Usually, this recipe calls for doubly thick slices of bread topped with evenly spread garlic butter and grilled on a hot grill till you get a golden-brown perfection.

But, I make it with a twist- using a normal slice of white bread and cooking it in an air fryer for immense indulgence.

In case you’re looking to put together an incredible sandwich, a crispy bite to dip in the soup, or a scrummy base to layer with creamy pasta or crunchy salad?

Tips & Variations

Don’t overcrowd the air fryer: In order to achieve excellent slices of Texas toast, you need to let them breathe, and evenly get cooked from all sides. Make sure to not overlap them with more slices, or overstuff the air fryer.

Bread alternatives: There are a myriad of bread alternatives other than white bread. Whole wheat bread, sourdough bread, and ciabatta bread are all great options, or go for the original Texas bread for a more authentic feel.

Used minced garlic: No need to get out of your way and look for garlic powder, you can simply mince some garlic. To raise the bar even more, slightly roast the garlic and then spatter it on the bread.

Layer with cheese: If you’re looking for a more filling meal, a go-to-snack, or an appetizer that would impress your guests, layer the top is a cheese slice or sprinkle shredded cheese before heating the Texas toast in the air fryer.

Don’t overspray the air fryer: As the bread is spread with copious amounts of butter to keep the moisture intact, you don’t need to spray the air fryer at all. It can make the bread soggy, and even alter the flavor for the worst.
