Expert tips

  • Soft or crispy: If you like crispier garlic bread, bake it for closer to 5 minutes. If you like it softer, take it out after around 3 minutes. Wrapping the bread in aluminum foil before baking will also keep it softer.
  • Cut into small pieces: We recommend cutting the bread into small pieces before air frying, so more pieces will fit in your air fryer. Depending on the size of your air fryer you may have to cook in batches.
  • Cheese: If you love extra cheesy bread, you’ll definitely want to try our garlic cheesy bread next. Or for a Mexican spin, try this jalapeño popper cheesy breadsticks recipe.
