Chef Howard Hanna of The Rieger in Kansas City doesn't over-complicate garlic bread. It's buttery, lightly herby and very addictive.




  • Preheat oven to 350°. Place butter in a small microwave-safe bowl; melt in microwave. Grate or press garlic into butter; stir to combine.

  • With a serrated knife, split bread loaf in half horizontally. Brush both halves with butter mixture. Season lightly with salt and pepper and sprinkle with parsley.

  • Put bread halves back together and wrap in foil. Place on a baking sheet and bake until warmed through and slightly crisped, 10 to 15 minutes. Cut into 1-inch slices and serve warm.
