Air Fryer: An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that cooks food by circulating hot air around it. It works similarly to an oven, but the hot air is circulated more evenly throughout the cooking chamber, resulting in a crispier and healthier result due to the decreased amount of oil used
Medium bowl: A medium bowl is perfect for creating an ice bath, which is a useful technique for cooling boiled eggs quickly and evenly. Simply fill the bowl with equal parts cold water and ice cubes. Once the eggs are cooked transfer them directly into the ice bath. This will stop the cooking process and help keep them from sticking to their shells.
The best way to store air fryer eggs is in an airtight container or bag in the refrigerator. They will stay fresh for up to 3 days when stored this way.
Tips for peeling hard-boiled egg
When peeling hard-boiled eggs, the most important thing to remember is to start with a cold egg. Freshly boiled eggs can be difficult to peel since the warmth of the egg causes it to stick to the shell. To avoid this problem, immediately transfer your cooked eggs into a bowl of ice water and let them cool for at least 10 minutes before peeling. Additionally, you can try gently tapping the egg on a hard surface to help loosen the shell before peeling. This simple step can make all the difference when it comes to getting a clean peel!
You can serve air fryer eggs with a variety of sides, such as roasted vegetables, potato wedges, fresh greens, or a light salad. You can also top your egg with some herbs and spices for added flavor. Additionally, you could serve it with a side of toast or crackers to make it into more of a meal.
The cooking time for different air fryers can vary a little. The cooking time is determined largely by the size of the air fryer and the size of the eggs. Generally, smaller air fryers require a longer cooking time than larger ones since they have less space and may need to be cooked in batches. In addition, eggs that are larger in size will take longer to cook than smaller eggs.
