What Happens When You Put Eggs In The Air Fryer
Curious about what happens when you put eggs in the air fryer? Magic. That's what happens. Ok, so maybe it's not magic, but the simplicity makes it feel that way.
Forget the days of babysitting your eggs to get something perfectly cooked or dodging grease splatters to get perfectly crisp edges.
Simply follow the steps below for the perfect Air Fryer Eggs!
How To Make Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs
- Place eggs on your air fryer tray or basket
- Turn your air fryer to 250F
- Cook for 16 minutes, no turning required
- When cooking time is complete, place eggs in an ice bath
- After 5 minutes, peel eggs under running water
Does The Size Of Egg Matter?
Absolutely! The bigger the egg, the longer it takes to cook through. So if you have medium eggs, large eggs, duck eggs, or anything else under the sun, just remember to adjust your cooking times accordingly.
What Is An Ice Bath?
An ice bath is nothing more than a bowl filled with cold water and ice. You'll want to submerge your eggs in this super cold water to stop the cooking process.
Overcooked eggs can be rubbery and discolored. To prevent this from happening, always put your Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs in an ice bath immediately after cooking.
How To Peel Hard Boiled Eggs
Peeling eggs doesn't have to be hard. Follow these easy steps to get perfectly peeled hard boiled eggs.
- Lightly tap eggs on a plate to create small cracks in the shell after they are cooked and have soaked in an ice bath for five minutes.
- Under running water, use your thumb to gently peel away the loose layers of egg
- Once the shell is removed, thoroughly run under water to remove any remaining shell fragments and store or serve.
Can You Fry Eggs In An Air Fryer
So, air fryer hard boiled eggs aren't your cup of tea? No problem! Try Air Fryer Fried Eggs!
For fried eggs, you'll need a little more help from accessories. Find a pan that fits inside of your air fryer. I prefer a 7" springform or a Fat Daddio pan for this.
- Apply nonstick spray to your pan
- Crack your egg into the pan
- Cook for 8 minutes at 250F
- Allow to sit uninterrupted for 2-3 minutes
