How To Make Air Fryer Egg Salad

Place eggs in air fryer basket and cook on 250 for 17 minutes. Remove the eggs and place them in a cold-water bath. Let cool then remove eggshells.

Cut the eggs in half and remove the yolk. In a mixing bowl, add the yolks, mayonnaise, and spices. Mix until smooth. Spread eggs salad mixture onto sandwich bread and serve cut or whole.

How to clean your Air Fryer after cooking eggs

Immediately clean out fryer basket using paper towels, a brush, and warm, soapy water.

Eggs can leave an oily residue on dishes and utensils, so coating your paper towel with distilled white vinegar or grease-cutting solution will make for easier clean-up.

If the air fryer has sat for a significant amount of time, then allow the fryer basket to soak inside the sink filled with warm soapy water and half a cup of distilled vinegar for approximately 30 minutes.

FAQs

Can I make this sandwich the night before?

Yes, however, we suggest toasting the bread the same day to prevent sogginess.

Is Air Fryer Egg Salad vegan friendly?

If you have allergies or are looking for a healthier alternative, then you can definitely substitute regular eggs with options like Follow Your Heart Vegan Egg or Orgran Vegan Easy Egg.

Can I toast my bread inside of the air fryer?

Absolutely! Follow the settings on your air fryer and we suggest placing aluminum foil in the bottom of the fryer basket and spraying with non-stick spray as well.
