How To Make Air Fryer Strawberry Shortcake French Toast
Start by coating your pan (any oven-safe pan is usually air fryer safe) with cooking spray. Cut your bread into about 1-inch pieces.
In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese and sugar.
Then spread one side of the bread with the cream cheese/sugar mixture. Add another piece on top to make a sandwich and press down.
Then in s small mixing bowl, add the eggs, half and half, and vanilla and mix well. Pour over the bread, and then cover and refrigerate overnight.
Add about 1 tablespoon of butter on top of each French toast sandwich. Set in the air fryer oven for 5 minutes, at 330 degrees F (air fryer setting); after the time is up, flip the French Toast and air fry for another 5 minutes.
Top with some whipped cream and strawberries.
- If you are making this in an Air Fryer Basket Model or Ninja Foodi, Instant Pot Crisp Lid, or Mealhty Lid, add a piece of parchment paper or spry your basket iht cooking spray, so the bread doesn’t stick.
- Depending on the air fryer you own, you may need to flip halfway during the cooking process.
- Serve with whipped cream and fresh strawberries, for a great healthy air fryer breakfast.
What Bread To Use?
I love French Bread for this recipe, but you can really easily bread. You will find that crusty bread, such as French Bread, will absorb the egg mixture better than soft bread.
Some other great options are:
- Sour Dough Bread
- Artisan Bread
- Stale Sandwich Bread
You can really make this your favorite with a few tweaks,
Gluten-Free: Use Gluten-Free Bread
Dairy-Free: Use dairy-free alternatives. Some great options are Oat or Almond Milk. You can even use Coconut Milk.
Other: You can easily use any fresh fruit of the season. Some great options include: Blueberries, Blackberries, Slikced Bananas, and Caramelized Apples (or Bananas)
Today, I went with classic whipped cream and sliced strawberries, but there are so many possibilities.
Some of my favorites are dusted with confectioner’s sugar, maple syrup, or even homemade whipped cream!
