Making eggs benedict in the air fryer requires two things patience and patience. I literally made this recipe three times, before it came out the way I wanted it to. And, to be honest this was my first time EVER making eggs benedict.
I actually thought of this recipe, about a month ago, so me being me, I put in on my list of things to make. And this morning, was another snow day, my husband is away, and I thought why not? I have all of the ingredients in my house. It is actually really simple, once you get everything together. I will give you tips and hints throughout this post, so it’s a bit longer than normal, so bare with me, and you will have an amazing breakfast.
The only difference between an air fryer eggs benedict and a traditional egg benedict is that I do not poach the eggs since that would currently be impossible in an air fryer, so if you have any thoughts or suggestions email me. Because I’m always looking to expand my use of my air fryer.
So, there are basically 4 layers of the eggs benedict, the English Muffin, Meat (either bacon or Canadian bacon) for mine, I had a piece of Canadian bacon, and I used that, you can easily substitute that out for bacon, the egg, and the sauce.
Let’s take the easiest layer, the English Muffin.
The next easiest part of this “project” egg.
Then I put my egg and Candian Bacon in the Air fryer basket.
Meanwhile, I got busy with the sauce. I would recommend that you do this first, and then do the other ingredients.
With the melted butter and lemon juice, and then use a saucepan to heat it up.
And after assembly.
Kitchen Items Used: (Note: Affiliate links are included in this post)
- 4 piece Canadian Bacon or bacon
- 4 eggs
- 2 English Muffin
- 5 tablespoons melted butter
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 tablespoons lemon juice
- salt and pepper to taste
Start by preparing your ingredients:
1. Cut your Candian Bacon out with a biscuit or cookie cutter
2. Spray your ramekin with non-stick cooking spray, and then crack an egg into the ramekin.
Then place them both in your Air Fryer, for 320 degrees F, for 3 minutes. Then check on them, and flip on the bacon. If your egg is done, remove it. Otherwise, set it for another 3 minutes.
After the egg and bacon are done, remove it, and place your English Muffin in the Air Fryer.
Set the temperature to 365 F, for 3 minutes. Remove your English muffin.
Start by adding the egg yolks, lemon juice and melted butter in a blender. Mix until well combined.
You want the mixture to expand in size.
There are mixed opinions if you should heat it up or not. I did not, but check your food safety warnings about eating raw eggs.
English Muffin on the bottom, then the piece of Canadian Bacon, and then the baked egg on top, and then I poured the sauce over it.
Garnish with some parsley and enjoy!
