How to Make Ninja Foodi Hard Boiled Eggs
A full printable version of this recipe with ingredient measurements is available at the bottom of this post.
STEP ONE: Grab your Ninja Foodi and place 1 cup of water into the inner gray pot. Next, place the eggs into the crisp basket, otherwise known as the air fryer basket.
STEP TWO: Cook the eggs on High Pressure for 4 minutes, then do a natural pressure release for 4 minutes. Follow that with a quick release, which should last for about 1 minute and 30 seconds.
STEP THREE: Remove the eggs from the basket and place them in an ice bath to cool for 4 minutes — don’t skip this step as it stops the eggs from cooking.
STEP FOUR: Crack and peel the eggs. I like to do it under running water as it makes the peeling process a lot easier.
STEP FIVE: Place your Ninja Foodi hard boiled eggs on a plate and gently dry them with a paper towel or clean cloth. Serve as desired (I like mine with a little salt and pepper) and enjoy! You can also make hard boiled eggs in the Ninja Foodi to use in salads or for deviled eggs (find recipes here and here).
