Italian culture is centered around the family gathering together and dining together and, undeniably, one of the most popular American-Italian dishes today is garlic bread. This simple dish requires just four ingredients. Next time you cook spaghetti (or any meal, really), impress friends and family with a side of fresh, made-from-scratch garlic bread.


1. The Bread

The bread is key. Don't use sliced sandwich bread from your grocery store bread aisle. Instead, visit your local bakery and pick up a large loaf of uncut French bread. The scrumptious, crisp crust and light, airy center make this style an excellent option for garlic bread. If you're cooking for a crowd, buy two — everyone loves this side dish.
