Pop-Tarts or Toaster Strudel in the Air Fryer

One of my favorite things to eat for breakfast growing up was Strawberry Pop-Tarts, later, I grew to like Toaster Strudel almost as well.

Toaster Strudels had that icing that you could pour over the strudel, which made them tasty at home, but for portability…Pop-Tarts were king. As I got older, for some reason (probably health reasons) I stopped buying them altogether. But because of the COVID-19, there wasn’t much left on the grocery store shelves, so I bought a box of Pop-Tarts for a quick easy companion to a cup of coffee. I thought about it for a second, then went back for a box of Toaster Strudel as well. I thought this was a perfect time to do a post about my favorite breakfast junk foods.

Since I do not own a toaster anymore, I figured that this may be the perfect time to try a Pop-Tart or Toaster Strudel in the air fryer.

    I own a Ninja Foodi 2 basket air fryer. When I push air fryer then 350 degrees and start it shows me a 19 minute countdown. Is it really taking 19 minutes to preheat? Thank you.

      Hi, Ernie – I don’t have experience with the Ninja Foodi 2, but the Emeril Lagasse Power AirFryer 360 preheats before the timer starts going down – e.g., select air fryer, temp and time, push start and the clock doesn’t change until the unit is up to temp, then it starts counting down. Is that how the Foodi works? I’m guessing the manual that came with the unit addresses this.
