Step by Step Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (177°C) for about 2-3 minutes. The moderate temperature allows the toast to warm through and crisp up without burning.

  2. Arrange the slices of garlic Texas toast in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Avoid overlapping the slices to ensure even cooking and crispiness.

  3. Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the garlic Texas toast is golden brown and crispy to your liking. There's no need to flip the slices halfway through unless your air fryer model cooks unevenly.

  4. Serve immediately while hot and crispy. The garlic Texas toast is best enjoyed fresh from the air fryer, offering a warm, buttery, and garlicky complement to your dishes.
