To me, the BEST part of a salad is the crunchy croutons! This is an easy recipe for homemade Air Fryer Garlic Herb Croutons 🙂
I like to cook them so they are crisp on the outside and a little soft on the inside.
So in the recipe I left a range of cook time to allow you to cook them according to your preference.
How to make Air Fryer Garlic Herb Croutons
I am starting with two ciabatta rolls.
But a French baguette or Italian loaf will work too.
Some fresh garlic cloves, or you can use garlic powder.
And fresh rosemary, or you could use dried Italian seasoning.
First cut the bread into cubes and place in a bowl.
This is about 3 cups.
Chop the herbs and mince the garlic if you are using fresh.
Then drizzle some olive oil on the bread, starting with a few tablespoons.
And toss in kosher salt, pepper, the garlic or garlic powder, and the fresh herbs or Italian seasoning.
Add more olive oil if needed.
Next stop is the air fryer basket.
Just spread them in an even layer.
Then set the air fryer to 350 degrees for 7 to 11 minutes.
Just keep checking them at the 7 minute mark.
And continue cooking them until they are at your crispy level of perfections 🙂
Let Air Fryer Garlic Herb Croutons cool for a few minutes 🙂
And then add them to your favorite salad.
You can store the leftovers for a few days in a sealed container or baggie.
