You can make this garlic bread in air fryer or oven (both the methods are explained in post). In comparison to oven, air fryer takes almost half the time in making this crispy cheesy garlic bread. Moreover you can do many variations by using various toppings, sauces or pesto (explained at the end of post).
Ingredients for air fryer garlic bread:
Bread: You can use baguette, french bread loaf or this no knead air fryer bread loaf to make cheesy garlic bread. Here I have sliced the loaf into 1/2′ inch thick discs as they are easier to serve but you can also cut the entire loaf lengthwise into half to get longer pieces.
Butter: Use softened butter in this recipe. If you are using unsalted butter, add some salt.
Garlic: Fresh garlic cloves taste best in this recipe. Mince them or dice them finely. You can intensify its flavour by also adding some garlic powder.
Seasoning: I have used Italian seasoning (mixed dried herbs), chilli flakes & fresh parsley in the recipe. You can adjust the seasoning as per you taste. If you don’t have fresh parsley you can also use chives or replace chilli flakes with some crushed black pepper.
Cheese: I like my garlic bread loaded with cheese but as some people prefer their garlic bread without cheese, so you can even skip it. I have used shredded mozzarella cheese but you can also use cheese blend or grated parmesan.
