Air Fryer Eggs
This air-fried eggs recipe is the best breakfast solution for your busy morning.
You just need to place the eggs in the air fryer, set the time and temperature, and let the air fryer do the job while you're getting ready for the rest of the day.
The Best Temperature to Air Fry Eggs
Please keep in mind that air fryers work differently from one to the next, so the cooking time and temperature vary based on the specs and quality of the air fryer, as well as your batch size.
Air fryer basket tends to cook foods a little faster than the air fryer oven.
In this recipe, I used my Gourmia 8qt air fryer. I've tried cooking whole eggs in an air fryer at different times and temperatures. I think the best temperature for air fryer eggs is cooking them at 265°F.
When I cooked the whole eggs at 265°F, the eggs came out beautifully. The egg has firmness in both the egg white and the yolk throughout, and without the rubbery texture.
On the other hand, when I cooked the eggs in my Ninja Foodi 8-in-1 Digital Air Fry, Large Toaster, I had to increase the cooking time to 22 minutes at the same temperature.
How to Make Hard-Boiled Eggs in an Air Fryer
To make these hard-boiled eggs in an air fryer, you only need some fresh eggs and nothing else. So simple, right?
Here are some important steps to follow:
Step 1. Preheat the air fryer to 265°F.
Step 2. Place 6 eggs in the air fryer basket.
Step 3. Cook for 15 minutes if you are using an air fryer basket or 22 minutes if you cook the eggs with an air fryer toaster oven.
Step 4. Once the eggs are completed cooking, use a slotted spoon to transfer them from the basket to the cold water. Make sure that the eggs submerged in water until completely cool for about 5 minutes.
FAQ and Cooking Tips:
No, you don't let the egg sit out at room temperature before cooking. Just place the eggs straight from the refrigerator onto the basket.
If you're cooking smaller portions, you don't need to alter your cooking time.
You can keep boiled eggs in the refrigerator and must be used within 3-4 days.
