Hard-Boiled Eggs Air Fryer Recipe

This is after they are cooked, not much of a difference. Then I place them in a bowl of cold water.
Cut them in half; this is what they looked like.
Here Are Some Tips For Making The Perfect Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs–
- Do not use farm fresh eggs, as they are harder to peel than older eggs. The best eggs for hard boiling are bought about 2-3 days old.
- The ice bath is so important. If you do not immediately place them in ice-cold water, they will continue to cook. The ice bath completely stores the cooking process. So, you end up with perfect eggs.
- Start by air frying one egg. Every air fryer is different, so while your air fryer might use 15 minutes and mine 17, there is no sense doing an entire batch. Especially since it’s so easy, do one egg, is it done, use your judgment, from there.
How To Store Hard Boiled Eggs–
If you are not planning on eating them right away, the best thing is to leave them with the shell on. They will last about 4 to 5 days in the refrigerator.
This recipe will work. As most of you will soon realize, the problem is that every air fryer is a bit different. So, as stated above, while your air fryer may cook the eggs at 13 minutes and mine at 15, you have to play with the recipe. But it’s worth it because once you figure it out, you can have a hard-boiled egg anytime you want to.
Try 1 to 2 eggs, set your timer to 250 degrees F, for 16 minutes. Then do a cold bath right after. Peel them. Then ask yourself, are they done? If you like them that way, that’s fine, if you wanted them a bit more cooked, add a minute next time. Then in your air fryer notes or on your phone, jot down what time worked for you.
What Are Those Brown Spots on My Eggs-
We have discussed this in great detail in my Facebook Air Fryer Group; it was caused by oil in the air fryer. That is not true. We believe that they are some of the egg membranes that come through the shell. People have said that this is the same problem they get when they bake hard-boiled eggs.
The spots usually wipe off.
