It only takes a few minutes to mix it all together and it is perfectly toasted and the perfect addition to any meal.

Do I need to wrap my garlic bread in foil?

If you want your bread to not be as crispy on the outside you can wrap your bread in foil.  It will be more soft on the inside, just make sure the butter is completely melted inside.
