Ingredients and Variations

EGGS: Egg bites can be made from a combination of whole eggs, egg whites, or even store-bought liquid eggs in a carton. Easy peasy! Mix in some taco seasoning for Tex-Mex style egg bites!

MEAT: Bacon goes hand-in-hand with eggs, but we also like chopped ham, sliced breakfast sausage, even leftover shredded chicken, beef, or pork.

VEGGIES: We love ALL the veggies for egg bites! Make sure they are chopped or diced finely so the egg bites stay intact. Whatever works in an omelet, works for egg bites! Try colorful bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, spinach, even diced zucchini!

Kitchen Tip These cook quickly so veggies won’t have the chance to cook through. Use cooked veggies or even pop them in the microwave for a minute before adding to the egg mixture.

How to Make Air Fryer Egg Bites

It’s easy to make air fryer egg bites!

  1. Whisk eggs until fluffy. Add remaining ingredients (per recipe below) & pour into silicone molds, ¾ full.
  2. Stir the eggs partway through cooking.
  3. Cook until eggs are set.

We use this silicone mold for egg bites (and in the Instant Pot too). You can use a small muffin pan or even small ramekins that fit in your air fryer.  If your molds are a different size, they may need a bit more or less time to cook.

Tips for Perfection

  • Whisk the eggs until they’re a fluffy pale yellow. You should see no bits of white or yolk.
  • Don’t add too many mix-ins or the egg bites won’t hold together.
  • Precook veggies and squeeze out any moisture before adding.
  • Stir the eggs after 7 or 8  minutes. This helps distribute the add ins (or they will sink or float depending on what you’ve added).
  • Eggs will continue to cook after they’ve been removed from the air fryer so do not overcook.

Leftovers

Keep egg bites in a zippered bag or a container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

Freeze them individually in plastic wrap and then in a zippered bag.

Pull one or two out and reheat in a preheated air fryer for about 4 minutes. Or, put the frozen egg bites in a backpack or briefcase and they’ll be thawed by lunchtime!

Eggs for Days!
