A few days ago, I woke up seeing a round loaf of bread on the dining table. While thinking about what to do about it, I suddenly remembered seeing a video on Facebook about a garlic butter recipe.

The smell and taste of the spread is heavenly. So, I decided to share my very own version of the garlic butter recipe with you all. I hope you enjoy the process as much as I did!

How to make garlic butter

There are many different ways to make garlic butter recipe. Others use fresh chopped garlic, but since my hubby and my toddler are not fans of spicy food, I baked the garlic. The flavor and aroma are still there without the spiciness if you bake the garlic. 

If you like it spicier, you may opt to add fresh garlic, but if not, follow the instructions below for a toddler-approved garlic butter recipe. 


2 whole garlic

¼ cup unsalted butter

A dash of everything below: 

salt and pepper

dried oregano leaves

garlic powder (for more garlicky flavor)

onion powder


Serving size: About 5 to 6 slices of bread


  1. Preheat the convection oven to 160 degrees Celsius. 
  2. Soften the butter (or just leave it out of the fridge is fine), then place in a mixing bowl.
  3. Slice the whole garlic in half. (Refer to image 2)
  4. Place the garlic in an aluminum foil, then drizzle with olive oil. Cover the garlic completely by closing the aluminum foil. 
  5. Bake the covered garlic in the convection oven for 20 to 25 minutes at 160 degrees Celsius, and go take a shower or do your thing!
  6. When the oven’s time is up, remove the garlic and let it cool. 
  7. Squeeze the garlic out of its peel into the bowl of softened butter. (Refer to image 3)
  8. Add the rest of the ingredients, and mix until everything is blended. (Refer to image 4)
  9. Transfer your garlic butter into a clean container, preferably an air-tight one. I used a recycled glass bottle of peanut butter. 
  10. Keep in the fridge for immediate use; otherwise, keep in the freezer for a longer shelf-life. 

How long does garlic butter last in the refrigerator

I searched through different websites to find out how long to store garlic butter in the fridge. And I found different answers ranging from 5 days up to 3 months. But frankly speaking, do you think your garlic butter spread would last that long? 

You might be happy if it would last for 3 days! LOL. Kidding aside, if you want your garlic butter to last longer, make sure to avoid contamination. Use a new spoon every time you are scooping from an air-tight container. 

Also, ensure that you store your spread in the fridge when not in use. If you will not use it for a long time, keep it in the freezer to prolong its shelf-life. 


You can find many garlic butter recipes on the web. However, each cook prefers their recipe over the others because it suits their taste well. You can substitute other ingredients to your liking: say, changing the herb used based on what is available in your cupboard. 

If you prefer your garlic butter to be a bit spicy, you may add chili powder. Add more salt and pepper if you wish. Finally, use your spread whenever you wish, but bear in mind to use it in moderation, especially if you have heart conditions.
