Frozen French toast sticks in an air fryer are great options for busy mornings when you need a quick breakfast. This fuss free meal is ready in just a few minutes and kid-friendly.
I find using the air fryer is the best way to make frozen french toast sticks. You get just the right level of crispy edges with soft center. It is much quicker than using a regular oven / traditional oven.
Pop in the air fryer, drizzle a little maple syrup and/or other toppings and you are good to go! Pair with some greek yogurt and you have a great breakfast ready for the whole family.
There are many pre-packaged brands available, but they all take approximately the same amount of time.
Air fryer frozen toaster strudels are another quick breakfast idea!

Frozen French toast sticks: Only ingredient needed! In case you are looking for a corn syrup free brand, I’ve found Farm Rich brand. It also happens to be eggless in case you looking for a brand without egg mixture.
Topping Ideas and optional Ingredients
Maple syrup: honey, agave are other options.
Spices: Ideas include a dash of cinnamon, cardamom powder, pumpkin pie spice or even chai spice
Olive oil spray: Optional. I find it is not needed and use parchment paper but if you like an extra crispy taste, a spritz of olive oil will help. For a more indulgent treat, use a little butter!
Add your favorite toppings: powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, nut butter, fresh berries or other fresh fruit, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce or mini chocolate chips

For best results, I recommend flipping halfway through, but not necessary
