Semi-homemade garlic bread toast with cheese

Easy Cheesy Texas Toast

Garlic, Parmesan, mozzarella and provolone on buttered bread is the BEST combination we've found for semi-homemade garlic toast. We love a thick piece of bread to serve along side several of our meals and Texas Toast is perfect to use.

  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella
  • 6 slices provolone
  • 6 slices Texas toast or other thick slice of bread
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley optional garnish


  • Lightly toasting bread before applying seasonings is optional. Toasting makes bread more crunchy, skipping this step will keep bread more soft.
  • Melt butter and stir in Parmesan, oregano and garlic powder. Mix well.
  • Arrange bread in air fryer basket or on a baking sheet in a flat, single layer. Spread mixture evenly over slices of bread.
  • Sprinkle mozzarella cheese evenly over toast. Add a slice of provolone to each slice of toast.
  • Place in Air Fryer at 350°F for 5 minutes or bake in oven at 375°F for 5 - 7 minutes until cheese is melted.
  • Garnish with parsley if desired and serve.


  • A thick bread works best for this recipe since it's loaded with cheese and so many flavors
  • Sometimes I like to slice a loaf of Italian or French bread and add this garlic and cheese mixture
  • Toast can be buttered on both sides if preferred, but I like to sandwich all of the garlic flavors in between the toast and melted cheese
  • A combination of at least two cheeses works best to maximize flavors
  • Day-old bread off of the discount rack works great for this recipe and helps save money
  • Garlic toast reheats well in the toaster oven in just a couple minutes
