These airfryereggbites are so perfect for your weekly meal prep, and they make busy mornings a breeze! Once they have cooled to room temperature, store them in an airtight container in the fridge, and they will keep for up to a week.

Just let them cool to room temp and place in a freezer safe container. These egg bites are high in protein and low in saturated fat, so they are a great way to start your day.

I like to enjoy them as part of an easy lunch too, paired with a fresh a vibrant salad. You can easily serve them as a main meal as well, alongside some veggie sides.

I love the slightly crispy top and the middles are super moist and tasty. Add the chopped green onions and ham (if using) and put the silicone mold in the air fryer basket.

Yes, you can make them right at home in 10 minutes now for breakfast or a low-carb snack. We have made Starbucks sous vide eggs before in the Instant Pot, but you can’t get a crispy top like these.

Using these cute little silicone muffin cups there are TONS of possibilities and everyone can customize their own. That’s what makes it a killer protein packed start to any day.

You could also crack them into these silicone baking cups without any other items and cook at 300 degrees for about 8 minutes. Timing will depend on whether you want soft-boiled, or your yolks to be hard.

You really shouldn’t put food directly on the base of the air fryer because it might hinder the circulating the air properly. That’s what makes the food crispy and the bottom will be flat without any air flow hitting it.

You can keep these in the fridge for about 4-5 days, which is PERFECT for healthy breakfasts throughout the week. If you see extra liquid in the bottom of your storage container because of all the vegetables don’t worry, it’s totally normal.

Place 4 silicone cupcake holder into your air fryer basket. Top each one off with some diced onions, green pepper, bacon bits and cheese.

Air fry at 300 degrees for 10-13 minutes or until lightly browned on top and enjoy! This is one of the simplest recipes, although to figure out the cooking temperature and time, I did burn a few eggs.

Baked eggs are one of the most popular breakfast items in the world. Now, I’m not talking about regular beating, I am talking about whisking the eggs, which lets some airs enter them when you whisk fast, and your eggs end up nice and fluffy.

I love using my Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker) for all the recipes, I usually use my burner stove for, they are faster and require less clean up, plus my son travels a ton for hockey, so I can take the Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker) on the road, so it saves me money by not eating out at restaurants, since eating out with 20 hockey-playing boys gets very expensive, very soon. First tip: If you make these, splurge and get ramekins, when I tried other containers they all failed.

Just note, you may need to partook some heartier ingredients like potatoes or leeks before cooking the egg bites. In full disclosure, I also made these egg bites in the Instant Pot.

The egg bites turned out well, but it made a MESS in my pressure cooker. The eggs webbed above the muffin cups, and they were foamy on the outside.

Ain’t nobody got time for cleaning egg slime off of the muffin cups and my IP! I also tested making these with a higher temperature, but the outsides browned too much before the centers were done.

If that happens to you too, pop the underdone egg bite in the microwave for 30 seconds. Or remove the egg bites that are done, and continue cooking the remaining ones for 1-2 minutes.

For the easiest prep, I recommend assembling the egg bites in the air fryer. Or if you are using the oven, add the ingredients directly to the muffin tin.
