Somebody Help This Poor Girl: Garlic Bread in Dallas

Here’s a request you don’t see everyday. Hear her plea:

Nancy, I have a constant craving for garlic rolls. I’m am six months pregnant and I think about garlic bread all of the time. I would like to know your favorite places but what I am really looking for is a recipe so I can make my own. Neither my husband or I are very good at cooking but how hard can garlic bread be if we don’t make the bread. Maybe you’re readers can help.

Hit it, yáll.

  1. You can make garlic rolls using pizza dough. Almost all locally owned, non-chain, pizza places will gladly sell you a ball of dough. My husband makes the rolls into knots and brushes them with olive oil, a little salt, and garlic that has been smashed into a paste. Bake them in a 525 degree oven until golden brown. They are delicious.

  2. She should be able to smell the garlic rolls at Alfonso’s (Northcliff at Buckner) from virtually any corner of the city. Enjoy!

  3. The easiest and fastest recipe: Buy french bread at the store, cut into slices, coat with spreadable butter, sprinkle on garlic powder (and/or minced garlic) and some parmesan cheese. Put in oven and broil until starts to turn brown on the edges.

  4. Angelo’s in Lakewood has really good garlic rolls that come with warm marinara for dipping. Super yummy!

  5. Third Alphonso’s!

    But, all MUST try the unbelievable garlic bread at Amici Signature in Carrollton.
    It will blow you away! Ps, bring mints with you.
