Air Fryer Scrambled Eggs on a white plate

It’s an incredibly easy air fryer breakfast recipe and only includes 6 ingredients (salt and pepper included).

I cooked this recipe using my Cosori Air Fryer and its accessory set using the included pizza pan. I highly recommend the air fryer and you can read all about it in my honest review here.

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.

The Cosori Air Fryer Accessory Set I used would only fit about 3 eggs comfortably, but if you have a very large air fryer, like the Cuisinart Convention Toaster Oven Air Fryer, you can use more.

Just allow slightly more time for extra scrambled eggs to cook.

  1. Very tasty! I used 3 eggs–it only took a few minutes longer. Less mess than on top of stove, but ONLY if you are careful to butter the sides of the bowl before pouring in the eggs.

  2. 300 degrees my foot! This was nowhere near done in the time listed in the recipe. 400 degrees maybe but 300 degrees? Nope.

    • Hi Charles, so sorry this did not work for you. It can also depend on how big the container is and how many eggs are in there. More eggs or a smaller container will create a thicker layer to have to cook and will require a higher and longer temperature.

        • I would keep an eye on it with the rack still intact on the bottom rack if you have multiple ones. If you find the eggs moving at all, remove the rack and then cook it at the bottom. Each air fryer oven has its rack at a different level, but most should work.

  3. What happens if you don’t have a fryer basket I have a air fryer and it just has a small thing on the bottom I don’t have a basket what else can I use

    • Hi Melanie, if you have an air fryer oven, you would just put the air fryer pan on the lowest rack available.
