Air fryer hard boiled eggs are a fast, easy way to cook eggs, no boiling water required. This method results in eggs that are easy to peel.
If you make a lot of hard boiled eggs, you definitely want to try this method in the air fryer. No need to wait for any water to boil, just place the eggs in the air fryer basket, set the timer, and you’ll have perfectly cooked eggs—every time.
Once the eggs are cooked, place them in a bowl of cold water to cool them and stop the cooking process. They will peel so easily!
Once you have tried this method, you won’t go back to boiling water.
Pair the hard boiled eggs with my tasty dipping sauce made from Greek yogurt, herbs, and spices to make them even better.
Eggs are very nutritious. They contain protein, healthy fats, and many vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, iron, and folate.
Eggs also contain the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, which are important for maintaining the health of your eyes as you age.
Choline, a nutrient that is important for brain development and function, is also found in eggs.
In addition to the eggs, you just need a few ingredients to make the dipping sauce for this air fryer hard boiled eggs recipe.
Eggs: This recipe calls for six large eggs, which is a good amount to fit in most air fryer baskets. If you want to make more, I suggest air frying in batches to avoid overcrowding––which could lead to uneven cooking.
Greek yogurt: The dipping sauce is made from Greek yogurt. I love using Greek yogurt as a base for dipping sauces because its tanginess pairs well with herbs and spices.
Plus, yogurt is a healthier alternative to sour cream. Be sure to use plain, low-fat yogurt for a heart-healthy option.
Dried herbs and spices: Smoked paprika, garlic, onion powder, dill, and oregano are added to the Greek yogurt to make the dipping sauce. This combination of flavors offers a hint of smokiness from the paprika, and it’s packed with flavor.
Fresh parsley and red pepper flakes: A garnish of red pepper flakes adds a hint of heat, and fresh parsley adds a pop of freshness that elevates simple hard boiled eggs.
Air fryer hard boiled eggs are so easy and fast to make. You will love this method and never go back to boiling water again.
Place eggs in the air fryer, and cook for 12 minutes.
Place Greek yogurt, smoked paprika, dried garlic, onion powder, dried dill, and dried oregano together in a bowl to prepare the dip.
Mix the dip ingredients together. You can do this while the eggs are cooking.
Place the eggs in a bowl of cold water,
and peel them.
Slice the eggs in half,
and top them with the Greek yogurt sauce, red pepper flakes, and parsley.
It takes 12 minutes to hard boil eggs in the air fryer. For the most even cooking, I suggest preheating your air fryer first and then adding the eggs.
I found that cooking the eggs at 350° Fahrenheit for 12 minutes yielded the best result with perfectly cooked yolks.
No, there’s no water needed—that’s the best part! You just place the eggs in the air fryer basket once it has preheated and cook them for 12 minutes.
Once the eggs are cooked, place them in a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking process and make them easy to peel.
