How to Air Fry Hard Boiled Eggs
To avoid cracking, allow the eggs to set out at room temperature for 30 minutes prior to air frying.
The abrupt change in temperature from cold to hot can cause the shell to crack.
Place all 12 eggs in your air fryer basket and close the lid and/or basket.
Set the temperature to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and the timer to 15 minutes.
Once they are done cooking you may notice some brown circles on the egg from cooking on the basket openings, this is normal.
Place eggs in a bowl filled with ice water for 5 minutes to stop further cooking.
