Poached. Basted. Hard boiled.
I'm all in.
I was aware of the hard boiled egg in the Instant Pot but I use my air fryer daily and I don't my IP. Why not use it for eggs? Though I have a few easy egg recipes for the air fryer I will start with hard boiled. It's a diverse use of eggs. They can be eaten alone with a sprinkle of salt and pepper or in a salad. Great source of protein.
I bought the Air Fryer Accessories 7pcs for Gowise Phillips and Cozyna or More Brand, fit all 3.7QT 5.3QT 5.8QT with 7 Inch Diameter. It comes with 1 Cake Barrel, 1 Pizza Pan (I use for fried eggs), 1 Metal Holder, 1 Multi-Purpose Rack with Skewers,1 Silicone Mat, 1 tong and 1 Pan gripper.
Because of my food allergies, I must be careful what kind of eggs I use. I've NEVER had issues with Vital Farms.
The air fryer I own is GoWISE USA 5.8-Quarts 8-in-1 Electric Air Fryer XL. Times may vary depending on size and amount of heat it pumps out. I typically make two eggs, it's enough for me but others like to make half a dozen.
I was pleasantly surprised how easy the shells came off. It's one of the things I used to hate about hard boiled eggs.
What equipment you will need:
2 cold eggs but more than welcome to use more.
Insert wire rack in the basket. Place eggs on top of the wire rack. Carefully close the air fryer. Set the temp of the air fryer to 250 for 17 minutes. The time may need to lengthen if you have a small air fryer. And you don't need to preheat.
Prepare the ice water bath.
When done take them out with tongs and into the ice water. I leave mine in for about fifteen minutes.
Peel and enjoy!
I recommend testing with one egg. Get a feel for the process and the air fryer.
They also go great with garlic and basil infused olive oil (Low FODMAP friendly). Next recipe...
