How To Make The Best Air Fryer Fried Eggs
What Eggs To Use? It’s hard to get a great egg these days. Although we all can get eggs at the local grocery store, you will get a better-fried egg by using farm-fresh eggs.
I like buying local, which means they come from my neighborhood and are laid by happy hens in an environment with plenty of space all around them. Free-range organic eggs are also a great option.
Don’t Crowd The Pan: For best results only cook 1 or 2 eggs at a time, leaving lots of space around the eggs, so they cook up perfectly.
Cast Iron Pans: Use a cast iron pan in your air fryer, they will cook up your eggs perfectly, since they retain heat. One of my favorite pans to use in my air fryer is my mini cast iron pan. The egg’s edges come out amazing.
Season: Season your eggs, with some freshly cracked black pepper and salt. You can also add any fresh herbs that you have on hand. They add a lot of flavors.
How Long To Cook:
The cooking time will vary depending on your air fryer model and how you like it cooked, but these are some general guidelines. For the best results, cook at 370 degrees F for about 3 to 5 minutes, or until the eggs are set the way that you want them.
Over Easy Eggs: What are over easy eggs? Over easy eggs is a fried egg cooked so the yolk remains runny and the top side of the white part becomes crispy. Another popular name is sunny side eggs. You can flip the eggs and then add a couple of minutes of cooking time. For perfectly air fryer over-easy eggs!
Over Medium Eggs: A lot of people think they know what an over medium egg is. But, if you don’t cook them right, the egg will be too runny or not cooked through enough. You need to find something in between, and that perfect place is when the yolk still has a little bit of gooeyness to it, but there are no more liquidy whites left in the pan. That’s when you have your perfect over-medium eggs!
Over Hard Eggs: This means exactly what the name suggests. The yolk is harder, and you will need a longer cooking time for this type of egg.
Ways To Eat Fried Eggs
Eating fried eggs for breakfast is a great way to start the day, but it’s also easy to do wrong. There are many different ways to enjoy this popular dish. Here are some of our favorite ways you can eat fried eggs in the morning.
1) Fried Eggs with Toast: This healthy breakfast has protein from both the egg whites and yolk, along with carbs from the toast, which will give you energy throughout your day.
2) Fried Eggs with Breakfast Potatoes: A great and complete meal. I love my Air Fryer Breakfast Potato Recipe!
3) Serve with Avacado Toast! Over place the fried eggs over a piece of toast smeared with cream cheese!
How To Store Leftover Fried Eggs
If you’ve ever fried an egg and wanted to save it for later, there’s a simple trick you can use so that when you reheat them, they still taste delicious.
Just store them in an airtight container. The next time you want some fried eggs, take your leftovers out of the fridge and reheat them in the microwave. They’ll be as good as new!
I would not suggest reheating them in the air fryer, as they become rubbery.
