If you own an air fryer, you need these egg air fryer recipes in your repertoire.
Funny to think that air fryers were first sold as a low-fat way to make french fries. Sure, they can do that and do that very well, but they’re so much more versatile.
French fries, even when air fried, do not make a healthy meal. The starch in potatoes causes insulin spikes that lay down fat in the body and there are worries about the health effects of acrylamides created by high-temperature cooking.
Plus, if you’re on a ketogenic or low-carb diet, french fries and other carb-rich foods are simply not on the menu.
Fortunately, air fryers can do wonderful things with vegetables, fish, meat and eggs.
It sometimes takes a little lateral thinking. How can runny eggs ever work in an air fryer without creating a mess? But it can be done and these dozen recipes show you how.
So let’s get cracking!
1. The Best Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs
There is a way to enjoy boiled eggs without waiting for a pan of water to boil or filling your kitchen with clouds of steam. Air fry for about 15 minutes for a perfect hard-boiled egg, around 10 to 11 minutes for soft-boiled. This recipe advises plonking the boiled eggs into a cold water bath after cooking – makes them easier to peel.

3. Low Carb Egg Muffins
A practical recipe that uses up leftovers to create a yummy and healthy breakfast. I like little bits of chorizo and spring onion in mine, but you can throw in whatever you enjoy most. Except for little cubes of carrot: I’m pretty sure that would ruin them.

5. Pastel de Nata – Portuguese Egg Tarts
I like any and all egg custard recipes. My dad used to buy me an egg custard as a treat when I was maybe 4 or 5 years old and I can still remember them. Pastel de Nata use flaky pastry which adds an extra dimension to the sweet custard filling. I was so glad when I figured out how to make these in my air fryer.
