Air Fryer English Muffins
Who knew you could toast english muffins in the air fryer?!? Well, you can and it’s brilliant! No more trying to figure out which number on the toaster to create the best crispy edges without burning. The air fryer toasts them to perfection every time.
And all you have to do is split an english muffin, lay it in the air fryer basket, and cook for 3 minutes! That’s it! The best part is it’s no mess and keeps your counter crumb free. Once you try this easy recipe you just might get rid of your toaster!
Toasted air fryer english muffins are delicious with just butter or topped with jam. They also make a great egg sandwich or crust for mini pizzas.
How To Make English Muffins In The Air Fryer
You only need one ingredient to make this recipe! Just english muffins! I like to use Thomas’ but any brand will work perfectly and the directions are exactly the same.
Start by heating up your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit if needed. Note, that whether or not you need to preheat your air fryer is dependent upon your model. So just check the manual of your air fryer to see if this step is necessary. If not then just skip it and move on to the next step.
Now, take an English muffin out of the package, split it in half place, and place it in the air fryer basket. You must lay it flat for it to properly toast. So if you are cooking more than one at a time be sure not to crowd the air fryer basket.
Then put the basket into the air fry to cook for 3 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Yet, when the 3 minutes are up if the english muffin isn’t toasted enough to your liking just put it back in the air fryer to cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.
How long you toast your air fryer english muffins is totally based on how you like it. The most important thing is to set the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. At this temperature, it creates the best crispy edges while still keeping the muffin soft inside.
