Parmesan Garlic Toast

Garlic bread topped with Parmesan cheese.

Parmesan Garlic Toast

This is super delish! And, you can actually eliminate the Parmesan if you want - it's equally good without it. How 'bout we make some?

Here's what you'll need. Butter, garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt, minced onion, parsley and shredded Parmesan cheese.

Take 3 to 4 tablespoons of softened butter, more or less depending on how much bread you want to butter up, and put it in a small bowl. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt, minced onions, dried parsley.

Mix well.

Smear the butter mixture all over one side of the bread and stick it in the oven for about 10 minutes, until bread is heated through and butter is melted.

Remove from the oven, turn oven to broil. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top of the bread and once broiler is preheated, stick the bread under the broiler. Check in 5 to 10 second intervals until nicely browned and voila, yummy-yum.

If you think this sounds yummy, I'd sure it if you'd click to pin it, tweet it, stumble it, or share it on Facebook to help spread the word - thanks!


Recipe: Parmesan Garlic Toast

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Prep time: 10 min |Cook time: 12 min | Yield: About 4 to 6 servings

  • 3 to 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried minced onions
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 pound loaf of French bread, or your choice of bread, cut into slices
  • Parmesan cheese, to taste

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place the butter in a small bowl and add all of the seasonings. Mix together well and spread on one side of the bread slices. Place in the oven for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until butter has melted and bread is warmed through. Remove the bread from the oven and turn it up to broil.

Sprinkle the bread slices with Parmesan cheese and once the broiler is preheated, place the toast back under the broiler, at least 5 to 6 inches from the element. DO NOT LEAVE IT UNATTENDED! After just 10 seconds, check the bread. Turn the pan and put back under the broiler in 5 to 10 second intervals, or until it begins to brown. It will burn very easily, so don’t walk away and don’t get distracted with anything else right now. Be sure to check the bread every 5 to 10 seconds or so.

Cook's Notes: Soften butter to room temperature only. Do not melt. Also, I most always use unsalted butter in my cooking. It is just much easier to control the salt in a recipe. For this one, there is a lot of salt potential in the cheese and the seasoned salt so do use the unsalted butter, otherwise you may find your bread to be over salty!
