I’ve tried many ways to make toast, but ever since I got the Typhur Dome air fryer, it has completely replaced my toaster, oven, and traditional frying methods.

FAQs about the Air Fryer French Toast Recipe

For making French toast in an air fryer, you can use either parchment paper or aluminum foil in the basket:
Parchment Paper – Ideal for preventing sticking and easy cleanup. Parchment paper can catch drips without blocking airflow if the bread is soggy. Spray lightly with cooking oil to prevent sticking.
Aluminum Foil – This can be used if you’re concerned about mess from extra liquid. Ensure it doesn’t cover the entire base of the basket to allow for air circulation. Secure the foil so it doesn’t shift during cooking.
