Homemade garlic bread

One of the things we love to do is make our own garlic bread and freeze it. I never thought about posting how to freeze garlic bread until my friend was shocked that I did it. Her response… “I never thought about that”. So my post is here!

If you buy garlic bread or cheesy bread at the store, it is really expensive! I mean if you think about it you are pay $2-$4 a box for frozen bread with some butter, garlic, and cheese on it. That is it!

How do you make garlic bread from scratch?

Instead of paying that… make your own and stock up! It is very easy and you will save a ton of money. Keep reading to see just how easy it is!

If you have a large family like I do, one box of garlic bread is never enough. We normally need a couple of boxes and that really adds up.

I think this homemade version tastes better and we save money too. It is a win all around. ๐Ÿ™‚

How Freezing this easy homemade garlic bread saves you money:

Now making your own garlic bread is going to save you a ton of money, but if you want to save an amazing amount of money then look for the discounted “old” bread. At our local grocery store, there is always a rack or a grocery cart filled with discounted bread from their bakery.

I can get a loaf of French bread for only $.75 instead of $2-$3. They mark it down because the “fresh” date is just a day or two away. However, the bread is still great.

Since we are making it in bulk and freezing it, we don’t care how “fresh” it is. You can also check your local bread “thrift stores” too to save on the bread.

You can also think outside the box, we have made garlic bread out of leftover hotdog buns and leftover hamburger buns.

So next time you want some garlic bread make a big batch and freeze some too. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is one of our favorite garlic bread recipes. You can use minced garlic, fresh garlic or even garlic powder. Just use what you have!

You can omit the grated parmesan if you don’t have any or just want to skip it. We have even used other types of cheese when we didn’t have Parmesan on hand.

I am all about using what is on sale at the grocery store or that I already have in the freezer. I cut our grocery bill by 50% off by following these 8 Tips for for Saving Money on Groceries by Menu Planning!

Save that money for something else or to give you family wiggle room in the budget.

  1. We reheat it in the oven, just like we normally would – about 400 degrees for just a few minutes.

  2. Olivia, no need to thaw. It went straight from the freezer to the oven which makes life even easier.

  3. Did you know you can buy a loaf of “day old bread” at Jimmy Johns for 50 cents?? That’s the best for garlic bread, too.

  4. I bought garlic bread at the grocery store and already has the butter and the garlic on it. Can I freeze it like that? Or do I need to cook it first, and then freeze it?

  5. 5 stars
    What a money saving recipe. And so much better than store bought French bread. Plus you can add whatever seasoning your family like. My husband loves everything hot and spicy. Like Me!

  6. I really like the idea and the concept. Has worked out great for me. I’m still playing with the reheating aspect.

  7. 5 stars
    I really like the concept of the idea. Has worked out very well for me here. I’m still playing with the reheat time.

  8. 5 stars
    We make this all the time. I recently froze it and this is much better than having left overs and reheating. Simple and delicious as well as a money saver! Thanks for all the wonderful recipes on here. If I’m using some, I’ll cook for the 3 minutes and pull out what I need and heat for another 5 minutes. From the freezer I cook the same. Tastes perfect all the time!
