Ingredients and Variations

Bread – While any bread works for French toast, thicker, denser slices like brioche, challah, or even a few thick slices of your favorite baguette are perfect for soaking up the sweet, creamy egg mixture. For an elegant dessert, use sliced cinnamon rolls to make French toast and then serve with vanilla ice cream and warm caramel sauce!

Batter – A thicker batter can be made with half-and-half or cream and for an extra custardy texture, toss in an extra egg. Feel free to add a little bit of ground nutmeg, ground ginger, or some allspice to the cinnamon and brown sugar for an extra flavorful and fragrant French toast!

How to Make Air Fryer French Toast

  1. Preheat the air fryer and line the bottom with parchment paper and a little cooking spray.
  2. Whisk the batter ingredients in a shallow container and dip both sides of the bread into the mixture.
  3. Cook in the air fryer (as per the recipe below) until the outside is lightly fried and golden brown, flipping halfway through.

Reheating Leftovers

Keep leftover air fryer French toast in a covered container for up to 4 days or freeze it in a zippered bag for up to two months. For best results, reheat frozen slices in the air fryer or in the toaster.
