Okay. Do we really need another way to hard “boil” eggs? Probably not but this recipe shows exactly how versatile the air fryer really is. I wasn’t expecting it to work or work well but surprisingly it does. There is no sulfurous smell and icky green, gray yolk of an overcooked egg. The texture of the white isn’t chalky and the yolk isn’t grainy. The eggs peel like a dream. The shells practically slide off.
Will I always make my hard “boiled” eggs this way? I don’t know. I don’t eat a lot of hard “boiled” eggs but it was an interesting experiment to see just what the boundaries are on what the air fryer can do and do well.
Hard Boiled Eggs
From My Forking Life
1 – 6 large eggs
Preheat your air fryer to 270 degrees. Place raw eggs in the air fryer basket and cook at 270 degrees for 15 minutes. When the timer goes off, remove the eggs and place in a bowl of ice water for 5 minutes to stop the cooking. Peel and enjoy.
