Air Fryer Crisp Egg

Air Fryer Crisp Egg

This recipe is a foolproof way to achieve perfectly crispy fried eggs in your air fryer, with a runny yolk and fluffy whites. It’s quick, easy, and healthier than traditional frying, making it a great breakfast option for busy mornings.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 3-5 minutes

Servings: 1 egg per person

Intensity: Easy


  • 1 egg per person
  • Cooking spray (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  2. If desired, lightly spray a small ramekin or oven-safe dish with cooking spray. This helps prevent sticking, but isn’t necessary if your air fryer basket is well-coated.
  3. Crack an egg into the ramekin or directly into the air fryer basket.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Place the ramekin or basket in the air fryer and cook for 3-5 minutes, depending on how runny you like your yolk. For a sunny-side up egg with a runny yolk, cook for 3 minutes. For a more firm yolk, cook for 4-5 minutes.
  6. Carefully remove the ramekin or basket from the air fryer and serve immediately.


  • You can add a pat of butter or drizzle of olive oil to the ramekin before adding the egg for extra flavor.
  • If you’re cooking multiple eggs, don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket. Cook them in batches if necessary.
  • Experiment with different toppings, such as cheese, herbs, or hot sauce.

  • Air Fryer Crispy Egg Cups: Follow the same recipe, but instead of cracking the egg directly into the ramekin, line it with a small piece of bread (crust removed) and crack the egg into the bread cup. This creates a delicious and portable egg breakfast.
  • Air Fryer Deviled Eggs: Make your favorite deviled egg recipe, but instead of boiling the eggs, cook them in the air fryer for 8-10 minutes. Peel the eggs and fill them as usual.

I hope you enjoy this recipe for Air Fryer Crisp Eggs! It’s a quick and easy way to make a delicious and healthy breakfast.

Additional Notes:

  • Be careful when handling hot ramekins or baskets.
  • Adjust the cooking time according to your desired level of doneness.
