    How To Make Hard Boiled Eggs In The Air Fryer

    I use my air fryer to cook hard boiled eggs when I don’t want to heat up the house by using the stovetop. Also, I don’t like to babysit the eggs by watching for the water to boil or waiting to pull them out of the water in exactly 12 minutes.With the air fryer, you set the eggs in the basket or on a trivet, set the temperature to 260 degrees and set the timer for 16 to 20 minutes (depending on your air fryer). Then you walk away.
