Instant Vortex Air Fryer Croutons

Instant Vortex Air Fryer Croutons

I LOVE homemade croutons!  I figured out that the Vortex Air Fryer can make croutons in minutes and they are super yummy!

I used my homemade sourdough bread for this batch. I keep it easy, this batch was nothing more than a few tablespoons of EVOO and some Slap Ya Mama!

Seriously I put this stuff on everything! Check your local seafood stores (if you have them), they usually have this in stock. If not, you can get a few canisters for around $8 on Amazon. A little goes a long way so these will last you a LONG time!

Coat the bread pieces in EVOO and seasoning and Air Fry for 2 minutes at 390′. Flip and cook an additional minute if necessary!
