  • 1 loaf French bread
  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3-4 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat the air fryer to 350°F
  • Cut the bread in a crosshatch (diamond) pattern: cut several rows one inch apart diagonally, and then a set of marks perpendicular to the first ones - again one inch apart. Cut until you reach the crust but don't cut all the way through.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together butter, olive oil, garlic, salt and parsley.
  • Use your fingers to open each crack and spread a teaspoonful of the butter mixture in it. I used a brush to do this. (Save about 1 tablespoon of the butter mixture for later.) Stuff each crack with a pinch of mozzarella cheese.
  • Wrap with foil and air fry for 15 minutes to melt the cheese.
  • Then, unwrap the garlic bread and brush the surface with the remaining butter mixture. Air fry for an additional 5-8 minutes, or until crusty.
  • Serve immediately!
