When it comes to other air fryer side dishes, we just have to mention Air Fryer French Fries. French fries can be a bit unhealthy for you- what with all the deep frying- but air frying them keeps them crispy while being much healthier!

We love grilled cheese and making an Air Fryer Grilled Cheese couldn’t be much easier! Load your sandwich up with plenty of cheese, butter it up, and let the air fryer do most of the work for you. Get a perfect grilled cheese almost everytime- cheesy, melty, buttery, and oh-so good!
Of course, you can make all sorts of entrees and mains in the air fryer as well- like our Air Fryer Chicken Breasts. Making chicken breast in the air fryer is one of the easiest ways to get perfect, juicy chicken breasts with crispy skin. Great on it’s own, sliced over a salad, or shredded up for all sorts of other recipes!
Garlic Bread Ingredients
Bread – We used an Italian loaf here, but you could use almost any kind of bread for our Air Fryer Garlic Bread. Try this with a leftover baguette or maybe some slices of Texas toast.
Seasonings – To make our butter into a homemade garlic butter, you’ll need garlic and onion powders- at a minimum. You could also add in some herbs: we used parsley for ours but feel free to experiment!
How to make Garlic Bread in Air Fryer
Slice the bread into medallions, mix up the garlic butter, and grate parmesan cheese.
Spread garlic butter on both sides of bread slices and sprinkle cheese over top side of each slice.
Air fry garlic bread slices at 350 degrees for 6 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
Before we make our garlic bread, we have to get a few things prepped first. Take your bread and start slicing it into medallions- go as thick or as thin as you like. In a bowl, mix together your butter, onion powder, garlic powder, and parsley. Grate your parmesan as well.
Take that garlic butter and spread it over both sides of your bread slices.
Don’t forget the cheese! Sprinkle a generous amount over the top side of each slice.
If your air fryer doesn’t warm up as fast, you might want to preheat it to 350 degrees before cooking. Usually, we don’t need to preheat ours to cook garlic bread.
Preheated or not, cook your garlic bread for about 6 minutes at 350 degrees. What you’re looking for is a nice, golden brown color.
When your garlic bread is finished, pull it from the air fryer and let it cool for maybe a minute or two. We want to serve this warm- not blistering hot!
There you go: easy garlic bread cooked about as quickly as frozen garlic bread! Grab some warm marinara sauce for dipping and enjoy.
