What will I need to make French Toast in the Air Fryer

You will need the following ingredients:

  • Thick cut, Brioche bread
  • Large eggs
  • Cinnamon flavored creamer
  • Nutmeg

How to Make Air Fryer French Toast

  • Cut the bread slices in half diagonally and set them aside for now.

  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, creamer, and nutmeg until completely combined. 

  • Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit your air fryer basket and spray it lightly with cooking spray.
  • Dip a piece of bread in the bowl and allow it to soak for 10-15 seconds and then flip and soak for another 10-15 seconds on the other side. 

  • Remove the bread from the bowl with a fork and let it drip for about 5-10 seconds. 
  • Place the prepared bread on the greased parchment paper in the basket. 

  • Repeat steps 4-6 for as many slices of bread as you can, placing them in a single layer in the basket with a slight space between each slice. You will need to do more than 1 batch to avoid overcrowding your air fryer. 
  • Cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-12 minutes or until an even, golden brown color, flipping the bread halfway through so that it browns evenly on each side. 

  • Serve warm with butter and maple syrup, optional.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  •  While I love to use brioche bread, you may use any type of bread that you prefer. Brioche bread tends to have the best flavor that I have found. 
  • I love cinnamon flavored creamer, but you can substitute any creamer that you prefer. You can even use milk if that is what you have on hand. If you are using plain creamer or milk I would add 1 teaspoon of vanilla to give it a nice vanilla flavor.  
  • You can omit the nutmeg altogether or swap it out for cinnamon if you prefer.
