Although store-bought croutons come in a resealable bag, they still get stale quick. Homemade are simple to make and taste much better. I started making them in the oven but if you turn your back for a minute they can go from soft to burnt. I needed a low-maintenance method so I came up with this air fryer recipe that works perfectly every single time.

  • Place bread cubes in a large mixing bowl. Whisk parsley, garlic powder, and seasoned salt into the melted butter and pour over bread cubes. Toss bread cubes with a rubber spatula until evenly coated. Let sit for 2 minutes for butter to absorb.

  • Place bread in the basket of the air fryer and cook for 4 minutes. Toss with a spatula and cook for 2 minutes more. Transfer croutons to a paper towel-lined plate until ready to use.

Theae were delicious! I used Oatnut bread instead of white, so they looked darker, but my husband and 17-year-old loved them! They crisped up a bit after they were done and sat out (about 1 hour). Read More

These were delicious! I've made them twice, and cooked them slower the second time, as they dissolved in the soup the first time. I think I'd like to leave the bread out to dry out a little bit first the next time. I'll be doing this again and again! Read More
