Getting garlic breath is totally worth it when you bite into these yummy garlic recipes.
Garlic is such an important ingredient in cooking. It’s got that little something that adds a bite to pasta and completes sauces. Plus, it’s great for your health!
Depending on how you cook it, this aromatic allium can range from mildly sweet to pungent, which just enhances its versatility.
From garlic knots to savory meats, the one thing all these recipes have in common is they’re all delicious!
1. Wingstop Garlic Parmesan Wings
First up on the list of all things garlic are these lip-smacking wings. Wingstop is famous for its killer garlic wings, and now you can make them at home.
These wings are not only rubbed with garlic, but there’s also garlic in the flour for dredging.
It doesn’t stop there, as these juicy wings get a mouth-watering coating of garlic parmesan sauce, too.
2. Garlic Confit (and Homemade Garlic Oil)
You’ll want to slather this garlic confit on everything!
Confit is just a fancy term for preserving food by slow cooking. It’s common with meat, but you can use this method of cooking for garlic, too.
The result is heads of buttery, sweet garlic. This recipe adds another layer by including a garlic-infused oil with a pinch of rosemary.
There are so many things you can do with this recipe.
But I suggest starting easy with some garlic confit toast and a salad with garlic oil for the dressing.
3. Garlic Soup
If garlic is what you want, garlic is what you get with this creamy soup. This one is for diehard garlic fans all the way!
It calls for a whopping four heads of roasted garlic. That gets blended into a creamy broth with some sweet caramelized onions and savory crispy pancetta.
4. Best Garlic Bread
I don’t think anyone out there can resist this garlic bread. It’s buttery and slightly cheesy, thanks to the sprinkle of parmesan.
Do yourself a favor and stick with a classic loaf of French bread for this one.
5. Garlic Sauteed Spinach
Trying to get the family to eat more greens? Add a side of garlic spinach to the table.
This 10-minute dish requires very few ingredients, and the fresh garlic cloves add a pungent kick.
If you want to make it a garlic feast, serve this with the garlic bread I mentioned and the garlic butter pork chops at the end of the list.
6. Papa John’s Garlic Sauce
The one thing that has me hooked on Papa John’s is their garlic sauce. This dipping sauce is so good, I can’t resist it.
But I realize it’s probably unrealistic to keep swinging by just for the sauce. That’s why I love this recipe.
I get the sauce I want at home with just three ingredients, and now you can, too.
7. Garlic Butter
Don’t forget that you can also infuse butter with garlic.
This is another three-ingredient recipe that’s beginner-friendly with big results.
You basically cream butter with fresh garlic and parsley, then store it in the fridge.
Whether you’re smearing it on bread or using it for cooking, garlic butter is an easy way to infuse your food with the garlic taste you crave.
8. Garlic Rice
Here’s a great side to go with all your meals. It’s a quick and easy dish, especially with a rice cooker.
I recommend using white rice if you want the garlic to stand out even more.
Basmati is good if you like your rice chewier. Jasmine is also a fine choice for those who like their rice softer.
9. Garlic Lovers Roast Beef
Garlic is great for side dishes, but it’s also incredible when you add it to the main event.
This robust roast beef is rubbed down with rosemary and has garlic slices inserted in the meat.
This juicy, picture-perfect protein is just begging to make its debut on your holiday table.
10. Garlic and Chive Mashed Potatoes
You know what, I think this mashed potatoes recipe will go exquisitely with that roast beef.
These creamy spuds are super buttery, garlicky, and fresh.
Come the holidays, this fluffy bowl of mashed potatoes will be everyone’s favorite side dish.
11. Spaghetti with Garlic and Olive Oil
Skip the marinara and let the garlic do all the talking. This 10-minute recipe is light with minimal effort.
While the pasta is cooking, you make the chili and garlic sauce.
Although the parsley and parmesan are optional, it’s that extra special touch that rounds out all the flavors.
12. Garlic Butter Chicken
Trying to cut down on red meat? You can still have your crowd-pleasing protein with this tender chicken.
Seasoned chicken gets browned so it has a nice, crispy exterior. It then cooks in a rich, buttery, garlic sauce with a splash of white wine.
