Bagels have become a staple food for breakfast. They’re quick, easy, and can be enjoyed in many different ways!

🥯How To Toast A Bagel In The Air Fryer

A note on time and temperature: Every air fryer is different and no bagel is the same. This means that the time it takes to toast your bagel will depend on your individual air fryer and the size of your bagel. A good starting point is 325F for 6 minutes. Adjust if necessary.

Preheat your air fryer: Turn the air fryer to 350F and let it preheat for 3-5 minutes.

Toast the bagel: Place the bagel cut side up at the bottom of the air fryer basket in a single layer. Set the timer for 6 minutes.

Flip halfway: Using tongs, flip the bagel over to the smooth side and air fry for an additional 2-3 minutes depending on how toasted you like your bagel.

Remove and serve: Remove with tongs and serve with your favorite spreads!
