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