  • ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese optional
  • 2 tbsp Italian spices optional
  • ½ French baguette or rustic Italian bread loaf

  • Slice baguette into ½ inch pieces. Set aside.

  • Optional: add cheeses and Italian herbs to a bowl and mix. Add to top garlic bread.
  • Add bread slices to air fryer and cook at 350°F for 4-5 minutes, then an additional 2-3 minutes as necessary- be sure to check on bread after about 4 minutes, then every 2 minutes thereafter.

Cook from frozen

  • Cook frozen garlic bread beginning at 325°F for approximately 3 minutes, then 350°F for an additional 3 minutes. Check frequently.

Notes

Recipe notes:
Store in a refrigerated, air-tight container for up to 3 days after cooking. Alternatively, you may freeze for up to a month in a tightly sealed freezer bag.
To freeze: use a sharp knife cut the French bread into 1-inch thick slices (about a dozen or so total).  Spread about 1 tablespoon of garlic paste over the each.
Place the slices on a baking sheet and put them in the freezer for about 30 minutes to harden up. Transfer each slice of the garlic bread to a gallon-sized freezer bag once it has solidified.
Cook frozen garlic bread beginning at 325°F for approximately 3 minutes, then 350°F for an additional 3 minutes.
