Ingredients for Air Fryer Egg Bites

Egg Bites Ingredients

Mix and match ingredients or use up leftovers!

EGGS: Whole eggs are preferred for this recipe, but all egg whites will work for less cholesterol and more protein. Use 8 eggs for an all-egg white bite.

CHEESE: Cheese holds everything together. Mozzarella has a mild flavor that goes with the other ingredients, but so will Swiss, Cheddar, or a Mexican blend.

PROTEIN: Ham is already cooked and can be found pre-diced in small pieces that are perfect for egg bites. Bacon bits or breakfast sausages cut into small pieces are good, too.

VEGETABLES: Any veggies will do! Hash browns, diced potatoes, chopped spinach, bell peppers, mushrooms, green onions, even jalapenos or sliced black olives will make colorful and nutritious egg bites.

How to Make Air Fryer Egg Bites

Air fryer egg bites turn out with the perfect texture and it’s so easy to make them:

  3. Stir in the remaining ingredients (per recipe below) and pour the mixture into silicone molds.
  4. Stir egg bites halfway through cooking.

Egg Bite Tips & Tricks

  • Always preheat the air fryer before cooking any recipe.
  • Avoid overfilling the egg mixture with too many add-ins or they won’t hold together when they are removed from the silicone molds.
  • Egg bites can get rubbery if they are overcooked. To check for doneness, insert a toothpick in the center of one and if it comes out clean, remove them from the air fryer and let them set about 2 minutes before removing from the mold

Keep leftover air fryer egg bites in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat them in a bowl covered with a clean paper towel to create steam. Freeze leftover egg bites by wrapping them individually in plastic wrap and then placing them in a zippered bag. For best results let them come to room temperature before reheating.

  1. Wrong cooking time! Takes at least 20 minutes to cook. Preheated air fryer and followed recipe to a tee. I also have the same silicone egg mold.

    1. Hey PR! Thanks for letting us know. We have reviewed the recipe and confirmed the cooking times to ensure the recipe is correct.

  2. I am interested in trying to make little morsels, using shredded potatoes, eggs and a little rice flower to hold it all together. The above recipe pretty closely matches what I am trying to make Any reason why this wouldn’t work? Thanks!

    1. Hi Cathy, we haven’t tried this recipe with shredded potatoes but I think it should work well. We would love to hear how it turns out.

    1. Oh no, sorry that happened, Jim! If your silicone egg bites mold is larger than ours it may take additional time to cook. Also, be sure to preheat your air fryer for the best results.

      1. 4 stars
        Every air fryer works differently! I have found that when I first try a recipe I need to check it and be prepared to adjust either the temperature and/or the time needed to cook the item. Once you have it nailed down, you can do it the same way every time. I still love getting ideas from Pinterest and all the wonderful people who contribute their efforts to making us all better cooks. Thank you for your ideas!
