Air Fryer Crumpet Garlic Bread

Air Fryer Crumpet Garlic Bread takes the beloved simplicity of crumpets and transforms them into a delightful savory treat with a modern twist. Imagine golden-brown crumpets, their nooks and crannies infused with garlic butter and herbs, crisped to perfection in the air fryer.


This fragrant blend infuses the crumpets with layers of savory flavor as it seeps into every crevice.


As the crumpets emerge from the air fryer, they are generously brushed or spooned with the garlic and herb butter mixture. The heat from the crumpets melts the butter, allowing it to meld with the crumpet’s texture and flavors. The garlic adds a robust, aromatic kick, while the herbs contribute a fresh, earthy note that balances the richness of the butter.


Each bite offers a delightful contrast of textures and tastes. The crispy edges of the crumpet give way to a soft, buttery center that’s infused with the savory goodness of garlic and herbs. It’s a harmonious blend of simplicity and sophistication, perfect for a quick snack or a flavorful addition to any meal.


Air Fryer Crumpet Garlic Bread is not just a snack; it’s a testament to creativity in the kitchen, showcasing how a humble crumpet can be transformed into a gourmet delight with a few simple ingredients and the magic of air frying. Whether enjoyed on its own or as a side dish, this innovative take on garlic bread is sure to impress with its irresistible flavor and texture.
