  • 4 large eggs

  • ¾ cup whole milk

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 8 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread

  • Cooking spray


  1. Whisk eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla together in a wide shallow dish. Cut bread slices into thirds lengthwise (24 pieces total).

  2. Preheat air fryer to 325°F for 3 minutes. Lightly coat the basket with cooking spray. Working in batches, dip 8 bread sticks in the egg mixture, flipping constantly, until completely soaked, about 15 seconds. Arrange the soaked bread sticks in an even layer in the prepared basket; coat with cooking spray. Cook, flipping and coating with additional cooking spray halfway, until golden brown and interior is no longer wet, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat the process 2 more times with the remaining bread sticks and egg mixture.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
