How To Make Air Fryer Garlic Toast

Step 1: Cut the bread

Use a sharp perforated knife and cut the bread into even slices.

Step 2: Make garlic butter

Combine the softened butter, parsley, and minced garlic in a bowl. Mix well.

Step 3: Air Fry

Spread the butter mixture onto the bread. Place in the air fryer basket and cook at 375 for 5-6 minutes. If you don’t add cheese, flip halfway through.


What kind of bread do I need?

I used Italian bread, but French or a baguette would also work well. You could even use basic sandwich bread if that is what you want.

Can I make it ahead?

Yep! Simply store in the fridge for 2-3 days in a sealed container. Or freeze for up to 1 month.

How do you reheat?

Place in the air fryer at 325 degrees for 3-4 minutes or until hot. It’s important to use a lower temperature, so it doesn’t cook the garlic bread too much.
