AIR FRYER FRENCH TOAST STICKS

Did you know you can make sweet recipes in the air fryer just like you make those seafood, chicken or vegetable recipes? 

The air fryer is such a versatile kitchen gadget and is great making today’s easy breakfast idea for Air Fryer French Toast Sticks. 

I just love air fryer recipes for a few reasons: little clean-up, healthier than frying food and the quick cook-time. 

This is such an easy recipe that you can make ahead of time and freeze for later or make on a weekend morning for your kids. 

So many of you love this Air Fryer Cod, Air Fryer Mediterranean Chicken Thighs and these Air Fryer Twice Baked Potatoes. 

But you guys need to try using your air fryer to make these Air Fryer Donut Holes or today’s Air Fryer French Toast. 

My whole family goes crazy for these french toast sticks but you could also use this recipe with regular french toast by keeping the bread whole instead of slicing it.

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN AIR FRYER FRENCH TOAST RECIPE?

BREAD: You can use any bread slices  of your choice. I tend to like the thicker Texas Toast or french bread, as I think they make nice big french toasts sticks. 

EGGS

HEAVY CREAM: The cream in the milk mixture gives the french toast an extra sweet taste but you can also use any milk you like. I suggest not using skim milk as I think it is too watery. 

BROWN SUGAR: You can also use white sugar in place of the brown sugar. 

BUTTER: I suggest using real butter not margarine.

  • For best results, don’t overcrowd the air fryer.
