How To Make Air Fryer Breakfast Bombs
Below, we’ll walk you through everything needed to make these scrumptious breakfast treats to start your day right.
Step 1: Form the breakfast bombs
Mix the scrambled eggs, cooked bacon, and shredded cheddar cheese in a small bowl.
Add a couple of tablespoons of the sausage mixture to the center of each biscuit.
Step 2: Seal and air fry
Place another biscuit on top and pinch to seal, or wrap it around itself and seal the edges by pressing firmly. Brush biscuits with melted butter or egg wash with a pastry brush. You can divide the biscuits and use a rolling pin to roll out the dough for thinner biscuits.
Place the biscuit bombs into the basket of your air fryer. Seam sides down.
Set the temperature to 320 degrees F, air the fryer setting, and set the cooking time for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown.
- For best results, do not crowd your basket. Leave space around the egg bombs, so they can perfectly cook up.
- Spray your basket with cooking spray so the Air Fryer Breakfast Bombs do not stick. If you find that they still stick, use an air fryer liner.
- For best results, brush with melted butter, and add some seasonings!
- Line the bottom of the air fryer basket with a piece of parchment paper or use parchment rounds for easy cleanup.
- I have made this breakfast pocket recipe in several air fryers, including the Ninja Foodi, Instant Pot Vortex, and other air fryer baskets and oven models. The recipe will work the same.
Substitutions and Variations
There are endless possibilities to make these your own. They are a family favorite and make a great breakfast. Here are some suggestions:
- Meat: You can use various cooked types of meat, including bacon, ground sausage, sausage links, chorizo, and other breakfast meats. Lean meat works better than high-fat meat.
- Cheese: You could add any of your favorite cheeses while I used shredded cheddar cheese. Some great options include a Mexican shredded cheese blend, Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Colby, Pepper Jack Cheese, or Monterey Jack.
- Vegetables: Diced green onions, sauteed peppers or mushrooms, spinach, etc.
- Seasonings: Add Everything But The Bagel Seasoning, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, sesame seeds, etc.
Allow the biscuit breakfast bombs to cool completely at room temperature before storing them. Place the leftover biscuit breakfast bombs in an airtight container lined with paper towels, or wrap them with plastic wrap.
Store the container or bag in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
Allow the biscuit breakfast bombs to cool completely at room temperature before storing them. Place the leftover biscuit breakfast bombs in an airtight container or a sealable plastic bag. Label the container or bag with the date and contents.

Frequently Asked Questions
Breakfast bombs are biscuits that are stuffed with breakfast ingredients like egg, meat, and cheese. They are absolutely delicious!
While you can use any biscuit you want, I love Pillsbury biscuits. I prefer buttermilk biscuits for the best flavor! You can also use any on-hand or available at your local grocery store. The recipe will work precisely the same.
No, I generally do not preheat my air fryer unless I’m looking for a great sear on my food — like with Air Fryer Steak or Air Fryer Steak Bites. For these breakfast bombs, I don’t turn on the air fryer until I am ready to cook.
Yes! But remember, if you are using parchment paper, you should not preheat with the parchment paper inside as it will become a fire hazard!
