Instructions

Preheat the Air Fryer:
Set your air fryer to 350°F (175°C) and let it warm up while you prepare the ingredients.

Mix the Custard:
In a small bowl, whisk together:

  • 3 tablespoons of Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon of honey or maple syrup
  • A pinch of salt (optional)

Prepare the Bread:
Use the back of a spoon to press down the center of each slice of bread, creating a shallow well without tearing the bread.

Assemble the Toasts:
Spoon the yogurt custard mixture into the wells of the bread slices. Spread it evenly.

Add Berries:
Place fresh berries like blueberries or sliced strawberries on top of the custard.

Air Fry:
Carefully place the custard-topped bread slices into the preheated air fryer. Cook at 350°F for 5-7 minutes or until the custard is set and the edges of the bread are golden brown.

Serve:
Remove the toast from the air fryer. Let it cool slightly before serving. Enjoy your delicious yogurt custard toast warm!

Tips:

  • Use thick bread like brioche or sturdy white bread.
  • Experiment with different fruit toppings.
  • Garnish with a drizzle of honey or a sprinkle of powdered sugar before serving.

Tips, Tricks & Storing

Tips:

  • Bread Choice: Use sturdy bread like brioche or whole wheat to hold the custard well. Avoid very soft bread as it may get too soggy.
  • Custard Creation: Whisk the yogurt, egg, and sweetener until smooth. This helps ensure an even spread.
  • Even Spread: Flatten the bread center with a spoon or fork to create a well. This way, the custard stays in place.

Tricks:

  • Flavor Boost: Add spices like cinnamon or cardamom to the custard. Fresh fruits like strawberries, blueberries, or pineapple add a fresh taste.
  • Preheating: Always preheat the air fryer for best results. It helps the toast cook evenly.
  • Crispiness: For extra crispiness, you can lightly toast the bread before adding the custard mixture.

Storing:

  • Short Term: These toasts are best enjoyed fresh, but you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
  • Reheating: To reheat, place the toast back in the air fryer at low heat (around 300°F) for a minute or two. This keeps the toast from getting too mushy.
  • Freezing: It’s not recommended to freeze these toasts as the custard might separate.

Recipe Variations & Serving Suggestions

Variations

  • Different Fruits: Try adding sliced bananas, raspberries, or peaches instead of berries.
  • Sweeteners: Swap honey with maple syrup or agave nectar.
  • Spices: Mix in a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg for extra flavor.
  • Bread Types: Use whole wheat, sourdough, or gluten-free bread.

Serving Suggestions

  1. Breakfast Delight: Pair with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee.
  2. Topping Ideas: Add a sprinkle of granola or nuts on top for some crunch.
  3. Side Dish: Serve with a fresh fruit salad for a complete meal.
  4. Savory Twist: Skip the sweeteners and add cheese and herbs for a savory version.
