Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Cooking Time: 6 minutes
Total Time: 8 minutes
Servings: 1-2
Intensity: Easy


  • Eggs (as many as desired)
  • Cooking spray or oil (optional, for greasing)


  1. Preheat Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 325°F (163°C) for about 2 minutes.
  2. Prepare Eggs:
    • Crack each egg into a small bowl or ramekin, ensuring that the yolks remain intact.
  3. Grease Air Fryer Basket (Optional):
    • If desired, lightly grease the air fryer basket with cooking spray or a small amount of oil to prevent sticking.
  4. Poach Eggs in Air Fryer:
    • Carefully slide the cracked eggs into the preheated air fryer basket, ensuring they are spaced apart.
    • Air fry the eggs at 325°F (163°C) for 6 minutes for a runny yolk or slightly longer for a firmer yolk, depending on your preference.
  5. Check Doneness:
    • Check the eggs towards the end of the cooking time to achieve the desired level of doneness.
    • For runny yolks, the whites should be set, and the yolks should still be soft and runny.
    • For firmer yolks, the whites and yolks will be more set.
  6. Serve: Once cooked to your liking, carefully remove the poached eggs from the air fryer basket using a slotted spoon.
  7. Season and Enjoy:
    • Season the poached eggs with salt and pepper or your favorite herbs and spices, if desired.
    • Serve the air-fried poached eggs immediately while they are warm and enjoy them on their own, on toast, or as part of a breakfast dish.


  • Adjust the cooking time slightly based on the size of your eggs and your preferred level of yolk doneness.
  • You can experiment with different temperatures and cooking times to achieve the perfect poached egg consistency for your taste.

Air fryer poached eggs are a quick and easy way to enjoy perfectly cooked eggs without the need for boiling water or using a stovetop. Enjoy your delicious and fluffy poached eggs!
