Better-Than-Dominos Garlic Bread

Recipe video above. Nothing beats homemade garlic bread!! Takeout will never taste as good because the garlic is not fresh so the preservatives give it a sour flavour. For the ultimate Garlic Bread experience, skip the fancy artisan bread and use an economical French stick / baguette with a softish thin crust instead.

  • 1 French stick / baguette , ~ 60cm / 2ft long (Note 1)
  • 125 g / 1 US stick unsalted butter , softened
  • 2 tsp fresh garlic , minced (~3 - 4 cloves, pack the teaspoon)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp finely chopped parsley (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 200C/390F.
  • Cut the French stick in half. Then cut the bread almost all the way through into 2cm / 4/5" thick slices.
  • Mix together the butter, garlic, salt and parsley. Taste to see if it's salty / garlicky enough for your taste (Note 2).
  • Smear garlic butter over cut side of bread (Note 2).
  • Smear remaining butter on the top and sides of the bread.
  • Wrap each bread in foil.
  • Bake for 15 minutes until the crust is crispy (check through foil).
  • Unwrap and serve!


1. Bread - You can make Garlic Bread with any bread you choose. But for a Dominos/Pizza Hut copycat (my favourite!), use a basic bakery French stick / baguette.
French Sticks (baguettes) in Australia is usually around 60 cm / 2 ft long with a diameter of 7 - 9 cm / 2.7 - 3.5".
2. Garlic flavour will reduce slightly once cooked, it's harsh when raw
3. Nutrition per serving.
