We could all use more simplicity in our lives regarding breakfast. However, with so many new kitchen gadgets on the market, deciding which is best for which recipe can be challenging.
So, let me tell you about my newfound love for my air fryer! Everything from dinner to desserts can be made with it, including my new favorite: “boiled” eggs!
Most of us remove a pot, fill it halfway with water, carefully add the eggs, and wait for them magically transform into boiling water. Then you have to extract them, cool them down, etc.
Thanks to your handy dandy air fryer, boiling water is no longer required! Instead of hot water circulating your eggs, hot air circles them. The result is the same: you no longer have to deal with water splashes on your stovetop or wait for the water to boil.
Check out the recipe below for the perfect air fryer hard “boiled” eggs! If you need eggs quickly, this is a great recipe to try. It’s excellent for a simple breakfast, a healthy snack, egg salad, deviled eggs, Cobb and Nicoise salads, crostinis, and pickled or marinated eggs.
How To Make Air Fryer Hard-Boiled Eggs
- 6 medium-large eggs
- Preheat the air fryer to 270°F.
- Slide the air fryer basket into place over the eggs.
- The following step will be determined by how you like your eggs. First, keep soft-boiled eggs in there for 10 minutes. This produces a soft white and a jammy yolk. Next, hold the eggs there for 12-13 minutes for medium-boiled eggs. This version will have a slightly set yolk and a somewhat tender white. Finally, hard-boiled eggs should be in there for 14-15 minutes.
- Make an ice bath while your eggs are cooking. This will help prevent them from overcooking when you remove them and allow you to peel them more quickly. It’s as simple as putting a bunch of ice in a bowl of cold water.
- When the eggs are done, carefully transfer them to the icy water and set them aside for about five minutes. Then, when they’re cool enough to handle, peel them and eat them!
- Use older eggs and immediately place them in ice water after cooking. This aids in separating the inner lining from the shell, making it easier to peel.
- Air fryer hard-boiled eggs can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days. They’re fantastic for salads, avocado toast, and even egg salad.
- I don’t recommend freezing hard boiled eggs. The egg white will harden and become unpalatable. The egg yolk might be salvageable, but I don’t think it’s worth destroying the white for.
