HARD BOILED EGGS IN AIR FRYER
As I use my air fryer more and more, I find myself sharing about it with my friends all the time. One question that I get a lot is…
CAN YOU BOIL EGGS IN THE AIR FRYER?
To be honest, until recently I hadn’t thought about how to boil eggs in an air fryer. I was content making Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs or microwaving boiled eggs. But when my friends want to know, I have to find out.
So, YES! The answer is that you can definitely boil eggs in the air fryer.
Obviously you’re not actually boiling the eggs, but you get hard-boiled eggs in ten minutes that are absolutely perfect!
If you don’t own an air fryer yet, you need to get one!
The one we own is similar to this Air Fryer with basket. But I’m looking forward to our new Compact Air Fryer for cooking small batches of things! I’ll let you know what I think once I use it a few times!
ARE AIR FRYER HARD BOILED EGGS EASY TO PEEL
The simple answer is yes. But I have to tell you that I think that using the air fryer makes some of the easiest to peel eggs ever!
HOW LONG TO COOK A DOZEN EGGS IN AIR FRYER
Because of the size of my air fryer, I only cook half a dozen eggs at a time. I cook 6 eggs for 10 minutes and then put them in an ice bath to cool. So it takes about 20 minutes for me to make a dozen eggs in the air fryer.
If you have a larger capacity air fryer, you could cook 8-12 eggs at a time using a bit more cook time. I recommend about 15 minutes.
AIR FRYER SOFT BOILED EGGS
If you want to make soft boiled eggs in the air fryer, just reduce the cooking time to 10 minutes. For medium-boiled cooking for 12-13 minutes.
HOW TO MAKE HARD BOILED EGGS IN AIR FRYER
To make these air fry boiled eggs you’ll need 6 eggs and a bowl of ice water. That’s really all you need and shows just how easy these eggs are to make!
You’ll need about 25 minutes total to make and cool your eggs before they’re ready to eat! (Or decorate, if it’s that time of year!)
Place your eggs in the basket of your air fryer.
Cook the eggs for 15 minutes at 270°F.
Remove the eggs from the air fryer and place them in the bowl of ice and water to cool them down.
Allow the eggs to cool for at least 15 minutes before peeling and eating (or decorating)!
