Servings 8 servings


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons minced fresh garlic
  • 1 large loaf sourdough bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup fresh ricotta cheese
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a large baking sheet with foil.
  • In a small saucepan set over medium-low heat, combine the butter, olive oil and minced garlic. Cook, stirring, until the butter is melted.
  • Add the cubed bread to a large bowl then pour the garlic butter mixture on top and toss thoroughly to combine. Scatter the bread cubes in a single layer on the lined baking sheet then bake for 10 minutes. Mix together the bread cubes on the baking sheet then bake them an additional 8 minutes or until golden brown and slightly crisped. 
  • Remove the bread from the oven and immediately sprinkle it with the Parmesan cheese, tossing it together on the baking sheet. Transfer the bread to a serving dish and top it with the ricotta and chopped parsley. Serve immediately. 

Kelly's Notes:

  • For an added touch of indulgence, drizzle the garlic bread with white truffle oil before serving.
