These hard boiled eggs are so easy to cook in the air fryer. There is no boiling water and the best part is you can do other things while they’re cooking. No more waiting for the water to boil and then having to keep a close eye on them as they boil. I even found that peeling them seemed easier. That is the one thing I always dread about preparing hard boiled eggs…. the peeling. But the shells came right off while peeling them under running water. On a side note, who else besides me really wants to reach thru the screen and brush off that small piece of yolk that is clinging to the white of the egg in the picture? I sure wished that I had noticed that before hand. *sigh* Maybe I can just say it gives it a rustic look….perhaps….
Here’s how you cook the eggs:
Preheat air fryer at 250° (Fahrenheit).
Place desired amount of eggs carefully into the basket.
Cook for 16 minutes. If you want a more cooked yolk, about 17 minutes.
Cooking time my vary depending on your air fryer size and brand.
Place eggs in a large bowl filled with ice cold water. I used a kitchen towel to get the eggs out of the basket because they will be hot.
Leave in the water until they are cool enough to handle. Peel and serve as is or scoop out the yolks for deviled eggs or egg salad.
