You see, we have chickens. Like a lot of them. SO that means we have A LOT of eggs. Yep, eggs for breakfast, lunch and dinner around here. I am not complaining. It is one less thing to buy from there store.
I also know they are free range organic babies, every single one. If you don’t live in the boonies like we do, just buy some at the store along with your add ins and we can get going. 😉
Air Fryer Omelette
Here are a few questions you might have before you get started on this baby:
Use a large bowl to whip up your egg mixture. This will make one 4″ that will serve 1-2 people. You could make more and just rotate them in one at a time.
I have made this killer spinach quiche for years. You could in fact use refrigerated pie crust with this filling too.
Ingredients and items needed:
- 4″ pan – you’ll want one like this or a springform pan so you can lift it out
- you’ll want non stick cooking spray too to make things easier
- Milk or heavy cream
- Shredded cheese(s)
- Diced bell peppers and onions work great
- Precooked finely diced meat is optional
- Seasonings such as salt and pepper
You could add green onions to your breakfast frittata too. Remember to preheat the air fryer for 5 minutes before putting your prepared pan into your air fryer basket.
Including prep and preheating time keep in mind that this may take up to 25 minutes to complete.
Time needed: 8 minutes.
Air Fryer Quiche
Preheat air fryer to 360 F. for 5 minutes.
In a bowl whisk eggs, then add all other ingredient, stir to combine. Spray 4″ cake pan with cooking spray. so it lifts out easily Then pour egg mixture inside.
Put into air fryer basket for 8 minutes total flipping it halfway through the total cook time.
Remove, allow to cool in pan for at least 3 minutes before removing it.
Here is what it looks like when it is done and ready to be enjoyed!
What cheeses can be used in quiche?
There are several options but the best we like are:
- Swiss is the most common
- Gruyere is an option as well
What goes with quiche?
I have made an Instant Pot omelette before but honestly, this turns out better. I love the crunchy browned top when this is done. The texture is just the best.
If you have a Foodi you can opt to try our Ninja Foodi breakfast as well. It is similar but you don’t need a springform pan to make it which is nice.
