Amazing Crispy Garlic Bread – NO OVEN | With & Without Cheese

I´m a huge fan of garlic bread, and this No Oven Crispy Garlic Bread is probably my favorite way of enjoying this classic appetizer. We´re talking super easy to make, just a handful of ingredients and all done within minutes.

No Oven Crispy Garlic Bread
The best part about this recipe? It´s all done on the stove top instead of the oven, yet you still end up with that amazing crispy texture. Plus I´m going to show you how to make 2 different versions. One with cheese and one without.

No Oven Crispy Garlic Bread
The secret to this recipe is to use Garlic Infused Olive Oil. As it´s what really flavors the garlic breads. I used a Spanish one from the Biadso. Truly one of my personal favorite Garlic infused olive oils.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: When dipping the breads in the olive oil before adding them into the pan. Just give them a quick dip on both sides. Don´t saturate the breads in the olive oil. Otherwise the garlic breads will get too oily.

Author Albert Bevia @ Spain on a Fork


  • 1 baguette
  • 1/4 cup garlic infused olive oil 60 ml
  • 1 tsp dried oregano 1 gram
  • 2 cloves garlic (roughly chopped)
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley 8 grams
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 30 ml
  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese 115 grams
  • pinch sea salt


  1. Add the cloves of garlic into a mortar, along with the parsley and a pinch of sea salt, using a pestle mash down on the ingredients until you form a paste-like texture, then add in 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, mix together and set aside

  2. Heat a large non stick fry pan with a medium heat

  3. Meanwhile, cut the baguette into diagonal slices that are 1 inch (2.50 cm) thick

  4. Add the garlic infused olive oil into a shallow bowl, along with the dried oregano and a pinch of sea salt, whisk together

  5. Using a potato peeler, thinly peel slices from a block of mozzarella cheese, or you can just thinly slice using a knife

  6. To make the no cheese garlic bread, start dipping the slices of baguette in the olive oil mixture, on both sides, and then adding them into the hot pan, all in a single layer, cook in batches, after 2 minutes and the breads are golden, flip to crisp the other side, after another 2 minutes remove them from the fry pan and place over a wire rack

  7. To make the cheesy garlic breads, once again, dip the slices of baguette into the olive oil mixture (on both sides) and then into the hot pan, after 2 minutes flip the breads, add the thin slices of mozzarella over the breads, place a lid on the pan and lower to a LOW heat, after 2 to 3 minutes and the cheese is melted, remove the breads from the pan and over a wire rack

  8. To assemble the dish, add the garlic breads into a serving dish and drizzle them with the garlic green sauce, serve at once, enjoy!
