Check out my recipe for making perfectly cooked, Ninja Foodi Grill Hard Boiled Eggs using the Air Crisp function!
When you air fry eggs, you can vary the temperature to make hard-boiled, soft boiled eggs, or any place in between! Perfectly cooked hard-boiled eggs work great for making deviled eggs, Easter eggs, potato salad, egg salad sandwiches or for topping salads! For a quick snack, just sprinkle some salt and pepper or bagel seasoning on top!
Whether you are using large eggs or smaller eggs, you can make perfectly cooked eggs without having to boil water on the stove!
While I used the Ninja Foodi Grill to make my hard-boiled eggs, you can use any type of air fryer that you would like, as long as it has a rack or air fryer basket inside of it. Since air fryers vary in size and design, they may not all cook exactly the same. If you are using a different air fryer, I would recommend testing the cook times on a couple of eggs before fully committing to the time on all of your eggs.
Don't have an air fryer? If you've got a pressure cooker, you're in luck because you can also make hard-boiled eggs in the regular Ninja Foodi that has the pressure cooker function! Check out my recipe for making pressure-cooked hard-boiled eggs here!
One of the tricks to getting perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs is the use of an ice water bath! If you don't have a lot of ice, you can use really cold water instead. But, the idea is that when you remove the eggs from the air fryer, you want them to stop cooking immediately. Placing them in an ice bath cools the eggs off quickly and stops the cooking process!
Tips for making Ninja Foodi Grill Hard Boiled Eggs
Yes! You can! Since the Ninja Foodi Grill has an air-crisp function, it cooks hard-boiled eggs just like any other air fryer can. Using an air fryer to hard boil your eggs means that you don't have to boil water on the stove top and the process is pretty hands-off. Simply set the temperature and timer, put the eggs in the air fryer basket, let them cook, and then put them in an ice bath when they are finished cooking!
Yes! You can make hard-boiled eggs using your Ninja air fryer. I used the Ninja Foodi grill, but any air fryer can be used for this recipe. Make sure that you are using a crisping basket or some sort of wire rack.
The most common temperature to air fry hard-boiled eggs is 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Cooking at this temperature ensures that the eggs cook evenly and do not crack during the cooking process.
It can take anywhere from 10-16 minutes to air fry hard boiled eggs. The longer the eggs air fry for, the more done the yolk will be.
9-10 Minutes- Yolk and white will be runny
11-12 Minutes- White will be cooked, yolk will be runny
12-13 Minutes- White will be cooked, yolk will be barely runny in the center
14-16 Minutes- Yolk and white will be cooked hard
Yes, it is perfectly safe to hard boil eggs in an air fryer. You're not really "boiling" the eggs since no water is used. Instead, you are cooking the eggs using the hot air that circulates inside of the air fryer to cook the eggs.
Yes! You can. I would recommend peeling the eggs, put in an air-tight container, and then refrigerate them for up to 5 days. If you prefer to store the eggs in their shells, there's no need to put them in any containers. I do not recommend freezing hard-boiled eggs as the texture changes drastically when thawed.
