Slice baguette in ¾” slices and set aside. You will only be suing 5 slices. If making more than 5 slices just double the garlic butter ingredients and make 2 air fryer batches.
Preheat air fryer for 5 minutes at 360 degrees.
To make garlic butter, mix soft butter with minced garlic, cheese and herbs in a small bowl until smooth.
Spread both sides of bread with garlic butter.
Carefully place 5 slices into hot basket, or what will comfortably fit in your air fryer, and cook for 5 minutes. Turn each slice over and cook another 3 minutes.
Remove from air fryer basket to plate and garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.
Oven-Baked InstructionsTo bake slices in the oven, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lay slices on a cookie sheet in a single layer and bake for 10-15 minutes.Tips for making the best air fried garlic bread
Use the best butter like Minerva Dairy's full 85% butterfat sea salt butter in place of cheap butter or margarine.
Use fresh Parmesan cheese and great yourself for better melting. Packaged shredded cheese contains cellulose to keep the cheese from clumping but it also makes the cheese harder to melt.
For the best flavor, use fresh garlic, minced fine. If you have the time or your garden is growing great guns, use a combination of 1-2 tablespoons of fresh chopped herbs such as oregano, thyme, basil and rosemary in place of the Italian Seasoning. You can also opt for a tablespoon of parsley.
