This air-fryer garlic bread turns out perfectly toasted in a hurry. I use fresh garlic, but substitute 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder if you don't have any fresh on hand. —Peggy Woodward, Shullsburg, Wisconsin
Preheat air fryer to 350°. In a small bowl, combine first 4 ingredients; spread over bread.
In batches, arrange bread in a single layer on tray in air-fryer basket. Cook until golden brown, 2-3 minutes. Serve warm.
Air-Fryer Garlic Bread Tips
What other kinds of bread can you use for air-fryer garlic bread?
You can use any sturdy, crusty bread such as Italian, baguette or sourdough for this air-fryer garlic bread.
Can you add cheese to the top of air-fryer garlic bread?
If you'd like more cheese on your garlic bread, we suggest adding 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan or 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella to your garlic butter mixture before spreading over the sliced bread. (The air fryer fan could blow loose cheese off of the bread, but the butter mixture should hold it together.)
Yes! Arrange slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and transfer to your freezer. Once frozen, transfer to a freezer bag or airtight container. Freeze for up to 3 months. There's no need to thaw when you're ready to serve: simply remove as many slices as you want and follow the same method in the recipe, allowing 1-2 minutes longer cook time.
In our testing, we find cook times vary dramatically between brands of air fryers. As a result, we give wider than normal ranges on suggested cook times. Begin checking at the first time listed and adjust as needed.
