The Best and Easiest Hard Boiled Eggs

Have you ever made hard boiled eggs without actually boiling water? This is my new favorite way to make hard boiled eggs- in the air fryer of course! You are going to love this recipe because it is hands-free and you can have perfect eggs in just minutes!

How to Make Eggs in the Air Fryer

This recipe is so quick and easy! First, you need to preheat your air fryer for 5 minutes at 270°F. Once preheated, place eggs inside the air fryer basket and cook for 15 minutes at 270°F or for 12 minutes at 300°F.

During the last couple minutes of cooking, prepare a bowl with cold water and ice for your ice bath. When the eggs finish cooking, place in the ice bath for at least 5 minutes. Then peel and enjoy your eggs!

Some Tips for the Best Hard Boiled Eggs in the Air Fryer

The tricky thing about hard boiled eggs is that you don’t know how cooked the yoke is until you crack it open. At this point, it’s kind of too late to do anything about it. Plus, every air fryer model is different, so cooking time may vary for everyone. So, how do you make the best hard boiled eggs?

When I cooked my eggs at 270°F for 15 minutes, my eggs turned out with a little bit of a darker yellow in the middle of the yoke. For me, this is how I love my eggs. I think if I were to give it another minute in the air fryer before the ice bath, it would’ve been thoroughly cooked through.

So, you will have to play around with your temperature and time until you find the perfect eggs consistency for you! But, at 270°F for 15 minutes, you will get nearly perfect eggs every time!
