Scroll down for the recipe card for this air fryer egg toast recipe, or read on for all the details.
- Bread: use a thick slice of sandwich bread.
- Egg: use one egg per slice of bread.
- Cheese: You will need around ¼ cup of shredded cheese per serving. Shredded cheddar cheese, jack, or Swiss cheese are all great options.
- Seasoning: mustard is my favorite seasoning for a baked egg dish, but you can also add herbs like parsley or basil.
The recipe below is for a basic quiche, but you can add other fillings if you like. Add up to ¼ cup per serving. Here are some that I like:
- Chopped tomato, spinach and feta
- Cooked bacon bits and mushrooms
- Cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
- Ham and Swiss cheese
You will also need some individual pie pans, approximately 4-4½ inches/ 10-12cm in diameter.
Step 1: Mix the filling. Whisk the egg and mustard together in a large measuring jug, then add the cheese and mix in until well combined.
Step 2: Prepare the bread crust. Lightly grease and line the pie pans with a slice of bread. Press the bread down firmly into the pan so that it molds to the pan shape. If you prefer you can cut the crusts off the bread, but I like the crunch, so I leave them on.
Step 3: Preheat the air fryer to 320°F/ 160°C. Then pour the egg mixture into the prepared bread-lined pan.
Step 4: Bake. Bake the bread quiche in the air fryer for 20 minutes. Cook times will vary with different air fryer models, and with factors like the exact dimensions of your pie pan and how much filling you have. The quiche is done when the crust and the top are golden brown, and it has reached 160°F/ 72°C in the center. Check with an instant-read thermometer if you are unsure.
Step 5: Leave to set. Once you have removed the toast quiche from the air fryer, do not cut into it straight away – it needs time to set. Leave it for at least 5-10 minutes to set.
