Quick and Easy Late-Night Snack: Cheesy Garlic Bread Bites


  • 4 slices of bread (white, whole wheat, or your choice)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the Bread:
    • Trim the crusts off the bread slices, if desired, for a more bite-sized snack. Then, cut each slice into bite-sized cubes or shapes of your choice.
  3. Make the Garlic Butter:
    • In a small bowl, combine the softened butter and minced garlic. Mix until the garlic is evenly distributed throughout the butter. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  4. Coat the Bread:
    • Take each bread cube and generously spread the garlic butter mixture on all sides. You can use a pastry brush for an even application.
  5. Add Cheese Topping:
    • In another small bowl, mix together the shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese. Roll each buttered bread cube in the cheese mixture to coat it.
  6. Arrange on Baking Sheet:
    • Place the cheese-coated bread cubes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Leave some space between each piece.
  7. Bake in the Oven:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for about 8-10 minutes or until the bread bites are golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  8. Garnish (Optional):
    • If you like, sprinkle the freshly chopped parsley over the hot cheesy garlic bread bites for a pop of color and flavor.
  9. Serve Warm:
    • Remove from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving. Enjoy your delicious and satisfying late-night snack!
