Garlic bread is loved by many the whole world over but traditional ovens take so long to heat up (and are energy inefficient as a result) and grilling the bread never seems to gives the best result.Enter the amazing air fryer which is compact, energy efficient and ready in a jiffy. Air fryer garlic bread is ready in about 5-8 minutes, give or take depending on your preference.Not only that but you have full scope to make it more or less buttery, or garlicy or whatever you want.It's a great way to cook garlic bread for a crunchy outside and softer middle, all full of taste.
1 ½Baguette / French Bread / BreadstickEnough for 4 people - lengths vary!
Soften salted butter at room temperature in hot climates or kitchens or use a microwave on medium power to soften for a few seconds until the runny enough to mix - similar to yogurt consistency.
Finely mince garlic with garlic mincer, or chop finely with a knife
Detach the parsley leaves and discard the stems. Finely chop parsley
Slice the bread diagonally about ¾ inch thick (20mm)
Mince the garlic into a mixing bowl and add the softened butter. Mix together and add the parsley, mixing until the ingredients are well distributed.
Spread the soft garlic butter on one side each slice of bread. It is up to you how thick to spread the butter but it will melt into the surface of the bread so add enough to get to your desired level of garlicy and buttery.
Set the slices in one full layer on the bottom and a couple of slices on top to half cover the slices on the bottom whilst allowing enough space for the hot air to circulate. Bake in Air Fryer for 4 minutes at 160°C or 320°F.
Open the fryer to check and reposition the slices on the top, noting how far cooked the garlic bread is. Cook a little longer until golden brown - for us this was an additional 3 minutes for a total of 7 minutes.
