Truffle Garlic Bread

This truffle garlic bread recipe has become a staple in my kitchen and for good reason. It is perfect for weeknight dinners, hosting guests, or potluck contributions. Packed with savory flavors from fresh minced garlic, aromatic truffle, fragrant herbs, and a buttery base, it's sure to delight the taste buds. With its irresistible crispiness, it's guaranteed to be a hit with any crowd!

Indulging in homemade garlic bread is an experience like no other. Its soft, tender interior paired with a perfectly crisp exterior and mouth watering flavors make you want to do the happy dance. There's something incredibly comforting about it that warms you from the inside out! And when you add truffle into the equation it is a complete game changer, if you ask me! Its nutty, earthy, garlicky, floral notes are such a nice touch to this Italian-American classic.

When it comes to truffles, it's like a love-hate relationship, right? My hubby's all about truffle fries, but that's where he draws the line. Me? I'm all in for anything truffle! So, when I whipped up this recipe, I made sure it caters to everyone—whether you're a truffle fanatic or a bit on the fence. I added just the right amount of truffle goodness, so it's not too overpowering but still gives you that unmistakable flavor kick. With a mix of truffle oil and truffle salt, it's the perfect combo that'll leave you craving more. Trust me, when my hubby tried it, he was floored! And every time I serve it up, there's never a crumb left. So, take it from me, this recipe is the best of the best!

What Other Ingredients are Incorporated besides Truffle?

  • French Baguette: For this recipe, I exclusively use French baguettes from the Whole Foods bakery. It's the rustic, slender loaf with a lighter color and a dusting of flour. Its texture and flavor ensure consistently perfect garlic bread every time.
  • Butter: Ensure the butter is at room temperature—not melted or too cold. This allows for easy incorporation of the other ingredients into a spreadable consistency.
  • Minced Garlic: Freshly minced garlic is a must for optimal flavor. I've long abandoned pre-minced garlic jars, finding the flavor of freshly peeled and minced cloves far superior. Investing in a garlic mincer tool can simplify the process, and I've included a recommended option in my shop. Proper garlic storage is also crucial, so be sure to check out my recommendations.
  • Parsley: Fresh herbs are a delightful addition, providing both visual appeal and earthy flavor that compliments the truffle's earthy profile. As with garlic, I always recommend using fresh parsley rather than dried for the best results.

I adore this recipe so much not only for its flavor and appeal, but because it is also so easy to make, quick and it pairs well with just about anything and everything. Pastas, salads, cooked proteins and more!

Truffle Garlic Bread

This truffle garlic bread recipe has become a staple in my kitchen and for good reason. It is perfect for weeknight dinners, hosting guests, or potluck contributions. With its irresistible flavor, it's guaranteed to be a hit with any crowd!



  • 1 Baguette loaf (I source mine from the whole foods bakery)
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh garlic
  • 1-2 TBSP fresh parsley
  • 1/4 Cup butter (not melted, but at room temperature)
  • 3 TSP truffle oil
  • 1/4 TSP truffle salt
    1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
    2. Prepare a sheet pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray and wipe the entire surface with a paper towel to spread the spray out evenly.
    3. Cut your bread into 4” pieces, then cut them in half so you have a top and a bottom piece. Continue to do this until your loaf is fully cut. You should have about 15-20 pieces of garlic bread.
    4. Using a garlic crusher, press your garlic cloves until you have a total of ¼ cup filled. Set your minced garlic aside.
    5. Using a knife, finely mince your fresh parsley. Set aside.
    6. Make your butter mixture by combining your room temperature butter, fresh garlic, fresh parsley, truffle oil and truffle salt. Using a fork mix well until you have a smooth mixture.
    7. Using a rubber spatula, spread your truffle garlic butter mixture over each piece of cut bread and place on your prepared baking sheet.
    8. When your oven is preheated, bake the garlic bread at 400 for 8-10 minutes. Garlic bread should be a nice golden toasty color and butter should have melted into each piece.
    9. NOTE: depending on your oven, you might need to broil them for 2-3 minutes to get them crispy. But, they should crisp and toast from the baking alone.
    10. When done, remove from heat and let cool. Serve once cooled.
    11. ENJOY!
