Can you toast English muffins in an air fryer? If you’re looking for a way to toast English muffins without a toaster, then the air fryer is your answer! The air fryer can easily toast English muffins in 5 minutes or less!

An English muffin is a small, round, flat yeast-leavened bread commonly sliced horizontally and toasted before serving. Because of the yeast, the texture has nooks and crannies that are great for soaking up butter, jams, and honey.

The most popular brand in the US is Thomas’, but you can find them at most grocery stores in various brands.

While you can toast English muffins in the toaster or the oven, using an air fryer or Ninja Foodi is my favorite way to get a perfectly crisp muffin. And it only takes a few minutes!

βœ…Why The Air Fryer Is The Best Way To Toast an English Muffin

  • You can toast multiple English muffins at once, depending on the size of your air fryer.
  • The air fryer uses dry circulating heat, making the process quick and easy.
  • No need to pull out your toaster oven or turn on the larger oven. The air fryer uses less electricity and will not heat the house.
  • No need to babysit. Simply set the timer and continue with your morning as your breakfast gets toasted.

🍞How To Toast An English Muffin In The Air Fryer

1️⃣Preheat the air fryer: Turn on your air fryer and set it to 375F. Let it preheat for 3-5 minutes.

2️⃣Fork split the English muffin: Using a fork, carefully separate the two sides of the muffin, cutting it in half leaving a textured inside that’s great for spreads and butter.

3️⃣Toast the English muffin: Place the English muffin halves at the bottom of the air fryer basket and set the timer for 5 minutes. Depending on how dark you enjoy your toast, leave it in anywhere from 2 minutes to 8 minutes using the chart below.

4️⃣Remove and serve: Remove the toasted English muffins with tongs and spread with your favorite butter, jam, or jelly while warm. Enjoy!

πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³Air Fryer Cooking Tips

  • Do not cut the English muffin with a knife. Cutting with a knife will make the inside flat and not as textured. Use a fork to split the muffin in half.
  • If you don’t have an air fryer, you can use your oven set to broil on high for about 45 seconds to a minute per side. Keep a close eye on them so they don’t burn!
  • Do not overcrowd your air fryer or Ninja Foodi as this will result in uneven toasting. If you are cooking for a large group, cook the English muffins in batches.
  • To reheat an English muffin in the air fryer: If you want to reheat an English muffin that’s already been toasted, place it in the air fryer for 30-60 seconds at 375F until warmed through.
