Perhaps one of the toughest habits to pick up is prepping a satisfying breakfast before the workday begins. Every morning is a battle between the alarm and your urge to sleep, and often this means time for breakfast is sacrificed in exchange for a few more minutes in bed. With that considered, here is a list of quick and tasty breakfast recipes you can whip up with your favourite kitchen appliance, the air fryer.
To pull together this list of air fryer breakfast recipes, we consulted our favourite recipe source: TikTok. Here are the best dishes we found and how to recreate them at home.
