Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

  • 1 loaf - long extra sour dough bread
  • 1/2 cup 1 cube - butter
  • 6 cloves - garlic cloves peeled
  • to taste about 1/2 tsp - garlic salt
  • 2 pieces - aluminum foil

Cut  loaf of french bread in half.

Butter each half of bread. Don't be sparing with the butter.

Slice the 6 peeled cloves of  garlic as thinly as possible.

Distribute the sliced garlic evenly over the bread.

Sprinkle  both halves of the bread with garlic salt.

Wrap each half in a piece of aluminum foil that is long enough for the bread.

Place bread, in foil, on barbeque.

Turn every 5 minutes till done. Usually it takes about 15 or 20 minutes.


This garlic bread can also be baked in a 400 degree oven. It is better to sautee the garlic in butter before you put it on the buttered bread, if you wish to bake it, instead of barbequeing it.
