This is one of the simplest recipes, although to figure out the cooking temperature and time, I did burn more than a few eggs.
Baked eggs are one of the most popular breakfast items in the world. If you are like me through all of your kids like eggs differently, whether they are soft boiled, over easy, poached or as my son will call them dunkie eggs. (The type where you dunk your toast into them and coat your toast with the yolk, do you know what I am talking about?)
Think, these are perfect for homemade breakfast sandwiches, or just an easy way to cook up a bunch of eggs. The one thing that I would recommend is this awesome Air Fryer Safe and Compact Muffin Tin, which I used in this recipe, and will continue to use it in all of my muffin and other small items. It’s perfect because unlike the silicone muffin cups they do not flap around in the air fryer. And to be honest, think about what happens when the eggs or muffin batter flaps around, you are not getting the best food from your air fryer.
Remember to make great food, you need great tools, that is why a chef’s tools are very important to him or her.
How do you make the perfect baked eggs?
Well, I’m here today to give you some pointers.
The key to perfect baked eggs is to spray your muffin tin, this way the eggs slip out of the tray easily.
I use this for all of my non-stick cooking sprays, but not only to coat the pans, never to coat the food. That I use olive oil for.
If you are making air fryer scrambled eggs, you will need a really good whisk, I have this one, and not only does it work wonders, it is fun to use.
Today’s scrambled eggs are a great way to start any breakfast, filled with protein and vegetables, and it should keep you filled through lunchtime.
I love using my Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker) for all of the recipes, I usually use my burner stove for, they are faster and require less clean up, plus my son travels a ton for hockey, so I can take the Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker) on the road, so it saves me money by not eating out at restaurants, since eating out with 20 hockey-playing boys gets very expensive, very soon.
First tip: If you make these, splurge and get ramekins, when I tried other containers they all failed.
Third Tip: Be generous with the non-stick cooking spray. And if you are using your air fryer a lot. Or plan to, invest in one of these sprayers, Over the long run you will save a ton of money.

Air Fryer-Air Fried-Baked Eggs with Herbs
- 4 large eggs
- salt and pepper to taste
- chopped basil or thyme
Start by spraying your muffin tin (see the items used, to find the one that I used in this recipe) with non-stick cooking spray.
Then crack the egg into each compartment of the muffin tin.
Then season the eggs with salt and pepper, cut the herbs into tiny pieces (mine were too big)
Place the muffin tin into the air fryer basket.
Then set the temperature to 350 degrees F, for 3 minutes.
Check the eggs. You just want them set, if you cook them too long they get rubbery.
Plate, serve and enjoy!
