I have wanted to create a pull-apart bread recipe for ages now! I finally decided to take this recipe off my to-do list and put it into action, but with my air fryer! And man, this bread does not disappoint!

How Long Do You Cook Garlic Bread in Air Fryer

This air fryer pull apart garlic bread only takes 5 minutes to cook!

I found this sourdough loaf at Trader Joe’s for only $2. I’ve never seen it in the past, so I’m not sure if it’s put out seasonally or if they always have it. If not, you can typically find sourdough at any bakery.

How to Cook Garlic Bread in Air Fryer

  1. I recommend that you use sourdough bread. It’s great for pull apart bread and should fit nicely in your air fryer.
  2. Once you’ve got your bread, test out placing it in the air fryer to be sure it will fit. You may have to slice off a portion of an edge to get it to fit.
  3. You will need to use a serrated bread knife when slicing the bread. If you don’t, you will likely find it difficult to slice. Lay the bread horizontal, and make diagonal cuts across the bread. Avoid the edges of the bread (about 1 inch from the corners. Turn the bread around and make diagonal cuts the other way to create small diamond shapes.
  4. Combine melted butter, olive oil, garlic, Italian Seasoning, salt and butter in a bowl. Use a cooking brush and glaze the inside of the bread with the mixture.
  5. Next, add mozzarella cheese. You can use shredded cheese or cubed. Cubed cheese is a lot easier to stuff into the bread, but I prefer to use shredded because it melts easier. If using shredded you can try stuffing the cheese into the bread with a butter knife.
  6. Air fry the bread.

Air Fryer Garlic Bread Tips:

  • Measure and test your bread out first to be sure it will fit your air fryer. If the bread is too large you can trim it down some.
  • You can use any bread that you like, just be sure it fits your air fryer.
  • Be careful not to slice totally through the bread. If you notice a portion was sliced down too far, you can use a toothpick to hold the bread together.
  • Feel free to add more cheese if you want more!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave for about 15-30 seconds.
  • Add olive oil, garlic, parsley, Italian Seasoning, salt and pepper to the butter and stir.
  • Place the bread down flat, horizontally. Cut the bread using a serrated bread knife diagonally, about 2/3rds of the way through the bread, without cutting through the bread. Avoid the edges of the bread (about 1 inch from the corners). Turn the bread around and make diagonal cuts the other way to create small diamond shapes.
  • Load the garlic olive oil butter into the cracks and crevices throughout the bread. I used a cooking brush.
  • Next, add the cheese into each of the cracks. You can use shredded cheese or cubed. Cubed cheese is a lot easier to stuff into the bread, but I prefer to use shredded because it melts easier. If using shredded you can try stuffing the cheese into the bread with a butter knife.
  • Place the bread in the air fryer. Cook on 350 degrees for 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
  • Cool before serving.

  • If you would like to have a bunch of pull apart areas of the bread, create a lot of slices in the bread, closer together. For large pull apart areas, make less slices in the bread.
  • Feel free to add more cheese if you want more!

Okay, so Dominoe’s cheesy bread is my weakness and I tend to want to have it once a week. This recipe will definitely take its place!

Easy steps. Easy cooking (don’t have to stand in the kitchen to watch!) - always a win.

What is great about this recipe is that you really can’t mess it up. It doesn’t have to be “pretty!” I plan on pairing it with Brandi’s Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs for dinner this week :-)
