Why cook eggs in the air fryer?
I know that hard boiling eggs isn’t rocket science, but let me tell you, cooking eggs with this method makes them so easy to peel. It’s the go to way I cook them now! You can also cook quite a few in one go.
You don’t need to add any water, just pop the eggs in and set the timer. I love how effortless this method is and you don’t need to keep an eye on them.
How long does it last?
This air fryer egg salad will keep well for 3 to 4 days in the fridge. Place in a container of covered with plastic wrap to keep it fresh. Because this salad contains mayo, don’t keep it out at room temperature for more than two hours.
What do you serve it with?
Hands down, my favorite way of enjoying this creamy egg salad is as a sandwich with whole grain bread with some fresh and crispy lettuce. It’s perfect to serve it lettuce wraps for a low carb meal. It’s great as a side dish too too, or place onto a fresh salad as a topping.
- Don’t let your eggs touch in the air fryer basket. This will allow them to cook evenly through.
- While your eggs are cooking, fill a large bowl with water and ice to place the cooked eggs in. This helps to cool them quickly so you can handle them, and also stops the cooking process so you have perfect hard boiled eggs.
- I prefer the flavor and texture of full fat mayonnaise, but you can use reduced fat or vegannaise if you prefer.
This air fryer egg salad has become a favorite in our house. So quick and simple, and I am seriously in love with how easy the eggs are to peel! Enjoy!
