Air Fryer Poached Eggs

Poaching eggs is one of those things you do every morning because it’s easy and quick. But what if I told you there was a better way to prepare eggs? Well, there is. And it’s called air frying. This method uses hot air to gently cook foods like eggs, fish, chicken, vegetables, etc.

The process works by circulating hot air around the food item. As the air heats up, it creates steam inside the container. When the steam condenses, it forms droplets of water that are absorbed into the food. In addition to cooking, this technique also helps retain moisture in the food.

You can use an air fryer to poach eggs in just minutes. Simply place the egg in the basket and close the lid. Turn the temperature down to 350°F and let it cook for about 5 minutes. Then turn off the heat and open the lid. If you want to serve the eggs immediately, simply run cold water over them. Otherwise, allow them to sit for another 10 minutes.

Expert Tips

The secret to making great fried eggs in an air fryer is to start with high-quality ingredients. Use large eggs, preferably free-range. They’re much larger than regular supermarket eggs, so they’ll cook faster. Also make sure to buy extra yolks, because they contain most of the fat in the egg.

Next, season the eggs well with salt and pepper. Then coat each one lightly with flour. Finally, dip the floured eggs into beaten egg whites.

Place the coated eggs in the basket of the air fryer. Cook for about 5 minutes at 350° F. Flip the eggs over and continue cooking for another 4-5 minutes. Remove the eggs from the air fryer and serve immediately.


Cooking eggs in an air fryer is a great way to make delicious and healthy meals quickly. With just a few simple ingredients, you can create a variety of dishes such as soft-boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, and poached eggs. The key to success is to start with high-quality ingredients and season them well. Once you have the basics down, you can experiment with different flavors and techniques.
