This air fryer breakfast is as easy as it is delicious!

air fryer breakfast

All hail the air fryer, one of the most magical kitchen tools in all the land!

It’s no secret I’m obsessed with my air fryer! I use it almost every day even if it’s just to reheat up leftovers because it’s so darn convenient. My love for the handy kitchen appliance always has me looking for new hacks and tips specifically for air fryer cooking.

In fact, I recently spotted this cool trick to toast a slice of bread with an egg and bacon on top all at the same time! After seeing this Tasty Facebook video, I knew right away it was something genius to try!

Cooking breakfast is my downfall.

To be honest, I cannot get it together for weekday breakfasts and am not great at cooking or prepping them during weekdays for my family. We all wake up at different times, and everyone is pretty much on their own to toast a waffle, pour some cereal, dish up yogurt, or make something simple like that.

This air fryer bacon and egg toast is one of the easiest weekday breakfast ideas I’ve ever seen!

I tried this hack of cooking bacon and eggs on toast, and it’s actually pretty handy if you’re in a rush. You can’t beat a warm complete breakfast in under ten minutes! My kids would definitely prefer a bacon-and-egg-type meal in the morning, and this is actually something they can make on their own, too! Plus, it’s so much healthier than a sugary bowl of cereal.

Tips for making the best bacon and egg toast in the air fryer:

  • Cook times can vary and you may need to experiment a couple of times using your air fryer and specific ingredients. It took me a few times to test cook times and temps in my Power XL air fryer, and 9 minutes at 340 degrees turned out to be the perfect cook time for this breakfast hack.
  • I’d use a thinner cut bacon for this recipe, or consider precooking your slice of bacon for a few minutes before adding it to the toast and egg.
  • If you’re super particular about how much you want your egg cooked, just know that the egg won’t have a runny yolk in order to cook the bacon long enough to be fully cooked. I still think it tasted yummy and I’m a fan! You could also opt to add the egg halfway through to let the bacon cook a bit first.

Here’s what my teammate Jenna said about this air fryer breakfast hack:

“This is the most amazing breakfast hack ever! My kids’ favorite food in the world is bacon, eggs, and toast. We made it most mornings, and it is a frequent dinner request, too. Usually, I make the bacon in the air fryer, the eggs on the stove, and the toast in the toaster but with this fun recipe, I can do it all at once using ONE appliance! Yay! I was honestly expecting some sort of a mess, but it worked and held up beautifully!”

    Just had a baby and looking for ways for easy and quick meals! Excited to try this!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Congrats on the new little one! I think you’ll love this!

  2. Georgia

    i like this but instead of the bacon oil draining to the bottom of the airfryer it is absorbed by the bread 🙂

    • lexiloowho

      Sit the bacon next to it while it cooks and put it on top when it’s done!

  3. Jim Trebowski

    I’m going to try this but wait until halfway through to add the egg. I like my yolks runny lol.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ya I think that sounds like a plan!

  4. Laura Steffens

    Does the bread get greasy with the bacon cooking on top of it?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Nope -there honestly wasn’t very much grease from one piece I think. It’s perfectly not greasy.

  5. Annie2020

    Tried it.. good!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay! Awesome!

  6. Ashley

    I’m obsessed with these! Delicious and so easy and minimum cleanup! Thank you for sharing!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay!!! I’ so glad you enjoy this too! We’ve made it over and over as a quick breakfast- yum!

  7. AlissaB

    I saw this on Pinterest a few months ago and my husband & I love it! It’s crazy how much better it all tastes together.

  8. Holly

    Keep those simple air fryer recipes coming!!!

    Be careful with the nonstick coatings folks. Some say they are quite toxic.

    • Owl

      Yes, I can’t have them in my home as I have pet birds, and it is too toxic for them. Some air fryers use ceramic instead of nonstick, though – like the Foodi, I believe.

  10. didi18

    Sounds easy and delicious. Thanks! I’m going to try it with frozen waffles. Giving it some sweetness. 😋

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      ohhhh this could be epic! Smart!

  11. Margaret

    I tried it with some cheeses on top at the end! Yumm! My eggs turned out a little runny still. So I’ll just have to play with the timing and heat of my air fryer so I don’t over toast the bread. Thanks for the post!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Sure! Yes one you get the timing to how you like things its great!

  12. heidi

    How long to cook if you want the egg yok hard. i don’t like runny eggs

  13. Christine

    I just tried this and I found I needed to add a extra minute. Egg white was still runny. It’s a trial and error process because I just recently got my air fryer so we’re literally trying everything.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes each machine may be slightly different, and i love how easy it is to just open abd check on things! Happy air frying!

  14. Terrene

    Didn’t work for me egg just slide down from the bread and ruined my air fryer

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I’m so sorry to hear that, Terrene!
