How to Make Air Fryer Scrambled Eggs
Place the butter in an air fryer pan and cook at 300 degrees until melted about 2 minutes. This allows the air fryer to preheat without actually waiting for it to preheat.
While the butter is melting in the air fryer, whisk together the eggs and milk, then add salt and pepper to taste.
Adding milk to your scrambled eggs creates a creamier consistency.
Add the egg mixture to the air fryer pan and cook on 300 degrees.
After about 3 minutes, open the air fryer and push the eggs to the inside of the pan and stir them around using a small plastic or silicone spatula.
It’s important to never use metal utensils on a nonstick surface. This could cause your air fryer pan to scratch or even cause your air fryer to peel.
Cook the air fryer scrambled eggs for 2 more minutes, then add the cheddar cheese and stir the eggs again.
Finish the eggs by cooking them 2 more minutes.
Remove from the pan, taste and add more salt and pepper if needed, then enjoy!
What Temperature Should I Cook Air Fryer Scrambled Eggs?
Cooking scrambled eggs in an air fryer on lower heat works the best to cook the eggs thoroughly.
I recommend cooking them at 300 degrees. It only takes 9 minutes to cook 2 eggs and they won’t burn easily.
How to Cook Air Fryer Bacon and Eggs
Nothing says air fryer breakfast like cooking scrambled eggs and bacon in an air fryer.
If you have an air fryer rack, you can simply cook both at the same time.
I personally prefer to cook them separately. Just follow this air fryer scrambled eggs recipe, then this air fryer bacon recipe.
After the bacon is cooked, place the scrambled eggs back in the air fryer at 300 degrees for about 2 minutes to heat them back up if necessary.
Can I Cook This Recipe with More Eggs?
Yes! This recipe can be doubled or even more depending on your air fryer pan size.
Just allow slightly more time for extra scrambled eggs to cook.
