Make this frozen garlic bread recipe at home for a fast side dish. Skip the packaging and the weird ingredients that comes with ready made Texas Toast; make your own!
If you really want to make it from scratch, use a loaf of this homemade sandwich bread.
The freezer section of the grocery store has everything you could possibly want: Frozen waffles, frozen veggies, frozen whipped cream, frozen pies, and frozen garlic bread, aka Texas Toast.
The sheer convenience makes purchasing these things appealing. But when you count all the wasted packaging, the carbon footprint, and the addition of all the weird ingredients lurking in these supermarket frozen foods… well, it begins to not seem so appealing after all.
Homemade waffles are incredibly easy to make and can be frozen for later use. You can harvest your own veggies at the peak of ripeness and freeze them yourself in reusable bags or containers. Heck, even homemade whipped cream and pies are super easy to make — all of which you can freeze.
And frozen garlic bread, aka Texas Toast? Have you taken a look at the ingredients found on the ingredient label? Holy GMO and preservatives Batman!
You’re probably already making homemade bread so why not take the extra step by adding butter, garlic, and seasonings, then freezing the bread for later use?
DIY frozen garlic bread aka Texas Toast

This recipe for frozen garlic bread calls for spreading sliced of fresh bread with a mixture of butter, garlic, parmesan cheese, and seasonings to make individual servings. There’s no reason you can’t use this same spread to make garlic bread by the loaf. Simply cut a loaf of French bread in half lengthwise and slather each cut side with the buttery mix. Run it under the broiler, just as you would the individual slices.

DIY Ready-to-Heat Frozen Garlic Bread
You're probably already making homemade bread so why not take the extra step by adding butter, garlic, and seasonings, then freezing the bread for later use?
In a bowl, mix together all ingredients except sliced bread. Spread generously on one side of your bread, placing slices on a baking sheet that will fit in your freezer.
Freeze for 20-25 minutes or until the bread has completely frozen. Place individual slices of bread in a freezer-safe storage container.
When you are ready to use your garlic toast, place each piece on a slotted broiler pan. Turn the oven to broil and place under the broiler for 3-5 minutes. DO NOT walk away or you will burn your toast. If you want, flip the garlic toast to make the other side crunchy.
