Part Baked Rolls

There are some things that we grew up on and we can’t remember the first time we ate them, just that they are the best comfort food in the world.

Well, that is me with part baked rolls.

I love how quick and easy you can cook them and it tastes just like you have made homemade bread.

But of course, you have cheated and added a part baked baguette to your oven instead. It then comes out crispy and a little butter that melts as it serves, is the best bread creation since sliced bread.

Prior to leaving Portugal, we would buy them from Overseas Portugal, which is the Iceland for the Expats and grab it when it was discounted.

Back in England we have tried Aldi, Tesco and Morrison’s part baked bread, as well as heading to the UK Iceland for some rolls too.

Today, I wanted to show you, not only how to cook part baked rolls in the air fryer, but how to transform them into the best warm sausage sandwiches ever.


Plus, as well as our free newsletter, we also have a free air fryer mini course. It is ideal for air fryer beginners or those that want to get more confident with their air fryer. The free course runs for 5 days with a new lesson delivered each day to your inbox.

What Is Part Baked Bread?

Have you not had part baked bread before? Then OMG you have been missing out! Part baked bread is bread that you have purchased from a supermarket, that is just how it sounds, the bread has been prepped and almost cooked.

Its like you are using the air fryer to reheat your bread, rather than feeling like you are cooking bread just from dough.

Also, because it is partly baked, it has a much longer shelf life compared to regular bread.

You can also buy it as:

  • Part baked bread rolls
  • Part baked bread
  • Part baked baguette

Though because of how wonderfully crispy it goes, many people call it part baked crusty rolls.

I don’t advise doing a part baked baguette though, as it will not fit in many brands of air fryers.

Instead opt for part baked bread rolls, like we are doing today.

Can You Cook Part Baked Rolls In An Air Fryer?

Yes, you can, and they become the best part baked crusty rolls that you have ever tried.

That is because the air fryer does a fantastic job of making them crispy and its in less time and they taste better, than those cooked in the oven.

You can also use the air fryer to reheat your already cooked crusty bread too.

Can You Freeze Part Baked Rolls?

Yes, you sure can. This is fantastic for when you buy Iceland part baked rolls, they are at their use by date, and you will not have chance to use them in time.

I recommend just freezing them in the bag that they were sold to you in. Then you can defrost your part bake rolls or cook them from frozen when you want to eat them.

Can You Use Out Of Date Part Baked Bread?

No, I don’t recommend it. I have found that sometimes even part baked bread on its use by date can often carry mould and not smell very nice.

I.e. one of those moments, when you think, yuck that has gone off!!!

I recommend if you can’t consume part baked bread or part baked bread rolls, within its date, that you freeze it for later.

What Is The Best Part Baked Bread?

The best part baked bread that I have tried has been from Aldi. I have tried Tesco, Morrison’s, Iceland, and Aldi and compared the four of them.

Aldi has always come out on top and has tasted the best.

Rolls – You can use a full pack of part baked bread rolls, or you can just do 1 or 2 of them. I recommend not overfilling the air fryer though and if you have a lot to do, then do them in batches.

Butter – Is it me or does everything taste better when you add butter? When you add the butter to these warm crusty bread rolls, the butter melts from the warm bread and they are amazing.

Oil – If you would like your bread rolls super crispy, then I would recommend a spray with extra virgin olive oil. This will help crisp them up and stop them having an anaemic look.

Optional – Who doesn’t love sausage and bacon sandwiches? Or maybe you like yours with a fried egg too? Beyond using this bread for soup, they are fantastic for warm sandwiches. You can do sausage, bacon, or whatever is your thing, or just serve them as they are.

Then for the kitchen gadgets that we have used in this recipe for part baked bread it has just been our Philips Air Fryer XL. We have this one and its wonderful for many types of air fryer breads.

How To Make Part Baked Bread In Air Fryer?

air fryer part baked bread step by step
  • Plan. Decide if you plan to make any extras for your part baked rolls first. For example, if making sausages you will want to cook them first as they have a much longer cook time compared to the rolls. Though we have two air fryers and cheated, and cooked sausages in one and bread in the other.
  • Cook. Load partly baked bread rolls into the air fryer, spray with extra virgin olive oil, and cook for 6 minutes at 180c/360f.
  • Beeps. When the air fryer beeps, slice lengthways and spread with butter. Then add in just cooked sausages (or bacon too) and then serve.

Or if it is Christmas, you want a family brunch or you are having your Sunday morning sausage sandwiches, you can serve them altogether on a plate like this and let everyone dig in.

What To Serve With Part Baked Bread?

Yes, my first thought is air fryer sausages or air fryer bacon, but you might be thinking about soup or our air fryer tuna melt.

For soups with part baked bread, for me it has to be a comforting bowl of soup and not a diet one.

Such as slow cooker leek and potato soup, instant pot leftover brisket soup, or soup maker beer cheese soup.

Swaps. You can mix and match your sandwich fillings. I am talking to you bacon!!! Or you can serve them just with butter and have them as a great side for a hearty soup, stew, or casserole.
Time. Note the cook time is 6 minutes if you are just cooking the partly baked crusty bread. And that its 14 minutes because of cooking the sausages too. We used an air fryer for the sausages and one for the bread, but if you have one air fryer (normal people!!!) then do the sausages first, then the bread.
