Making Dallas Even Better

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.

    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.

    Depends on what side of the metroplex you are on. I would suggest Sicillianos in Garland.
    http://www.sicilianosgarland.com/. They bring garlic rolls to the table with your food and don’t stop until you beg them to :-)

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

    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.

    Siciliano’s. http://www.sicilianosgarland.com/ Don’t let the fact the location looks like a fancy funeral home on the outside scare you. The garlic rolls are addictive.

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

    2nd Alfonso’s but the garlic bread at Bugatti’s is ridiculously good.

  • Steven F

    I agree on both Alfonsos and Bugatti also Cremonas is pretty good!

    Campisi’s Egyptian Room on Mockingbird. Awesome.

    not proud of this guilty pleasure, but Little Caesars crazy bread.

    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.
