Recipe FAQs

How Do You Toast in an Air Fryer?

To toast in an air fryer, spread butter on bread if desired, and then place into the air fryer basket in a single layer, butter side up. Cook on the air fry setting for 3-5 minutes at 400°F, or until your toast has reached the desired level of browning.

If you don’t preheat your air fryer, an additional 1-2 minutes may be needed.

Can Avocado Go in the Air Fryer?

Yes, avocado can go in the air fryer. However, it’s typically only used when making a food such as avocado fries, which are breaded.

Though, if you wanted to heat mashed avocado on toast for example, you could place it in for a few minutes just to warm it up.

Do You Put Butter on Avocado Toast?

You can put butter on avocado toast, but it is not necessary. Avocado is naturally high in fat and creamy on its own.

However, butter or olive oil may be added for toasting if you desire.

What is the Best Bread to Use For Avocado Toast?

The best bread to use for avocado toast is a type that is dense and sturdy to support the toppings. This is usually sourdough, whole grain, or multigrain bread.

However, a hearty Italian boule, Anadama, rye, and other similar breads are also great options.

Recipe Pro Tips

  • Depending on the size of your avocados and your bread, you may have enough to make more than 2 toasts
  • If preferred, you can slice your avocado into thin slices and spread it along the toast. Sprinkle the seasoning over top of it if you choose to do this

Storage Tips

  • The mashed avocado can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days, so long as you’ve added lemon or lime juice to it
  • You should not store avocado coated bread, as the bread will become soggy. Simply toast the bread when you are ready to eat and spread reserved avocado over it
