Tips and Tricks

Cutting the Bread

Use day-old bread for the best texture. Fresh bread can be too soft and may not crisp up as well in the air fryer.

Coating Evenly

Ensure all bread cubes are evenly coated with the butter mixture. Tossing thoroughly helps achieve uniform flavor and crispiness.

Letting the Bread Soak

Letting the bread cubes sit for a couple of minutes after coating allows them to soak up the butter and seasoning, making for more flavorful croutons.

Air Fryer Basket

Avoid overcrowding the air fryer basket. Spread the bread cubes in a single layer to ensure even cooking and crispiness.

Cooking Time

Keep an eye on the croutons during the last few minutes of cooking. Air fryers can vary, and croutons can go from perfectly crispy to burnt quickly.

Cooling Croutons

Transfer the croutons to a paper towel-lined plate immediately after cooking. This helps absorb any excess butter and keeps them crisp.

Storing Croutons

Store leftover croutons in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. Reheat in the air fryer for a few minutes to regain their crispiness if needed.
