If you’re craving a delicious Sunday brunch dish, you should try making this air fryer frittata omelette. It tastes amazing! This dish features a crispy exterior with a fluffy interior that’s packed full of veggies and cheesy goodness. It’s soooo good!
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.
Additions And Substitutions For Frittata
Just because I made my frittata this way, doesn’t mean you have to. That’s the best part of this recipe. It’s literally a blank canvas where you can add whatever ingredients you want!
Here are some additions or substitutions I highly recommend:
These are some of my favorite chopped veggies to add the frittata omelette!
- White onions
- Green onions
- Tri-colored bell peppers
For this recipe, I went ahead and used whichever shredded cheese I had in the fridge but you can easily swap it out for any of these cheeses!
- Pepper jack
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.
Now, sometimes, I like to add a classic American breakfast spin and serve my egg frittata with some:
However you serve it, it’s a super yummy breakfast option!
