Zero Waste Air Fryer French Toast

I absolutely hate food waste. I have invested in multiple freezers and am a big fan of freezing any leftovers that I know we won't get to. I even have shared other zero waste recipes like our homemade cake pops and fruit bar popsicles. Today, I'm giving breakfast for dinner a shot with this air fryer French toast.

So, what is zero waste cooking? Zero-waste cooking means to have no waste left behind while cooking a meal. This includes parts of the ingredients you're using and packaging from the ingredients. When practicing zero-waste cooking, you will use every single part of vegetables, fruits, meat, and whatever else may be required for your dish.

I believe not only is this a great way to live more sustainably to help our environment, but also saves you money. So why do I consider this recipe zero waste? We froze the end parts of the loaves of bread. We also froze the uneven amounts of leftover hotdog and hamburger buns because the manufacturers got together got together and sold them in the right amount. But c'est la vie. This recipe for Air Fryer French Toast is super easy and was a definite crowd pleaser plus it made dinner super quick, but also a comfort food, hearty breakfast as well.

Easy Air Fryer Donuts

I love baking with my kids. I know I have mentioned how much I love cooking with my kids more than a time or two, but it can be such a fun activity to do together for them to learn not only a helpful life skill, but it can be a fun science project as well to learn about changing properties. But sometimes I want to just create something easy with them. And these Easy Air Fryer Donuts are only two ingredients, but a huge hit the whole house enjoyed.

Easy Egg Muffins {Meal Prep Breakfast On-The-Go Idea}

I wrote a post back in 2019 about Homemade Meal Prepping Breakfast Ideas for Kids. With everything becoming more go, go, go again and our calendars filling up so quickly, I thought I would share this recipe for my easy egg cups. They are my husband's and kiddo's favorite protein packed breakfast for those super busy mornings. I have seen these called egg muffins as well.

Homemade Chicken Nuggets {Frying Up Healthier with Hamilton Beach Air Fry Sure-Crisp Toaster Oven}

This year, many families are adjusting to new and different back to school schedules. Whether it's in the classroom or at home, so I know how important it is to make quick and convenient meals. I know I have been cooking SO MUCH this year and my grocery bill proves it. 

The Hamilton Beach Sure-Crisp™ Air Fry Toaster Oven will cook meals quickly and easily. Bake, air fry, broil, or toast in this versatile all-in-one toaster oven. The Sure-Crisp technology uses powerful, hot air to ensure food is browned and crisp every time. The large capacity toaster oven can fit up to 6 slices of bread or a 12" pizza. 

I am so excited for this because a few years ago my husband got rid of our air fryer because he said we never used it (which was true at the time), but now we cook at home so much more and it will be so nice to have the opportunity to fry different foods in a healthy way. But I love that it isn't just an air fryer, I love that it is a multi-purpose machine. We decided to make some homemade chicken nuggets because I think these will be a great meal-prep freezer item for my family.

I love trying and creating new recipes. So when I had the opportunity to test out the Todd English Touchscreen Air Fryer thanks to Phoenix Trading Company I was all over it! And guess what? They are giving away one too! PLUS an air fryer cookbook by Allison Waggoner called “In the Kitchen.”
