air fryer egg toast

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 5-6 minutes
Total Time: 10-11 minutes
Servings: 1
Intensity: Easy


  • 1 slice of bread (white, whole wheat, or your choice)
  • 1 large egg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings: shredded cheese, cooked bacon or ham, sliced tomatoes, avocado slices, chopped herbs (such as parsley or chives)


  1. Preheat Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (175°C) for about 3-5 minutes.
  2. Prepare Bread Slice: Place the slice of bread on a flat surface or cutting board. You can lightly toast the bread in a toaster beforehand if you prefer a crispier base for your egg toast.
  3. Create Egg Well: Use a cookie cutter or a knife to cut a hole in the center of the bread slice, creating a well for the egg.
  4. Crack Egg into Well: Carefully crack a large egg into the center well of the bread slice. Make sure the egg stays within the confines of the bread slice.
  5. Season Egg: Sprinkle salt and pepper over the egg to season it according to your taste.
  6. Air Fry Egg Toast:
    • Lightly grease the air fryer basket or tray with cooking spray or oil.
    • Place the prepared egg toast in the air fryer basket or on the tray.
    • Air fry the egg toast at 350°F (175°C) for 5-6 minutes, or until the egg whites are set and the yolk is cooked to your desired doneness. Adjust the cooking time slightly if you prefer a runnier or firmer yolk.
  7. Add Optional Toppings: If using, sprinkle shredded cheese over the egg toast during the last minute of cooking to melt the cheese. You can also add cooked bacon or ham, sliced tomatoes, avocado slices, or chopped herbs as desired.
  8. Serve: Once cooked, carefully remove the air-fried egg toast from the air fryer. Serve hot and enjoy immediately.

Note: The cooking time may vary slightly depending on your air fryer model and the desired doneness of the egg. Monitor the egg toast closely towards the end of cooking to prevent overcooking or undercooking the egg.

Enjoy your delicious and customizable air fryer egg toast for a tasty breakfast or snack!
