Why you'll love air fryer toast!
Quick & Easy - Air Fryer toast is a super quick breakfast or snack option! Using the air fryer makes it super easy to make, and you're guaranteed golden toast every time.
Save Time - You can fit up to four slices of bread into the air fryer vs. only two in a toaster. This is why it's great for busy mornings!
Allergy Safe - Using an air fryer vs. a toaster can eliminate the fear around cross contamination for those that have serious gluten allergies. You can dedicate the air fryer to gluten-free cooking!
To make this super easy air fryer toast recipe you'll need freshly sliced bread and an air fryer! (That's it!)
Air Fryer Options
I actually have two styles of air fryers and recommend both depending on what fits best with your lifestyle.
Basket Style Air Fryer
The first type of air fryer I have is what is shown in this post - a basket style air fryer. This air fryer is portable and can be stored in a pantry or cabinet.
Oven Style Air Fryer
The second style air fryer I have is my Ninja Foodi Air Fryer Oven. This appliance is bigger and sits on my kitchen counter.
This appliance can air fry, toast, bake, or dehydrate and flips up to save on counter space when it's not in use. (I use it as an air fryer and toaster the most.)
NOTE: When I air fry toast in my Ninja Foodi, I use the wire rack instead of the baking tray. (Both come with it.)
🍴Step by Step Instructions
Step 1: Preparing Bread
Start by adding three pieces of bread in a single layer on the air fryer tray. (Leave space between each slice.)
Step 2: Air Frying Toast
For best results, cook at 400 degrees for about 3-4 minutes. (Or until golden brown.)
Step 3: Serving
Serve hot and top with your favorite toast toppings!
You can enjoy your plain toast with a variety of toppings! Butter, Cream Cheese, Ghee, Peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter, or apple butter are all great options.
You can also top the toast with fresh fruit or a nut-free chocolate spread.
One of my favorite toppings is a quick and easy homemade "jam." To make, microwave frozen berries until hot. Mash hot berries and spread over toast!
For a savory option, try avocado toast, cheese toast, or toast with eggs! (Fried eggs or scrambled eggs work great.)
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! It's quick and yields great results every time.
I had my air fryer set to 400 degrees.
In my opinion, yes! They are so versatile. You can make pretty much anything in an air fryer that you would a toaster or toaster oven.
- I would suggest not adding toppings on the toast until it comes out of the air fryer. (Unless you're making pizza toast or cheese toast!)
- If you're using homemade bread, I believe the thickness of the slice matters. Do not cut too thin or it will get burnt or too crispy! Plus, thicker slices hold more toppings.
- Only toast a few pieces of bread at a time. Do not overcrowd the air fryer.
How to store leftovers
I would recommend only air frying the amount of toast you plan to eat at that time because it's best served hot!
If you have leftover toast, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
To reheat, air fry for 1-2 minutes until warm.
