Easy & Fun Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs
On the keto diet, we eat lots of hard boiled eggs. My sons love them as a snack or for breakfast with bacon or sausage. Cooking eggs in the air fryer allows me to cook up a bunch of eggs while I’m meal prepping for the week.
Benefits Of Using An Air Fryer To Cook Hard Boiled Eggs
The air fryer creates circulating air flow so your eggs get cook from all angles. It requires less time to cook the eggs compared to the stovetop method because you don’t have to wait for the water to boil. In fact using an air fryer to hard boil your eggs doesn’t require water at all for the cooking process.
Air Fryer Eggs Best Practices & Tips
- Remember every air fryer is different. Depending on the size and model of your air fryer, you may need to adjust the cooking times. Test a few eggs first to perfect the right cooking length before making up a whole carton of eggs.
- Use a wire rack or trivet that fits in your air fryer to place your eggs on top. You want to have a space between the egg and the bottom of the air fryer to allow for air circulation from all angles.
- Cold eggs work best
- If cooking a carton of eggs at a time, you may need to increase the cooking time slightly as your air fryer basket gets crowded. Try increasing the cooking time by a couple of minutes.
Peeling The Shell Off The Hard Boiled Eggs
After your eggs are done cooking in the air fryer, immediately place them in a bowl of ice water. This will stop the cooking process and make them easier to peel off the shell.
