Quick and easy meals to start your day
Perhaps one of the hardest habits to form is preparing a satisfying breakfast before the start of the work day. Every morning is a battle between waking up and your desire to sleep, and that often means that breakfast time is sacrificed in exchange for a few more minutes in bed. That said, here is a list of quick and tasty breakfast recipes you can whip up with your favorite kitchen appliance, the air fryer.
To pull together this list of air fryer breakfast recipes, we turned to our favorite recipe source: TikTok. Here are the best dishes we’ve found and how to recreate them at home.
6 Delicious Air Fryer Breakfast Recipes
Air Fried Breakfast Tortilla Recipe:
Derived from @airfrywithmethis recipe for an air fryer breakfast ply (or tortilla) basically combines scrambled eggs, cheese, and sausage in a wedge wrap.
Cook the sausage (or protein of your choice) in the air fryer, then add it to the tortilla, fold it up, and put it back in the air fryer. Breakfast, sorted.
Air Fryer Breakfast Cookies:
We love breakfast cookies, as evidenced by this post about Jennifer Garner’s take on the dish. TikTok creator @lainiecooks shared her brekkie recipe made with bananas, oats, peanut butter, chia seeds and chocolate chips.
For our gluten-free friends, note that Lainie Cooks uses gluten-free oats in this recipe, so this is definitely an option for you.
