If you’ve ever tried to make a poached egg before, you know the struggle. Getting the water boiling just right, making sure it’s swirling at the right speed in the right direction and even checking the freshness of your eggs are all important factors. And on top of all that, you have to make sure the egg doesn’t break as soon as you set it in! Of all the ways to cook an egg, poaching tends to be one of the most frustrating.

That’s why you should know how to make a poached egg in the air fryer. It’s an easy, quick hack that will make your mornings so much better.

How to Make a Poached Egg in the Air Fryer

This wonderful idea comes from TikTok user Eileen Bell over at @blendedbybell. As I mentioned before, poaching an egg can be a difficult task. Some of us can’t seem to get it right—and I’m one of them! It’s hard to keep trying when all you do is end up wasting all the eggs in your fridge. That’s why Eileen thought there had to be an easier way—and she was right! This trick is a lifesaver for all of us air fryer owners out there.

Here’s what you’ll do: 
  • Boil water and pour it into a ramekin
  • Break an egg into the ramekin
  • Place the ramekin in the air fryer
  • Cook the egg for 11 minutes at 340°F
  • Remove the ramekin from the air fryer

Yes, it’s that simple, and you’ll come out with a perfectly poached egg every time. Hallelujah!
