Fried eggs in an air fryer, how to make them super easy

Who can resist the pleasure of eating good fried eggs? Although it is true that it is an exquisite snack, it is also true that we are dealing with an excessively caloric preparation due to the large amount of oil used to fry them. If what you are looking for is lower the caloric intake without giving up the taste of fried eggsyou cannot miss the alternative that we are going to show you below, by using the air fryer.

With this new cooking method, which uses a constant flow of hot air Thanks to the fan that is installed in the upper part of the interior of the air fryer, food is cooked with hardly any use of oil.

To make a fried egg in the air fryer, we are going to need a container, preferably with a non-stick surface, so that the egg does not stick and is easier to handle. If we do not have a container with these characteristics, we can use the baking paperwhich we will previously grease with a little oil to make sure that the egg comes off easily once done.

As with all electrical appliances, the first times we cook a food it is always advisable to take the times and temperatures indicated below as a reference and, on subsequent occasions, adjust process according to the result obtained, since this may vary according to the characteristics of each device.

How to make fried eggs in an air fryer

The first thing we have to do is manually preheat the air fryer to 200℃, for at least 3 minutes. Meanwhile, brush a nonstick container with 1 small tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. If we do not have this type of container, we can use baking paper instead and proceed in the same way.

We program the fryer manually at a temperature of 170 ℃ and for 8 minutes of cooking. With this time, we will obtain a curdled egg white with a runny yolk. If we like all the curdled egg, we will give it 2 more minutes of cooking.
