Special Tips

1. Use a low-moisture cheese such as Parmesan or Asiago for the best results.

2. Preheat the air fryer before adding the cheese and garlic mixture to ensure even cooking.

3. Use a silicone baking mat or parchment paper to ensure the cheese doesn’t stick to the air fryer basket.

4. Keep an eye on the cheese as it cooks, as it can burn quickly.

5. Add your favorite herbs and spices for extra flavor.

6. Serve the garlic cheese ‘bread’ with a side of marinara sauce for dipping.
