outside of the bread and then very lightly sprinkled with garlic powder. Also, I added about 1/3C of mozzarella over the parmesan because I've had bread made this way in restaurants and it's wonderful. Thank you for posting a great recipe!.

Delicious I used some wholemeal long rolls and the only thing I did differently was to take a tip of a chef friend was to melt the butter in a pot and slowly simmer it (at lowest possible setting) and infuse finely cut garlic into the butter and use that to spread over your cut bread (he used a similar recipe in his restaurant but without the cheese and would grill the bread on a ridged grill or flat plate but still important to rub it over with that garlic clove) and he would also make a large quantity, refrigerate it and just melt what he needed as required). At the end of the day this was delicious and went really well with Pumkpin Soup (Pmpkin Soup). Thank you lazyme, made for ZAAR Stars Tag Game.
