Eggs Bacon and Toast song
Ever heard the phrase start your day the Gergich way? Did you know this song from the show Parks and recreation about eggs bacon and toast because it just sums up how amazing this air fryer breakfast is. It’s worthy enough to deserve a song 😉
The song goes this way. ♫ Eggs, bacon and toast. Eggs, bacon and toast. Why don’t you start your day the Gergich way with eggs, bacon and toast! ♫
Is this recipe the same as Egg in a hole?
No it’s not the same. Egg in a hole is an entirely different open sandwich. With egg in a hole, you will need to cut out the middle of the bread with a cookie cuter and fill the hole with an egg before frying.
For Egg bacon and toast, the bacon creates a dam for the egg as is seen in this video.
What ingredients do you need.
- Butter: I like to spread some butter on the surface touching the basket to prevent the eggs from sipping through to the basket.
- Black pepper
How to make Eggs bacon and toast in the air fryer
Butter one side of a bread slice, place buttered side down in the air fryer basket.
Create a dam for the eggs by placing the bacon in a ring form.
Pour egg within the bacon ring. Repeat process for second slice. Slide air fryer basket in. Set temperature to 350°F / 177°C and air fryer for 8 mins.
- Spread butter on one side of each bread It helps prevent the egg from leaking through and also adds a nice taste and crunch to the toast.
- No need to preheat the air fryer.

Air fryer Eggs, Bacon and Toast
- Air fryer
- 2 slices of bread
- 1 teaspoon Butter
- 2 strips bacon
- 2 large eggs
- Pinch Ground black pepper (optional)
- Spread butter one side of each bread, place buttered side down in the air fryer basket.
- Create a ring with the bacon on top of each bread to create a dam for the eggs
- Pour eggs inside each bacon dam, sprinkle some black pepper
- Air fryer at 350°F / 177°C for 8 mins. Serve immediately.°
- I don’t recommend using extra large eggs for this recipe, it will spill over the bacon dam a lot more than it did with the large eggs I used.
- Medium eggs can be used, however I would recommend lowering the temp to 330°F and cook for 8-10 mins.
- The eggs in this recipe are fully cooked. If you like runny eggs, you might want to cook for 6 mins.
