Tuke's Garlic Bread Recipe

Hey Guys,

So I decided to learn how to make Garlic Bread when I ate at Smokey Bones and the Garlic Bread there was made from regular Sliced Bread. I was extremely disappointed with the Garlic Bread I ordered from The Secret Garden in Abuja (pictures here), that's why I decided to share this quick and easy recipe.
The picture at the top is from a Restaurant, the one below is homemade

So, my favourite type of Bread is sold at Audrey's Cakes and Bakes and it costs N250 for 9 buns. It's the same Bun from my S cubed post and my Tuna Sandwich Recipe. However, you can use any bread you deem fit.

Ingredients Needed


Three Crucial Ingredients - Garlic, Butter & Parsley
Extras- Nutmeg
Technique - Melt the Butter in the Microwave for about 20 seconds

Add your chopped Parsley

Mince 1 or 2 cloves of garlic depending on how strong you want it

I usually use 1

Mix it all together and add a light dash of Nutmeg, a sprinkle of Cinamon & A pinch of Brown Sugar for a nice twist to your regular Garlic Bread.
Slice the bread in 2 or into small manageable chunks
Spread the mix on it
Make sure you spread it evenly o

Pop it in the oven until golden brown (5-10 minutes depending on your oven)

Have you made Garlic Bread before? What did you do differently? Will you try out this recipe? Tag me in pictures if you do :)

P.S. I put up my First Natural Hair Video, creating a 2 minute updo, watch it here.


  1. I use olive oil instead of butter. And since I use regular sliced bread, I let it brown in a warm frying pan.

  2. Lol that Garlic Bread from the restaurant just killed me sha. I'm going to try that recipe tomorrow but as I don't have access to Agege Bread (because, #struggs) I'm guessing I can use a Brioche loaf instead?

    Btw, your Food Photography skills are amazing Detuke. Well done.

    1. Loool, don't mind them! Lool, yes you can, I'm sure it'll come out really sweet. You can try using Sliced Bread too! Awww, Thank you Felix, Food Photography is my Favourite type of Photography, I'm glad you noticed!!

  3. Thanks for the recipe, am so making this for my Sugarboo. she deserves it.

    1. Awwww, You're sooo sweet, you're sugarboo will enjoy it, hehe :)

  4. Omg, it looks so yummy :O


  5. nice idea. i'll try melting this garlic thingie into my French Toast next time. only just started eating butter/margarine again but can't imagine consuming the large quantities...the olive oil idea is good too. and beautiful pictures.

  6. I'm definitely trying this recipe! Nice photography skills Tuke

    1. Yayyyy, let me know how it goes o, Thank you!

  7. O girl one of my big sister's in church taught me how to make garlic bread! When I found out how easy it was I just always wanted to make some lool. I have not tried it with nutmeg or cinnamon I may need to give it a go! Thanks for posting :D

    1. Loool, me too, I probably had a garlic bread making spree when I discovered this recipe :)
      You're welcome :)

  8. The pictures are beautiful!
    I love garlic bread so I'm definitely going to try this. Can it be done without parsley? Or is there a more accessible alternative to parsley?
    Nigerian and Natural

    1. Thanks Jen :D
      It can be done without parsley but I think Parsley is the icing on top of the garlic bread, I love the way it smells too!
      Check out the Herb Substitution table on this link http://homecooking.about.com/library/weekly/blherbsub.htmhttp://homecooking.about.com/library/weekly/blherbsub.htm
      I think Parsley is pretty accessible o, and I didn't even use up to N50 worth of it

  9. salty garlic bread is even better

    1. Really, never tried salty garlic bread before, sounds interesting
