Suitable for vegetarian diets. Post includes Weight Watchers points.
Making frozen garlic bread in air fryer is a great shortcut for busy weeknight dinners, or whenever you got a hankering for a slice or two of this totally crave-worthy side dish.
Keeping frozen garlic bread on hand is a helpful kitchen hack. It’s so versatile and goes with just about everything. I can’t imagine eating pasta or soup and not having a piece of flavorful garlic bread to sop up every last drop in the bottom of the plate or bowl.
What I don’t love about garlic bread is waiting for the oven to heat, hoping the butter is soft enough to spread without tearing the bread, and then waiting yet again while the bread crisps. So when I learned how quick and simple it is to make frozen garlic bread in air fryer, I knew there was no going back to the oven method!
And I love cooking Air Fryer Frozen Burrito, family friendly snack Air Fryer Frozen Meatballs, and the crispiest Air Fryer Frozen Chicken Wings just as much. These really work well in the air fryer.
With no waiting and no mess, you can take a loaf of ready-made garlic bread straight from the freezer to the table in well under 10 minutes. And air fryer frozen garlic bread really does turn out perfect every single time.
Why Make This Recipe
- Fast – Air frying frozen garlic bread takes less time than it would to simply preheat the oven.

How To Make Frozen Garlic Bread in Air Fryer
Get the complete ingredients list and instructions from the recipe card below.
- Preheat air fryer to 375 degrees F / 190 degrees C. Cut garlic bread in half lengthwise (making 4 pieces).
- Place the buttered side up inside the air fryer basket and cook garlic bread for 5-8 minutes, or until golden brown. Check for doneness halfway through, and adjust time as needed based on your air fryer and the size of the bread.
- If the frozen bread is large, you may have to cut it into smaller pieces so it fits inside the air fryer basket or air fry in batches. Even though it is frozen, it should still be easy to cut with a serrated knife.
- Don’t overfill the air fryer basket. Cook frozen garlic bread slices in a single layer so the butter melts evenly and the bread doesn’t become soggy.
- If the garlic bread does not have cheese on it, you can flip it over halfway through cooking.
- Start with the lowest time suggested and increase if needed after checking for doneness.
- If you prefer crispier bread, add a few minutes to the cooking time.
- Air fryer temperatures will vary depending on the type and model, so use the cook times listed as a guide and adjust as needed.
How To Cook Different Types of Frozen Garlic Bread
Ready-made frozen garlic bread comes in different shapes and sizes, including;
- individual slices
- Texas toast
- garlic knots
- garlic toast
You can easily cook all different types of frozen garlic bread in your air fryer with just a few adjustments.
How Long To Cook Frozen Garlic Bread in Air Fryer
Generally, the air fryer will take about half the amount of standard oven cooking time listed on the package.
I recommend starting out with less time, then check for doneness, and continue cooking in 1-2 minute increments as needed to reach your desired level of crispiness.
- Add Cheese – If you purchase plain garlic bread, you can easily add grated parmesan cheese to the top about halfway through cooking.
- Add Herbs – Sprinkle the top of the bread with your favorite herbs.
- Turn It Into Pizza – About halfway through cooking, remove the bread and top with pizza sauce, cheese, and your favorite pizza toppings. Return to the air fryer and cook until the cheese is melted. #sogood
- Add More Garlic Flavor – Garlic lovers can top their frozen garlic bread with fresh minced garlic or garlic butter.
- Serve With Sauce – Add a side of marinara sauce for a tasty appetizer or snack.
Prep And Storage
- Prep Ahead – No prep needed! Go straight from the freezer to the air fryer.
- Store – Store leftover garlic bread in an airtight container inside the fridge for up to 4 days.
- Freeze – Refreezing after cooking frozen garlic bread is not recommended.
No! The best part of this air fryer garlic bread recipe is that you can go straight from the freezer to air frying.
To reheat garlic bread, just preheat your air fryer to 375 degrees F / 190 degrees C. Place the leftover garlic bread in the fryer for 1-2 minutes or until heated through.
Air fryer temperatures can vary, so we recommend starting with the lowest time adding additional minutes as needed.

That’s it, I am going to have to have another Air Fryer. Love all the recipes.
This is such a simple recipe and so wonderfully delicious. I go ahead and put my pizza sauce directly on the garlic toast withe the cheese on top and then the toppings I might be in the mood for. Does not need flipped, at least in my Ninja. Favorite fast and easy or just plain to go with pasta. thanks so much for sharing.
