Easy Air Fryer Toast

  • Versatile and space-saving, air fryers replace the work of a regular oven, a convection oven, a toaster, and a microwave all in one. No wonder they’re so popular!
  • Using the air fryer to make toast is a smart choice for busy mornings or quick cravings. Any model, like a Cuisinart or Ninja, will make toast that comes out hot and crispy and ready to top in minutes!
  • It makes the perfect foundation for favorites like cinnamon toast or avocado toast.

Only 1 Ingredient!

Bread – Technically, any style of bread will make perfect toast in the air fryer. Sourdough, baguettes, ciabatta, and brioche can be cut to any width before toasting (just be sure they’re all the same width if toasting all together). White, multi-grain, whole-grain, and gluten-free bread will toast just as well.

For the best toast, avoid crowding the air fryer and check on it as it cooks so it comes out just the way you like it!

How to Make Air Fryer Toast

So easy, even the kids can make their own!

  1. Place bread slices in a single layer in the air fryer.
  2. Cook until brown, flipping halfway through. Add more time for darker toast.

Pro Tip:

Line the Air Fryer basket with a clean coffee filter to catch crumbs. The toast will still cook properly but cleanup will be a breeze!

Toppings for Toast

  • Toast is always trending and the air fryer makes simple and delicious toast for all your favorite toppings!
  • Besides slathering on a thick pat of butter and your favorite jam, try some peanut butter with sliced bananas and chia seeds, Nutella and strawberries, a drizzle of honey with sliced apples on top, or even a fried egg with a dash of hot sauce. Anything goes on toast!
  • Make a build-your-own breakfast bar with toast in the starring role! Have some sliced air fryer hard-boiled eggs with mayo salt and pepper on top. Make some stuffed avocados to serve alongside for a tasty breakfast or lunch.
