Cooking frozen waffles in the air fryer is great for busy mornings when you need an easy breakfast quickly.
Frozen waffles is a great way to get breakfast in you on a busy morning and when you are on the go. It only takes a few minutes to make when cooking frozen waffles in the air fryer, so you can have your breakfast ready before work or school starts.
You can heat frozen waffles such as ones you find in the grocery store freezer section or even homemade waffles. I've heated homemade waffles up in the air fryer before and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious they were!
Following the simple steps below is an easy way to get breakfast on the table.
Here are some of our favorite brands of frozen waffles
- Eggo waffles - I think everyone loves the standard blueberry Eggo waffles, but there are other good flavors as well, such as the Eggo buttermilk waffles or the strawberry waffles (which we used in this recipe).
- Trader Joe's - I'm always impressed with the Trader Joe brand food and their frozen waffles are no different.
- Vans - these tend to be a little bit denser waffle, but they are still delicious, especially when you are trying to watch what you eat.
- Kodiak Cakes - another healthier brand. We like these waffles as well.
For best results make sure to have your waffles in a single layer. If they are overlapped, the hot air isn't able to fully circulate around the waffles and you'll end up with parts that don't have a crispy texture.
For this recipe, I used frozen Eggo waffles. If you are heating up thicker waffles, you will need to increase the cooking time. The best way to figure out the different times for cooking your waffles is to cook for the amount of time in this recipe and then check the waffles. Continue cooking for an additional minute or two and check again until they reach your preferred doneness.
