Garlic bread is one of life’s most glorious things … but this mushroom garlic bread recipe just takes it up to the next level.

The recipe serves 4 – 6.


  • 1 large baguette
  • 115 g butter, softened
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely grated
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 Tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 60 g Parmesan, grated
  • 250 g portabellini mushrooms, sliced
  • Fresh thyme leaves for serving
  • Olive oil, for cooking
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the grill to medium heat.
  2. Cut the baguette in half lengthwise. Toast baguette halves cut side down until lightly golden brown. Remove.
  3. Combine butter, garlic, oregano and a good amount of salt and pepper in a small bowl. Mix well.
  4. Spread evenly over the bread.
  5. Sprinkle bread with half of the Parmesan.
  6. Heat a frying pan on high heat (or a cast iron pan on the grill). Add a drizzle of olive oil and cook the mushrooms until tender and golden. Season well.
  7. Spread mushrooms all over the bread and finish with the rest of the parmesan.
  8. Return the bread to the grill and close the lid. Cook until the cheese and garlic butter mixture melt into the bread and the outside is crisp. (If you don’t have a grill with a lid, wrap the garlic mushroom bread in tinfoil.)
  9. Serve straight off the grill, sprinkle with thyme leaves, and cut into chunky wedges.
