Garlic bread is my Achilles’ heel. There used to be this seafood restaurant that would serve complimentary garlic bread, and it was soaked in butter but it was sooo good. I mean, who doesn’t love complimentary garlic bread? However, the restaurant switched owners later on, and the food just isn’t the same. Tragic, right? I hate when that happens.
On another note, garlic bread thankfully isn’t something you need to order in a restaurant. It’s one of the most simple things you can make at home. This cheesy miso garlic bread is perfectly buttery, garlicky, and packed with umami flavor. It’s extremely addictive, and you’ll likely find yourself reaching for a second (or third!) piece. Don’t worry though, it’s 100% worth the carbs.
tips for success:
- Use softened butter – Softened butter will make it much easier to mix together with the garlic and miso paste. If you forget to leave out the butter ahead of time, just microwave it until soft!
- Baking for a crowd – If you are making this for a party or family gathering, I would highly suggest doubling the recipe and using a whole baguette. This recipe only serves 3-4 people.
- Keep an eye on the bread in the oven! – You want to hit that sweet spot, where it´s crisp on the edges but still soft in the middle. After 6 minutes, just keep watching it until your desired level of well-doneness.
Looking for another savory baked good? Look no further than my buttered miso garlic soft pretzels! They’re chewy, savory, and way easier to make than you’d think!
