  • 4 slices white toast bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 oz deli style ham sliced into strips or diced
  • 4 large eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • nonstick cooking spray


  • Preheat the air fryer to 375°F.
  • Spray 4 (8-ounce) oven-proof ramekins with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Remove the crusts from the bread sliced and discard or save for other use.
  • Spread one side of the bread with butter and place it butter-side-down into a ramekin, press gently to shape the bread to the cup. Repeat with the other sliced.
  • Distribute the ham on top of the bread. Crack one egg into each cup. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sprinkle cheese on top.
  • Transfer the ramekins into the air fryer basket. Air fry for 10–13 minutes or until the eggs are set or done as desired.
  • Carefully remove the ramekin from the air fryer basket. Run a knife around the sides of the bread to remove it from the ramekin.
  • Place on a plate, garnish with parsley and serve.
