How to Make French Toast Sticks in an Air Fryer
To make French toast sticks in an air fryer, you will need the following ingredients:
- bread of your choice
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup of milk
- 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp of nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup of butter or margarine, melted
- 1/4 cup of sugar
To make French toast sticks in an air fryer, start by preheating the air fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. While the air fryer is preheating, prepare the French toast sticks. Cut the bread into sticks, about 1/2 inch thick. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla extract. Dip the sticks into the egg mixture, coating both sides. Place the coated sticks in the air fryer and cook for 8 minutes. Flip the sticks halfway through cooking. When the French toast sticks are golden brown and crispy, remove them from the air fryer and let cool. In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, sugar, and cinnamon. Dip the cooled French toast sticks into the butter mixture and enjoy!
Tips for the Best French Toast Sticks
For the best French toast sticks, be sure to use a good quality air fryer. A low-quality air fryer may not cook the sticks evenly or may not get them as crispy as desired. To get extra crispy French toast sticks, try brushing them with melted butter or oil before cooking. Lastly, be sure to preheat the air fryer before cooking the sticks. This will ensure that they cook evenly.
French toast sticks are a great breakfast or snack option. Serve them with a variety of toppings such as fresh fruit, maple syrup, powdered sugar, or cinnamon sugar. They also pair nicely with a side of bacon or sausage. Enjoy!
