Air fryer Instructions

  • Preheat the air fryer at 180 C or 360 F for 4 minutes. Arrange the slices in the Air fryer basket.
  • Air fry for 2-4 minutes at 180C or 360F till nicely crispy and edges are browned. 2 minutes are enough for softer chewy bread while 2-4 minutes give you more toasted.
  • Take it out and sprinkle some chilli flakes (optional) if you so like. Serve warm with a dip of your choice. It is a delicious side.

Oven Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F or 175C. Keep bread with garlic butter in the oven.Toast or bake for 15 minutes till golden brown at 350F or 175C. Enjoy.


1. You can use baguette or ciabatta to prepare garlic bread because they have a lovely crust. I have used a multigrain baguette here.
2. You can cut the bread slices diagonally or horizontally cutting them into rectangles. The rectangles will need more air frying time as they are larger.
3. Do not overcook or your bread will turn into toast. I like a light toasting so that the bread is nice and soft but well toasted outside.
4. You can microwave the butter for about a minute if taking it out of the refrigerator. This will make it softer and easier to spread.
5. You can adjust the quantity of butter to how much you like to put on top of your garlic bread. I prefer a thin spread.
6. More garlic is better as this is the main flavouring component here. Go as per your taste.
7. You can store this bread at room temperature and it stays good for a few hours. You can also store in the fridge or freeze it for later use.
8. The Nutrition values are just an estimate.
