There are so many ways to make a grilled cheese sandwich in the air fryer.
This recipe here has a little twist. Instead of starting with fresh bread, we’re starting with frozen Texas toast garlic bread. This makes things so easy and so flavorful!

Bread – We use frozen garlic Texas toast for the recipe, this should be easy to find at your grocer.
Cheese – We put two slices of mozzarella and a little shredded parmesan on each sandwich. This makes for a nice, melty middle.
Dipping Sauce– We love this sandwich dipped in a warm pizza sauce. Of course, ranch or Alfredo sauce makes a great dip too!
How to Make Garlic Bread Grilled Cheese in the Air Fryer:
- Garlic Bread – Add your two slices of frozen garlic bread to the air fryer basket and air fry for 3 minutes at 380 degrees F.
- Cheese– Flip a piece of your partially cooked garlic bread over and add a slice of mozzarella to the top. Then sprinkle on your Parmesan before placing the second slice of mozzarella. Now place the second piece of bread back on the sandwich. We like the garlic flavoring on the outside of the sandwich. Air fry again for 3 more minutes at 380 degrees F.
- Sauce– Pour some pizza sauce into a dish and pop it in the microwave to warm it up. Dip your sandwich in the sauce.
You can use the cheesy frozen Texas toast also! Cook them initially with the cheese side up, then flip them so the cheese is on inside when you make the sandwich!
