Air Fryer French Toast is my new favorite breakfast! It’s super easy and the best part is – you can make your sausage or bacon at the same time!
I’ve always loved French Toast – really it’s a syrup delivery tool – right? Ever since I hit 40 – I only use real maple syrup. The difference is amazing and it’s perfect with this air fryer French toast recipe – might as well splurge!
Can you make french toast in an air fryer?
Yes! Most definitely! I was surprised that it browned and cooked through just like it would on a stove top. The plus here is that you’re not using any oil! That means you can have more butter on your French toast.
What type of bread is best for French toast?
A lot of fancy French toasts are made with Brioche – which is really like a richer style of sandwich bread made with butter and egg. When I’m making French toast at home – I just try and have a thicker bread – my favorite is Sara Lee Artesano – I use it for grilled cheese too!
What’s in French Toast batter?
My favorite French toast batter is eggs, heavy cream (or milk), salt, vanilla and a bit of cinnamon. How many eggs? I use 1 egg for 1-2 pieces of bread. Beat that with a whisk – I like these silicone whisks. Once your batter is ready, you’re ready to air fry!
How do you make air fryer French toast?
After dipping your bread in the batter, lay in the air fryer with at least an inch of space all around. Air fry at 400 degrees for four minutes, then flip and go for four minutes more.
If you’re going to make bacon with it – you should start the bacon five minutes ahead of time. If you’re making sausage – you could pop that in when you flip your french toast since they’re already pre-cooked.
Can you air fry frozen french toast sticks?
Yes! These are super simple as well – just pop them in the air fryer at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. These are pre-cooked so no need to flip – just reheating them. Serve with syrup.
