Can over-easy eggs be made in an air fryer?
I believe so, yes.
Just make sure you keep your temperature low (350 degrees) and check on your egg pretty consistently while it’s cooking until your desired doneness is achieved.
How long does it take to make a fried egg in the air fryer?
For over-hard fried eggs, I cooked mine for approximately 8 minutes with no flipping required.
For cooking over-easy eggs, the cooking time will be less.
Can I use oil instead of butter to fry eggs? If so, what type of oil is best?
Yes! Using oil is a great option for frying eggs.
My favorite oil of choice for making fried eggs is a good quality olive oil.
Other good oil choices for frying eggs is avocado oil, peanut oil, safflower oil, vegetable oil, canola oil, and don’t forget the ever-popular bacon grease!
What type of aluminum pan works best in an air fryer?
They can be bent (if needed) to conform to the shape of your particular air fryer.
They can also be washed (if desired) and reused, time and again. Or, they can be disposed of after use. Your call.
What other types of foods can be made in an air fryer?
So glad you asked!!