It sounds fancy, but your guests will never know it took less than 30 minutes.
13. Roasted Garlic Guacamole
Holy guacamole! Sorry, I couldn’t help the pun. But I’m so jazzed up about this dip.
It has the typical guacamole ingredients including fresh avocados, cilantro, tomato, and lime.
The key difference is there’s no onion but pan-roasted garlic instead.
This is a sensational appetizer for game days, barbecues, and more. I’d be lying, though, if I didn’t tell you I could gobble it all up by myself.
14. 5-Ingredient Easy Garlic Hummus
There are so many hummus flavors it can often be hard to choose. However, this one is my go-to.
It calls for blending five ingredients until they’re smooth and creamy.
This one uses fresh garlic so it’s more pungent. Although, it’s great with roasted garlic, too.
15. Garlic Knots
These garlic knots are a carb lover’s dream. They’re chewy, buttery, and very fresh.
As soon as the household smells this baking in the oven, they’ll come running to the kitchen.
If you can manage to save some, they pair well with pasta. This is also a great game day recipe if you’re looking for a winner.
16. Garlic Butter Shrimp
This 10-minute garlic butter shrimp is a quick dinner fix for weeknights. It’s also classy enough for special occasions.
Succulent jumbo shrimp get a coating of Italian seasoning, then cooked in garlic butter. A squeeze of lemon makes the flavors shine.
17. Sauteed Green Beans with Garlic
Have a bounty of garden-fresh green beans? I know just what to do.
Saute them with some garlic and add just a pinch of quality sea salt. This is a super quick and simple recipe that’s great if you need a fast side dish.
If you want to doll it up some, I suggest adding a splash of sherry and some gorgonzola cheese.
18. Garlic Noodles
Have a hankering for garlicky noodles? Ditch all the extra ingredients and whip up this Italian-Asian fusion recipe.
This one is all about tender noodles bathed in an umami garlic sauce.
There are no extra toppings or veggies to take away from the perfect combination of these two things.
19. Killer Garlic Fries with Rosemary
You didn’t think I would talk about garlic without mentioning garlic fries, did you?
This is a copycat recipe of the legendary garlic fries from Gordon-Biersch. These pan baked fries get loaded with garlic goodness to the max!
The only tweak I make is using fresh potatoes rather than frozen.
20. Garlic Pizza
Family pizza night gets a whole lot better with this cheesy pie. This pizza is oozing with four types of cheese and an entire head of roasted garlic.
If you’re feeling adventurous, serve this up with homemade Papa John’s garlic sauce.
21. Garlic Butter Baked Salmon
Looking for a healthy and satiating sheet pan dinner? This one is high up on my list.
Salmon is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and garlic is excellent for your immune system. Plus, the two together are super scrumptious.
You’ll love the fragrant garlic sauce, flaky salmon, and tender broccoli. You’ll also love the easy cleanup.
22. Garlic Cream Sauce
Pasta, shrimp, or chicken, this garlic cream sauce pairs well with so many things.
It’s no doubt super creamy and garlicky. But it’s also fresh and cheesy due to the parsley and parmesan cheese.
23. Baked Chicken Meatballs with Garlic Dill Yogurt Sauce
Meatball fans, here’s one you’ll want to whip up tonight.
In between the chicken and the baking, this is a healthier take on meatballs. It’s also surprisingly quick to make.
While the meatballs bake, make the creamy and fresh yogurt sauce for dipping.
24. Garlic Butter Pork Chop
If you find yourself running out of family dinner ideas, here’s a quick one to add to the rotation.
These 15-minute pork chops require minimal ingredients and effort on your part. They’re rich in garlic butter with a hint of thyme and cooked to perfection.
For a quick side, pair these with the garlic green beans and it’s a win-win.
25. Garlic Butter Grilled Steak & Shrimp
This is the ultimate surf and turf! Grilled porterhouse steak and juicy shrimp are dripping with a three-ingredient garlic butter.
This is a supreme recipe for impressing guests at cookouts. It’s also quick enough that you can make it for dinner tonight.
