Ingredients and Variations

Eggs – Whole eggs are preferred for this recipe, but egg whites will work for less cholesterol and more protein. Use 8 egg whites for an all-white egg 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 that is leftover or already cooked can be pre-diced in small pieces that are perfect for egg bites. Bacon bits or breakfast sausages cut into small pieces will work great, too.

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

How to Make Air Fryer Egg Bites

  1. Prepare silicone egg molds or grease small muffin tins.
  2. Whisk the eggs until they are light and fluffy.
  3. Stir in the remaining ingredients (per the recipe below) and pour the mixture into silicone molds.
  4. Stir egg bites halfway through cooking.

  • For best results, let the frozen bites 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.

        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!
