In the mornings, we want something tasty and nutritious — but it helps if it’s easy to prepare, too. That’s where an air fryer can come in handy, and luckily there are plenty of air fryer breakfast dishes you can try.
Apart from being convenient to use, an air fryer helps us cook more healthily. Here, we’ve included a variety of breakfast options, ranging from a full breakfast to coffee time snacks. Scroll down for our favourite air fryer breakfast recipes.

Unless you’re familiar with British cuisine, you may be unfamiliar with scotch eggs. Nevertheless, it makes for a fine breakfast dish. It consists of a boiled egg wrapped in ground sausage, which is then coated with bread crumbs and baked. You can use a soft or hard-boiled egg for this, and it’s a fun way to make a breakfast air fryer dish that makes you feel like you’re abroad, too.
Maybe a slice of fresh apple is too simple for your breakfast. Thereby, why not try making these Apple Fritters? The doughnuts are filled with apple pieces and cinnamon spice, and are best enjoyed with a tangy apple cider glaze. Using an air fryer, it’s the healthier way to make such an indulgent treat.
