Egg Bites in Air Fryer

We have made Starbucks sous vide eggs before in the Instant Pot, but you can’t get a crispy top like these. That is probably my favorite part.

Using these cute little silicone muffin cups there are TONS of possibilities and everyone can customize their own. That’s what makes it a killer protein packed start to any day.

Make an assembly line if you have guests over and make each one fresh, what a hit that would be!

So if you have this machine you can choose either our pressure cook version which will come out really tender and soft, or these. Both are great but the texture on both are opposite. I would suggest making them both and deciding which you prefer. You literally can use all the same ingredients for both.

  1. You’ll need these silicone cupcake liners
  2. Eggs
  3. Cheese
  4. Bacon crumbled, or packaged real bacon bits
  5. Onion
  6. Bell pepper
  7. Salt and pepper

Can I use silicone cups in an air fryer?

Are there other options? You can use any oven safe dish or mold in the air fryer. They can be made of glass, ceramic, metal or silicone.

You can also use silicone or paper cupcake cups or molds to bake cupcakes, muffins or small gratins. I could see adding a few diced tomatoes to your air fryer eggs too. It would be a great leftover ham recipe as well. Experiment with it and let me know if you come up with a great combination.

Can you cook eggs in the air fryer?

Yes!! Just preheat it to 270 degrees.

  • Then you can add them into the fryer basket and make air fryer hard boiled eggs.
  • You could also crack them into these silicone baking cups without any other items and cook at 300 degrees for about 8 minutes.
    • Timing will depend on whether you want soft boiled, or your yolks to be hard.

Can I use an air fryer without the basket?

I wouldn’t. You really shouldn’t put food directly on the base of the air fryer because it might hinder the circulating the air properly.

That’s what makes the food crispy and the bottom will be flat without any air flow hitting it.

How long do egg bites last in the fridge?

First of all I have never had leftovers. I don’t think they would be great the day after even if I did, however if you do have some left here’s what you do.

  • You can keep these in the fridge for about 4-5 days, which is PERFECT for healthy breakfasts throughout the week. 

If you see extra liquid in the bottom of your storage container because of all the vegetables don’t worry, it’s totally normal. If you want to reheat egg bites you can so in the microwave, 20 seconds should do it.

How Long to Cook Egg Bites in Air Fryer

Basic steps to follow are here: First put your silicone egg cups into your air fryer basket.

  1. Crack 1 egg into each one.
  2. Sprinkle your added ingredients on top
  3. Set cook time to about 12 minutes (check after 10) at 300 degrees F
  4. Remove when golden brown on top
  5. Can put in between an English muffin to make egg muffins if you like

Alternatively you could scramble all eggs in a bowl, add diced and shredded add ins and divide egg mixture into muffin cups and cook. This will create a smoother result.

How can you reheat them in the air fryer after freezing?

The Typical Mom

It will dry out I would use your microwave instead at 45 seconds or so.

Ho can you reheat them after freezing in the air fryer?

Easy peasy. I did not use any milk or cheese. Added in some chopped tomatoes. Put them in for 15 minutes and they turned out perfectly.

I would not use those, they won't work well

2 things: 1) Mine turned out better when I cooked them at 340 for 13 minutes. 2) A gravy ladle (smaller than a soup ladle) was perfect for filling the cups.
