This easy air fryer toaster strudel takes 9 minutes to make! Crispy, golden brown and perfectly flaky on the outside. Soft and gooey on the inside. Use your favorite frozen toaster strudel flavor to make a quick & tasty breakfast.
Frozen toaster strudels make a quick breakfast when you make them in the air fryer.
- They take less than 10 minutes to make. Plus, most of the 10 minutes is hands off, waiting for the toaster strudel to cook.
- An air fryer cooks more evenly than a toaster. The air fryer distributes heat more evenly than heating toaster strudels in a toaster.
- Save energy by not using an oven. Heating up the whole oven just for a toaster strudel is a waste of energy and time.
- Decorating toaster strudels is a great activity for kids. Decorating and adding toppings to a toaster strudel is an easy cooking activity for kids to help with.
- Toaster Strudels: There are lots of Pillsbury toaster strudel flavors. Use whichever flavor you want, but make sure it is frozen.
Step 1: Preheat the air fryer to 350F. Set the timer for 6 minutes.
Step 3: Remove the toaster strudel from the air fryer. Add the icing to the toaster strudel as well as any other additional toppings, such as fresh fruit. Serve immediately.
There are lots of additional toppings you can add to toaster strudels to make them even more delicious. Here are some ideas:
- Fresh Berries: Top the toaster strudel with fresh blueberries, strawberries or raspberries.
- Cinnamon: For apple flavored toaster strudels, add a dash of cinnamon on top.
- Chocolate: For a decadent, dessert-like toaster strudel, drizzle with a homemade chocolate ganache, or even some warmed Nutella. You can also add a sprinkle of chocolate shavings.
- Whipped Cream: Any flavor of toaster strudel will taste even better with a dollop of whipped cream!
What To Serve With Toaster Strudels
A toaster strudel can be a light meal by itself, but if you are looking to have a more filling breakfast, here are some ideas for what to serve with toaster strudels:
- Fresh Fruit: A side of fresh fruit such as berries, sliced apples, oranges, pineapple or mangos would all work.
- Eggs: Serve eggs however you prefer — scrambled, boiled, overeasy or sunny-side up.
- Breakfast Potatoes: Breakfast potatoes or hash browns go well with toaster strudels. Potatoes + Eggs + Toaster Strudels would make a great breakfast combination.
- French Toast or Pancakes: For a very filling brunch, add a side of french toast or pancakes, such as these oat milk pancakes.
Once air fried, frozen toaster strudels are best served fresh. They are so quick to make that there is no reason to make them in advance.
However, if you do end up with extra, store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Note that they may not taste as crisp or fresh when heating them for the second time around.
Always store the toaster strudels without the icing on them or they will become very soggy. Store leftover toaster strudels and icing separately.
As mentioned above, it is best to serve these toaster strudels fresh out of the air fryer.
However, if you need to reheat leftovers, reheat them in the air fryer at 320F for 3 to 5 minutes or until warmed through.
Do not reheat the toaster strudel with icing or other toppings on it.
- Lay the toaster strudels in a single layer. You can make multiple toaster strudels at one time in the air fryer as long as they are able to lie in a flat layer without overlapping.
- Don’t thaw the toaster strudels first. The frozen toaster strudels should go straight from the freezer to the air fryer. Don’t let them thaw first otherwise they will become soggy.
- Air fryers vary slightly in their cooking time. Different brands of air fryers will vary slightly in their cooking time and temperature. When making these toaster strudels for the first time, keep a close eye on your food towards the end of the cooking time to make sure it doesn’t cook too long.
- Use the preheat function if you have it. I find using the preheat function of the air fryer cooks the toaster strudels more evenly and predictably each time. However, if you don’t have this function on your air fryer, you can still make these frozen toaster strudels.
Any air fryer that allows you to set the temperature will work. I use the Ninja 5 in 1 Foodie.
You can make extra toaster strudel icing by mixing together ½ cup icing, 2 tablespoons of heavy cream and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Yes, but the cooking times and temperature will vary depending on the recipe you are using. This toaster strudel recipe can be made from scratch in the air fryer.
