How To Make Air Fryer Poached Eggs

Making poached eggs has never been easier! But you will need some silicone baking cups along with an air fryer.  

To begin, spray your silicone cups with nonstick cooking spray. You need to do this to make sure that the eggs don’t stick. You could also brush the cups with a bit of vegetable oil too.

Next, you need to heat up some water to poach the eggs in. So put 2 tablespoons of water into each baking cup. Then put the cups filled with water into the air fryer basket. Now, put the basket into the air fryer and heat the water for 4 minutes at 400℉.

Then very carefully remove the air fryer basket making sure not to spill any of the water. Now, crack an egg into each baking cup.
Next, slide the air fryer basket back into the air fryer and cook the eggs for 6 minutes at 360℉.

Cooking Tips

  • Adjust the time: If you like your poached eggs more done, leave them in the air fryer to cook for an extra minute.
  • Use Baking Cups – For the best results use silicone baking cups. Yet, you can also use well-greased ramekins.
  • Cook and serve – Poached eggs are best eaten immediately, but leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.

What To Serve With Air Fryer Poached Eggs

For a super easy breakfast, you can serve these beauties with a simple side of Air Fried Toast and crispy Air Fryer Bacon! Or better yet, on top of some Air Fried English Muffins with a bit of freshly cracked black pepper and a side of Instant Pot Steamed Spinach. Now that’s a healthy breakfast!

But don’t forget poached eggs aren’t just a breakfast food! They are wonderful when used to top salads like my Arugula Salad with Burrata and Figs or my Chicken Salad. You can even serve them over Sauteed Asparagus at a dinner party!
