Air frying frozen garlic bread is a great way to achieve a delicious and crispy texture within a few minutes. They are also widely referred to as Texas toast garlic bread. An ideal snack for a quick munch.
Frozen garlic bread cooked in an air fryer has more crispiness and golden outside while maintaining a soft, fluffy inside. It can be cooked in an air fryer more rapidly and effectively than in a traditional oven, which is one of the benefits of doing so. While preserving the interior’s moisture and tenderness, the hot air moving inside the air fryer produces a crispy surface.
How To Cook Frozen Garlic Bread In Air Fryer?
2-3 Frozen garlic bread slices
Step-1: Take 3-4 garlic bread slices. If you are using straight bread then cut it down into small pieces with reasonable thickness.
Step-2: Preheat the air fryer to 400 F for 3 minutes.
Step-3: Cook the garlic bread slices for 6 minutes at 380 F. The bread will get crispy and brown with crunchy corners.

Do You Need To Thaw Frozen Garlic Bread?
No, it is not necessary to thaw frozen garlic bread before cooking them in the air fryer. You can put the frozen garlic bread slices straight in the air fryer. Because if you thaw the bread slices so they won’t turn out soggy and will lack crispiness. When cooked from frozen, the hot air circulating in the air fryer will cook the bread more quickly and efficiently, creating a crispy exterior while keeping the interior moist and tender.
How Long Does Frozen Garlic Bread Take In The Air Fryer?
The cooking time for frozen garlic bread in an air fryer can vary depending on the thickness and type of the garlic bread, as well as the specific model of the air fryer used. However, as a general guideline, 6-8 minutes are required to cook frozen garlic bread.
For a crispy and crunchy texture, I would suggest cooking at a slightly higher temperature around 380 F for 6 minutes. If you don’t like more crispy bread slices then cook at 330 F for 6 minutes.
