In under 15 minutes, you can have a delicious Cheese Pull Apart Bread made in the Air Fryer, loaded with plenty of herbed butter and lots of cheese. It makes for an impressive appetizer that’s so much fun to enjoy!


  •  prep:10minutes
  •  cook:5minutes
  •  total :15 minutes 


    • 8 tablespoons butter unsalted, softened
    • 2 cloves garlic minced
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons chives chopped
    • 1 medium crusty bread should fit in the basket of your air fryer
    • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
    • ½ cup cheddar cheese shredded
    • 1 tablespoon parsley chopped


    • Make the garlic butter: Add the butter, garlic, salt and chives to a small bowl and mix to combine. Melt in the microwave for 30 seconds.
    • Make slits in bread: Using a bread knife, create slits into your bread, diagonally, 1-inch apart, but do not cut all the way through he bread.
    • Drizzle butter in bread slits: Add butter and cheese: Use your fingers to open up the slits and drizzle butter mixture in all the slits. You should have some remaining butter. Set aside.
    • Place cheese in bread slits: Place cheese in slits, making sure each slit is filled with butter, mozzarella and cheddar cheese. Brush the remaining butter over the entire bread.
    • Air fry: Place the bread in the basket of your air fryer and air fry it at 350°F for 4 minutes or until the cheese melts and the bread is heated through.
    • Garnish and Serve: Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.

Tips & notes:

  1. Get creative and try different herbs and cheeses to your liking.
  2. Omit the salt in the recipe and instead sprinkle with flaky salt instead.
  3. Although I really prefer using fresh garlic, in a pinch you can use garlic powder instead.
  4. Try a dipping sauce for extra goodness, such as marinara.
