I love a good roasted garlic butter spread. All the flavors just made my tummy so happy!
Beautiful roasted garlic, sharp parmesan cheese, fresh herbs, smooth butter, and a “secret” ingredient that just makes this garlic bread pure and utter perfection!
Did you know when you roast garlic it becomes almost sweet, nutty and mellow? No garlic breath when you eat this! Ha! It turns spreadable and almost creamy. Yum, Yum!
Secret Ingredient, you ask? Mayo! Nothing fancy but so simple and just makes this deliciousness all come together!
Not only is this Roasted Garlic Spread fantastic on bread but it is perfect layered on top of chicken breast, chicken thighs, and salmon. You should check out my Air Fryer Salmon recipe (you can also bake it in the oven). You will never want to eat salmon any other way!
This roasted garlic butter spread is just delicious on gluten free baguettes, bread, rolls, or any gluten free bread you can get your hands on! Your Italian meals and soups will never be the same again.
Take your ordinary grilled cheese and make it extraordinary. Slather a little Roasted Garlic Butter Spread and turn up the notch on those sandwiches. Makes those BLT sandwiches a little more exciting!
Roasted garlic in general is perfect for burgers, steak, and salad dressings. It will just turn your dish up a few notches in the flavor department.
I think you get the drift of all the wonderful ways we can use this butter spread. I mean the possibilities are endless. So let’s get this started!
Step by step instructions
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice just the top of a large garlic bulb. Place on parchment paper and aluminum foil. (I do not like the aluminum foil to touch my food). Drizzle with a teaspoon of olive oil.
- Wrap the garlic and place on a baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and open the garlic and set aside too cool. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees.
- In a glass bowl, combine butter, mayo, parmesan cheese, parsley, salt, and roasted garlic cloves
- Mix together. The roasted garlic will just break apart into small pieces as you stir the ingredients.
- Add parmesan cheese to the roasted garlic butter spread and combine real well.
- Spread the roasted garlic butter spread to your bread of choice! Be generous with your spread.
- Place the bread in the oven and toast for 20-25 minutes.
Tips for success
- When you remove the roasted garlic from the oven and it has a chance too cool, open the garlic. It will be soft and look golden brown. All you have to do is squeeze the garlic from the bottom into the bowl with the other ingredients. The garlic will literally just slip out.
- The roasted garlic will add a creaminess to your dish.
- You can store any leftovers in the fridge. It will last 7-10 days in the fridge.
- I love the Against the Grain baguettes when you need a quick and easy option. Most grocery stores carry this in the frozen food bread. section. We also take their hamburger buns and use them for garlic bread also.
