How to reheat freezer breakfast biscuits or sandwiches in air fryer 

  • The hot circulating air in the air fryer won’t cook the frozen sandwiches all the way though the center without burning the tops of the bread.
  • Our secret is simple: you have the split the sandwich in half first. Then flip the cheese on the bottom so it doesn’t fly off during air frying.
  • Lay the each half broadside down. Have the meat patty and egg facing the top towards the heating element.
  • Cook the sandwich for a few minutes to make sure the frozen meat heats though. Then close up the sandwich and crisp the bread part for a few more minutes. That way you get a fully warm and cooked sandwich or biscuit center and crispy outside.

  • Pro-Tip: here’s our favorite tools to help make air frying easier:
Evo Oil Sprayer
Evo Oil Sprayer

We LOVE Evo Oil Sprayers. Not the prettiest, but they’re functional and spritz oil great! They don’t clog up like many others we’ve bought. There’s different styles, but all seem to have the same great spray head. Works great for grilling!

8.5" Square Blue Silicone Mat
Perforated Silicone Mat

There are Square Mats & Round Mats. These perforated non-stick silicone mats are used to cook food in your air fryer or steamer to minimize sticking. Holes allow hot circulating air to cook the food & keeps the food from sticking.

Perforated Parchment Paper

Parchment sheets are great for your air fryer or bamboo steamer (food tends to stick most on wire basket or tray). Choose from different sizes, shapes, white and brown (unbleached). Holes allow air to cook food evenly.

Air Fryer Frozen Breakfast Sandwiches

There are several factors which influence outcome of how frozen breakfast sandwiches cook. They all vary in size, thickness, bread type, and the filling so you’ll have to adjust timing. In order to cook the sandwich all the way through the middle, you'll start by cooking the sandwich opened up in halves, then finish the last couple minutes assembled.
For best and even cooking, don't cook too many at once and overcrowd the basket. Once you cook your first sandwich, you’ll know more of what works for your model of air fryer and size of food. These were tested on basket style air fryers. Read more recipe notes below the recipe. Nutrition will depend on individual sandwich.

  • 1 Frozen Breakfast Sandwich



  • Separate the breakfast sandwich in half. Flip the filling so the cheese lays against the bread (because the cheese will blow off if it is on top). See images in recipe write up above for example.
  • Lay the two halves in the air fryer basket, bread side down/meat & egg side up. Air Fry at 340°F/170°C for 6-8 minutes.
  • Reassemble the breakfast sandwich. Continue to Air Fry at 340°F/170°C for another 2 minutes, or until the bread is golden.


Air Frying Tips and Notes:
  1. No Oil Necessary. Cook Frozen – Do not thaw first.
  2. Don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket.
  3. Recipe timing is based on a non-preheated air fryer. If cooking in multiple batches of sandwiches back to back, the following batches may cook a little quicker. 
  4. Recipes were tested in 3.7 to 6 qt. air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, they might cook quicker so adjust cooking time.

If your air fryer is preheated or if you are cooking multiple batches, you may need to reduce timing by a few minutes (unless preheating is called for in the recipe).
