There’s something magical about the aroma of warm garlic bread with a meal, especially when you realize you can have it ready in just four minutes using an air fryer. This ingenious cooking method quickly toasts the bread while infusing it with rich garlic butter, making it the perfect accompaniment to pasta, soup, or any savory dish. Here’s how to whip up deliciously savory garlic bread in your air fryer!


  • ½ loaf Italian bread (8 inches long), halved horizontally
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 large garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
  • 1 tbs. fresh parsley leaves, chopped
  • 2 tsp. Parmesan cheese, grated
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  • In a small saucepan, heat butter, olive oil, and smashed garlic cloves over medium-low heat until the butter melts, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let sit for 10 minutes to infuse the flavors.
  • Brush the garlic butter onto each piece of bread. Season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle evenly with Parmesan cheese.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 350°F. Once preheated, place the bread in the basket and cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
  • Carefully remove the bread from the air fryer and transfer it to a cutting board. Let it cool for a few minutes before slicing into 8 pieces.
