This garlic butter bread recipe is super easy to do and tastes a LOT better than any garlic bread that you might purchase at your local market.

You can even make extra of the butter spread and keep it in the fridge to easily make garlic bread any time that you want it. I used fresh herbs. Dried work fine too, but they won’t give the same type of flavor that you will get from using the fresh variety.
