  • Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees F.
    Slice half of a loaf of french bread in half lengthwise then cut into chunks (your preferred serving size). Set aside.
    In a small mixing bowl combine softened butter and garlic with a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
    Spread the butter mixture evenly on the bread. Then sprinkle with a few dried parsley flakes.
    Place the buttered bread in the air fryer. *Depending on the size of your sir fryer you may need to do this in batches.*
