How do you make air fryer French toast?
Air Fryer French Toast is a delicious recipe for a 10 minute breakfast – with just a couple of easy steps. Depending on the size of your air fryer and the number of people – you may have to make these in batches.
- In a shallow dish, whisk eggs, cream, salt, vanilla and cinnamon
- Grab your thick slices of bread and dip each piece of bread into the custard mixture and coat both sides letting the bread soak for 5 seconds or so

If you’re going to make bacon with this great recipe for french toast – you should start the bacon five minutes ahead of time. If you’re making sausage links (or patties) – you could pop them in when you flip your french toast since they’re already pre-cooked.
Can you make air fryer french toast sticks from the freezer section of the grocery store?
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.
