Ingredients For Texas Toast Garlic Bread
Bread – I love using Texas Toast because it’s thick and fluffy and it’s already sliced. You can also buy a loaf of french bread or Italian bread and cut the thick slices yourself.
Butter – I use salted butter and it’s important that it’s softened to room temperature. If you use unsalted butter, add a pinch of salt to the mix.
Garlic – Fresh is going to give you the very best flavor, but you can also use jarred, minced garlic.
Parsley – I always have dried parsley on hand so that’s a really easy ingredient to use. If you have fresh parsley, use that, and just double the amount.

Prep. Set out the butter at least a half hour prior to making the bread. You can set it out overnight if you wish. Preheat the air fryer (depending on the model you have, this will probably take just a few minutes).
Mix the garlic butter. Using a fork, combine the softened butter with the garlic and parsley.
Spread on toast. Spread the garlic butter evenly on both sides of each slice of Texas Toast.
Air fry. Drop the slices in the air fryer basket and cook for 5 minutes or until the bread is golden and crispy.
Everyone loves crispy, buttery garlic bread. Pair it with your favorite soup on a cold day, or serve a big platter of it with dinner. It’s especially perfect to enjoy with a big hearty plate of spaghetti with Homemade Spaghetti Sauce.
