Ingredients

  • 2 slices of bread (your choice of white, whole wheat, or sourdough)

Preparation:

  1. Prepare the Bread:

  • Spread a thin layer of softened butter on both sides of the bread slices.

  • Using a spoon or the back of a knife, press down in the center of each slice to create a shallow well. This will help hold the egg in place.

  1. Crack the Eggs:

  • Carefully crack one egg into the well of each slice of bread. Be sure not to let the egg overflow. If necessary, use a smaller egg or remove some of the egg white.


Cooking:

  1. Preheat the Air Fryer:

  • Preheat your air fryer to 360°F (182°C). Preheating helps ensure even cooking from the start.

  1. Air Fry the Egg Toast:

  • Place the prepared slices of bread with eggs in the air fryer basket in a single layer. If needed, cook in batches to avoid overcrowding.

  • Air fry at 360°F (182°C) for 6-8 minutes, or until the egg whites are set and the yolks are cooked to your desired doneness. For a runny yolk, cook for a shorter time; for a firm yolk, cook a bit longer.

  1. Add Cheese (Optional):

  • If you like, sprinkle grated cheese over the top of the egg toast during the last 1-2 minutes of cooking. This will allow the cheese to melt and become golden.


Serving:

  1. Serve the Egg Toast:

  • Carefully remove the egg toast from the air fryer.

  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Garnish with fresh herbs such as parsley or chives for added flavor and a pop of color.

  • Serve hot, paired with fresh fruit, a side salad, or avocado slices for a complete meal.



Tips and Variations

  • Bread Variations: Use different types of bread such as rye, multigrain, or brioche for varied flavors and textures.

  • Add-Ins: Customize your egg toast by adding ingredients such as diced ham, cooked bacon, or sautéed vegetables to the egg well before cooking.

  • Spices: Sprinkle spices such as paprika, garlic powder, or everything bagel seasoning over the top of the egg before air frying for added flavor.

  • Storage: Egg toast is best enjoyed fresh. However, if you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. Reheat in the air fryer at 350°F (175°C) for 2-3 minutes.
