As a mom of two, our mornings are incredibly hectic (to say the least)! My husband leaves quite early for work, so I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting ready for school. Despite our crazy mornings, I always strive to serve delicious breakfasts, and my air fryer has been a game changer.

My Air Fryer Egg Toast is my most recent discovery, and we love them! They resemble the classic “Eggs in a Basket” but are so much easier to put together.

Make an Indent Rather Than a Hole

Most recipes for eggs in a basket call for a hole in the bread (and the hole is where you would crack the egg). However, for my Air Fryer Egg Toast, you will want to create an indent rather than a hole. This gives the egg a little “basket” to sit in and prevents making a mess in your air fryer.

How Do I Make an Indent in My Bread for Air Fryer Egg Toast?

To make the indent in your bread, you must take a mason jar and push the mouth slightly into the center of the bread. Then, use the back of a spoon and push down to create even more of an indent within the circle.

You can top these egg toasts with the following toppings (but of course, the sky’s the limit with garnish possibilities):

Do These Egg Toasts Make Good Leftovers?

This recipe tastes best when it’s fresh. I don’t recommend eating it for later use (so be sure to make the amount that you’ll need).
