  • 1 round boule bread (sourdough or white)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Preheat the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (180°C).
  • Prepare the Boule:
    • Using a sharp knife, make diagonal cuts in the boule, creating a grid pattern. Make sure not to cut all the way through, leaving the bottom intact.
  • Make Garlic Butter:
    • In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, minced garlic, and chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Coat the Boule:
    • Brush the garlic butter mixture generously over the entire surface of the boule, ensuring it gets into the cuts.
  • Add Cheese:
    • Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese into the cuts, making sure the cheese is evenly distributed.
  • Wrap in Foil (Optional):
    • If you prefer a softer pull-apart bread, you can wrap the prepared boule in foil, leaving the top open, before placing it in the air fryer.
  • Air Fry:
  • Serve:
    • Carefully remove the cheesy garlic pull-apart boule from the air fryer. Allow it to cool slightly before serving.
  • Enjoy:
    • Pull apart the sections of the boule and enjoy the irresistible combination of cheesy goodness and garlicky flavor.

This Cheesy Garlic Pull-Apart Boule makes for a fantastic centerpiece at a gathering or a delightful appetizer for a cozy evening. Feel free to experiment with different cheeses or herbs to suit your taste preferences!
