This Air Fryer Garlic Bread is a 15-minute, 6-ingredient recipe that makes the best garlic bread! Baguette slices are slathered in a homemade garlic butter, then air fried until soft in the middle and crispy on the outside.
Combine the softened butter with minced garlic, parmesan cheese, dried basil and chopped parsley.
Generously spread the mixture onto baguette slices.
Place the garlic bread in the fryer basket in a single layer.
Air fry at 350°F for 3-5 minutes, depending on your preference. For a softer, chewy texture, air fry for 3-4 minutes, for golden crisp edges, air fry for 5 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes, then serve warm.
Use real butter for the best flavor. Margarine just doesn't have quite the same taste.
Use freshly minced garlic for a stronger garlicky flavor (my preference) or garlic powder for a more mild flavor.
If you like an even cheesier bread, feel free to top with shredded mozzarella, extra parmesan, or both.
Make sure you lay the garlic bread in a single layer in the air fryer basket so the air has space to circulate. That way it will get crispy all the way around.
Air fry for 3-4 minutes for a softer texture, or 5 minutes for a golden crisp garlic bread. When making this for the first time, start with less time and add more as needed.
Cool 5 minutes, then serve right away for the best texture. Garlic bread that sits too long will start to harden.
