The Best Part about Garlic Bread is, that it requires ingredients that are usually available in everyone’s pantry. Let’s see what is required to make this Easy Air Fryer Garlic Bread today!
Baguette: I have used French Baguette in this recipe. You can use any bread of your choice!
Butter: I prefer using salted butter while making garlic bread. You can use unsalted butter as well. Make sure butter is softened to room temperature.
Garlic: Fresh, minced garlic works best for this recipe. Fresh garlic gives a great flavour. You can use garlic powder in its place.
Cheese: I have used a mix of grated parmesan and mozzarella cheese here. You can use either one or a mix of your choice of grated cheese.
Seasoning: This Garlic bread is seasoned with Italian Seasoning and Dried Parsley
How to make Air Fryer Garlic Bread

Generously spread the garlic butter mixture on the bread slices.
Preheat the air fryer to 350F for 5 minutes. Spray the air fryer basket with oil or non-stick spray.

Serving & Storage Instructions
Garlic bread can be served as a snack or an appetizer. It can also be had along with soup, pasta, salad etc. Try serving this air fryer garlic bread with
Asparagus & Cauliflower Soup, Butternut Squash Coconut Milk Soup,

Garlic Bread tastes best when served immediately. As time goes by, the crust of the bread hardens. If you have leftovers, you can refrigerate them in an air-tight container for upto 3 days. Re-heat in an air fryer at 350F for 2 minutes till the garlic bread gets warm.
Tips and Variations
You can adjust the amount of garlic used in the recipe. You can also omit the cheese if you wish to.
Add red chilli flakes on top if desired. You can also add fresh parsley, and pepper powder to this recipe.
Every air fryer is different. The cooking time depends on your air fryer and the texture you desire. Keep an eye after 3 minutes of cooking time. If you prefer a softer crust, you can remove it at 3 minutes.
Do not overcrowd the air fryer. Cook in multiple batches if your basket cannot fit in all the bread slices.
