What you’ll need to make this recipe.
How to make this recipe
To get started, you’ll need cupcake wrappers. Paper or silicone work here. I use paper for convenience, but the silicone will hold up a little better especially when working with raw eggs.
1 – Slice the bacon strips in half. Once they’re cut, line them around the sides of the wrappers.
2 – Set the bacon lined wrappers inside the air fryer basket. Then, carefully crack an egg inside the wrapper, using the bacon as a border.
3 – Sprinkle with some salt and pepper, if desired.
4 – Carefully close air fryer basket. Turn on to 330 degrees, and cook for 10 minutes.
The time will vary depending on how cooked you like your eggs. If you like your yolks a little runny, start with 8 minutes, then check the doneness of the eggs. 10 minutes will cook the egg yolks completely through.
5 – When they’re done, remove the baked egg cups carefully, they will be very hot. Top with green onions, or any toppings you like.
How do I store homemade bacon and egg cups?
I recommend eating the baked egg cups fresh. You can refrigerate them and heat them up for later, but the consistency of the egg may become rubbery.
