Something a little different to garlic bread. These are delicious and a great accompaniment to most dishes. They are much quicker than making traditional garlic bread.

You’d be surprised that this uses less oil/butter than a lot of other garlic breads.
They just pull away from one another in bite size pieces. Great to share at BBQs! This makes about 20-25 pieces.

A delicious and lower fat alternative to garlic bread. Perfect to take along to a BBQ.



  • 375g bakers flour
  • 225g lukewarm water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon yeast
  • 1 teaspoon bread improver, optional


  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 50g grated cheese, parmasen or tasty works well
  • 50g olive oil



  1. Add the ingredients in this order: water, yeast, flour, improver and salt.
  2. Blitz on speed 7 for 10 seconds to roughly combine.
  3. Lock lid and use the kneading function for 6 mins.
  4. Remove dough and place into a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with cling film and place into a warm spot. I use the front seat of my car or a warmed oven.
  5. Leave this to rise for approximately an hour or until doubled.
  6. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  7. Place garlic into bowl.
  8. Blitz on speed 9 until fine. Scrape down.
  9. Add cheese and oil.
  10. Mix on speed 4 until just combined.
  11. Pour into a bowl.
  12. With your dough, roll it into small balls. Vary the size slightly – cherry tomato and golf ball size work well.
  13. Roll each ball into the olive oil mixture and place into an oven proof dish. No need to grease the dish at all. Place balls close together.
  14. Sprinkle any remaining cheese and garlic over the balls.
  15. Bake for 25-30 minutes until cooked through and golden on top. If they are doughy cook a little longer.


  • Bread improver is optional however will help ensure your loaf is nice and soft.
