Dip each piece of bread into the mixture, and let the bread soak for about 30 seconds, so the batter becomes absorbed. Gently shake the bread to remove any excess.

Air Fryer Pan with French Toast inside

Spray your pan generously with olive oil: place the french toast in the prepared pan. Air fry for 3 minutes at 320 degrees F. Flip them over and do another 3 minutes.

TIPS FOR MAKING FRENCH TOAST

  • While I used a pan, you do not have to. You can make several batches using a pan, and you do not have to clean the air fryer after. Just rinse off the baking dish, and you are ready to go for the next batch.
  • If you want to use heavy cream for a thicker batter, that will work out perfectly.
  • I have made this recipe using lactose-free milk, but you can use oak, almond, or even soy milk, as a substitute.
  • Check on your French Toast frequently while cooking up since all air fryers cook at slightly different times.

How To Store Leftovers

This is an excellent recipe if you want to make some ahead of time. To store leftovers, place them into an airtight container, which will last for about 2 to 3 days.

You can reheat them in either the microwave or air fryer.

How to Freeze Air Fryer French Toast

Suppose you want to make this ahead of time. I often double the recipe and then freeze one batch for a later date.

Let the French Toast cool to room temperature, and then place it onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the freezer until the French toast is frozen.

Remove from the baking sheet and place them into a Freezer Bag. 

How to cook frozen french toast in the Air Fryer

To cook frozen french toast in the Air Fyre, place the Frozen French toast into the air fryer basket and air fry for 5 minutes at 400 degrees F, air fryer sitting. 

For best results, flip halfway during the cooking process to cook both sides evenly.

Best Bread For Air Fryer French Toast

While you can use French toast bread, I find that the best bread is Brioche, French Bagueet, and challah bread. 

Today, I used a simple white sandwich bread, which is perfect since you always have it on hand.

Toppings For French Toast

While you can serve this up plain, some great toppings are:

  • Maple Syrup
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Fruit
