What is Air Fryer Bacon and Eggs Toast?

This classic combination of bacon, eggs, and toast emerged in the early 20th century, back to the 1920s and 1930s, spurred by effective marketing campaigns from bacon producers. These campaigns highlighted bacon and eggs as wholesome and substantial, making them an integral part of the morning meal. Toast, with its simplicity and versatility, became the perfect companion to this duo, creating a breakfast that was easy to prepare and enjoy. In Japan, a similar breakfast might include rice instead of toast, while in Australia, avocado is often added to the mix.

This air fryer recipe is perfect for those who have little time in the morning. The preparation is straightforward, and the cooking time is short, making it an efficient breakfast option.

Tips to Get the Best Air Fryer Bacon and Eggs Toast

  • Remember to pre-heat the air fryer for about 3-5 minutes, to ensure that your toast cooks up nicely and gets crispy.
  • Opt for thicker slices of bread, such as sourdough or Texas toast: these will hold the eggs and bacon and prevent the bread from getting too soggy.
  • The circle made with the bacon needn't have large gaps, to prevent the egg from leaking out during cooking time.
  • To help keep the egg in place, additionally, you can also create a small well in the bread before pouring down the egg.
  • Remember to keep an eye on the toast while it's cooking in the air fryer, as models vary and their temperatures and cooking times may differ.
  • Avoid overcrowding the air fryer, because air needs to circulate to make sure that each toast gets cooked evenly.

Is it Best to Put Foil When Cooking These Toasts in the Air Fryer?

No! Using foil under the toast as it's cooking is not recommended, as it could obstruct air circulation and prevent even cooking. It's better to place the toast directly on the air fryer's basket.
