  • 150g salted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh continental parsley
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp sea salt flakes
  • 300g packet of crumpets, halved
  • 100g (1 cup) pre-grated 3 cheese blend


  1. Prepare Garlic Butter: In a bowl, combine the softened butter, finely chopped parsley, crushed garlic cloves, and sea salt flakes. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated, creating a flavorful garlic herb butter.
  2. Spread Garlic Butter: Generously spread teaspoonfuls of the garlic herb butter over each halved crumpet, ensuring that each surface is coated with the delicious mixture.
  3. Add Cheese: Sprinkle a generous pinch of the pre-grated cheese blend over half of the garlic-buttered crumpet halves, creating a layer of gooey cheese.
  4. Create Sandwiches: Place the remaining garlic-buttered crumpet halves on top of the cheese-covered halves, creating crumpet sandwiches.
  5. Arrange in Air Fryer: Line the air fryer basket with foil for easy cleanup, then place the crumpet sandwiches, cut side down, in the basket. Ensure they are arranged in a single layer with space between each one.
  6. Top with Cheese: Sprinkle the remaining grated cheese over the top of the crumpet sandwiches, ensuring each one is generously coated.
  7. Air Fry: Set the air fryer to 180°C (356°F) and cook the crumpet sandwiches for approximately 8 minutes, or until they are golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  8. Finish with Garlic Butter: Once cooked, brush the remaining garlic herb butter over the tops of the hot crumpets for an extra burst of flavor.
  9. Serve: Transfer the cheesy garlic crumpets to a serving platter and serve them hot, allowing everyone to enjoy the gooey, savory goodness.
