  • 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.



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.
  • 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!
