Air Fryer Frittata Omelette

I love to make frittatas for breakfast so I decided to try and cook it in the air fryer to see if it changed the texture or flavors—it didn’t! It was just as yummy as when I make it in the oven but I felt it was faster to cook this way.

Don’t have an air fryer? That’s okay! You can easily transfer this recipe to cook it in the oven. Follow the instructions on how to make an oven-baked egg frittata in this post!

How To Make A Fritatta In The Air Fryer

Before you start cooking, make sure to spray the bottom and sides of a baking dish that fits inside the air fryer with some cooking spray (I used the 7-inch springform pan that fits into both my Air Fryer and Instant Pot).

After you are done prepping, place the baking dish inside the air fryer basket.

In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, your choice of vegetables, salt, pepper, and the shredded cheese.

Once all of the ingredients have been combined, pour the egg mixture into the baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining shredded cheese over the top.

Cook the frittata in the air fryer at 360 degrees for about 20 minutes or until the egg mixture is set.

What To Serve With Air Fried Frittata

This crispy air fryer frittata is absolutely delicious on its own but when I want to make a nice breakfast, I love to go full out! I’ll pair the veggie frittata with a nice refreshing salad packed with lettuce spring mix, cherry tomatoes, and a light lemon vinaigrette.
