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.
First tip: If you make these, splurge and get ramekins, when I tried other containers they all failed.
Second Tip: Do not add any butter, they butter carmelizes and therefore burns, so you either get a burned egg or runny egg.
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.

Start by greasing your ramekin.
Then crack your egg inside of it.
Place your English Muffin and Egg into the Air Fryer, Set the temperature for 330 degrees for 3 minutes.
After 3 minutes, remove the English Muffin and place the bacon in. Continue with cooking the egg and bacon for another 2 minutes. Then remove the egg. Turn the temperature up to 390 degrees for another 3 minutes.
Place one of the pieces of the English Muffin down, on a cutting board, then flip the egg onto the English Muffin, top with the bacon and add the second half of the English Muffin.
