Air Fryer Bacon and Eggs

Boiled eggs in a egg holder

The classic bacon and eggs breakfast gets a fast and tasty twist with this recipe.  Plus, air frying your bacon and eggs saves you a few calories… not quite enough to call this health food but enough to lower your guilt!

Ingredients:

  • 6 strips of center cut nitrate-free bacon
  • 6 eggs
  • 6 cups of spinach
  • ½ tbsp. Olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Place eggs on top second rack of air fryer.  Set temperature at 270˚F.  Air fry for 15 minutes for hard boiled, 12 minutes for medium boiled and 10 minutes for soft boiled.  Remove and put in ice water bath for 2 minutes and peel shell.
  2. Place bacon in bottom rack.  Set temperature at 375˚F degrees and air fry for 12-14 minutes.  I prefer 14 minutes because I like my bacon extra crispy.  Serve over sauteed spinach cooked in olive oil.

Air Fryer Breakfast Potatoes

Air Fryer Breakfast Potatoes

Who doesn’t love home fries?  This recipe takes your home fries and makes them a spicy meal to fuel your day.  Make them to go with your bacon and eggs, or to eat just on their own.  Potatoes are packed with enough nutrients to go solo!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 pounds red potatoes (washed, chopped into 1/2 inch cubes (The smaller you cut your potatoes, the faster they will cook))
  • 1 yellow onion (peeled and chopped)
  • 1 green bell pepper (stem and seeds removed, chopped)
  • 1 jalapeno (stem and seeds removed, chopped)
  • 4 cloves garlic (sliced in half)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper (freshly ground)
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

Instructions:

  1. Optional but encouraged: place cut potatoes in a large bowl of water for at least 30 minutes to overnight.  I’ve found that when I soak my potatoes, they are extra soft in the middle and crisp up wonderfully.  Drain and shake off any excess water.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine.  Add everything to the air fryer.
  3. Cook at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes, shaking the basket to redistribute every 5-10 minutes or so (do this over the sink if your air fryer has slits on the side that will allow any liquid to spill out).  When done, find the largest potato and check for doneness.  If not completely soft in the middle, shake and continue cooking in five-minute increments until done.

Air Fryer Breakfast Omelette

Air Fryer Breakfast Omelette

When you think of breakfast, you think of omelettes. They’re a breakfast staple that can be a side dish or a full meal.  And you can do nearly anything you want to them!  This recipe uses tomato and basil to give you that Italian feel.

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 4 oz cream cheese (about 115g) softened at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • Shredded cheese
  • Bacon bits
  • Thinly sliced green onion

Instructions:

  1. Lightly grease a cake barrel and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl or an electric mixer, mix all the egg mixture ingredients.  There will still be small chunks of cream cheese, but they will melt and blend in with the mixture when heated.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into the cake barrel and drop in cherry tomato halves.  Air fry at 320F (160C) for 8 minutes.  Lightly stir the egg mixture and continue to air fry at 320F (160C) for 4-6 minutes until the egg is set.
  4. Sprinkle some cheese on top and air fry again at 320F (160C) for about 2 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle some bacon bits and green onion to serve.
