French Toast Sticks


1 tablespoon maple syrup, plus more for serving

4 eggs, lightly beaten

1 cup coconut milk (or whole milk)

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 loaf (approximately 14 ounces) sliced bread (preferably challah, French, or sourdough), cut in 1-inch-thick strips

Cooking spray

Fresh fruit, for serving


1     In a shallow baking dish, whisk together 1 tablespoon syrup, eggs, milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Place the bread sticks into the mixture and allow them to absorb batter for at least 5 minutes.

2     Insert crisper plate in basket and basket in unit. Preheat unit by selecting AIR FRY, setting temperature to 390°F, and setting time to 3 minutes. Select START/PAUSE to begin.

3     Once unit is preheated, spray the crisper plate with cooking spray. Working in batches, fill the basket with the sticks in a single layer, making sure not to crowd the basket.

4     Select AIR FRY, set temperature to 390°F, and set time to 8 minutes. Select START/PAUSE to begin.

5     After 3 minutes, remove basket and flip the sticks. Reinsert basket to resume cooking for 3 more minutes. If desired, cook for up to 2 additional minutes.

6   Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the remaining sticks.

7   When cooking is complete, serve immediately with maple syrup and fresh fruit.

TIP:  Leave the bread out for a few hours before cooking so it can dry out a bit—it will soak up more egg that way.
