Air fryer egg bites are an easy and nutritious breakfast. Each bite is filled with the flavors of cheese, onion, and bacon. They are super fast to make in the air fryer. It's a great way to ensure you're eating a protein-packed breakfast!
These egg bites are like small protein bites, filled with your favorite mix ins like cheese and vegetables. They are so light and fluffy too!
These egg bites will help you start your day out right. They can be made ahead and warmed up to eat while you are on the go and are perfect for busy mornings!
WHY YOU WILL LOVE THIS RECIPE
A few of the biggest reasons why you will love these egg bites is because they are full of protein, and you can add as many additional fillings as you like!
I like mine simple, with just cheese and bacon. But it is very easy to just add individual fillings once you mix the eggs. This way, even the pickiest of eaters in your family will be happy.

What you need to make Egg Bites in the Air Fryer
Besides the air fryer and silicone liners, you will need the following ingredients.
- large eggs
- bacon slices
- shredded cheese
- black pepper
- green onions
Of course, you can add any additional fillings, but these bites are really delicious with just what is listed in the recipe.
How to Make Air Fryer Egg Bites
To make these bites, you will need to grab a large mixing bowl. Add in the eggs and the milk, and whisk them together until they well combined.
Next, add in the crumbled bacon, grated cheese, and chopped green onions. Gently stir all of the ingredients together, so that your fillings are evenly distributed.
Once you are done, equally divide the egg mixture into the silicone mold, filling about ⅔ full.
Place the silicone egg mold in the air fryer basket, or on a baking sheet if you have a tray air fryer. Air fry at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for about 8-10 minutes.
Add different ingredients to change the flavors. Some of my favorite ingredients are:
- bell peppers
- roasted tomatoes
- cheddar cheese
- cottage cheese (for a high-protein egg bite)
You can also add different seasonings to increase the flavors. Some of my favorites include garlic powder and onion powder,
- The egg bites will puff up a little bit while cooking, so be sure to not overcrowd them in the basket.
- Six eggs make one dozen of the bites, so I grab two for a nice, filling breakfast.
You can serve these egg bites all on their own, or with some of your favorite breakfast sides. I love to serve mine with hash browns, breakfast potatoes, bacon, or sweeten things up with candied bacon.
Storage and Reheating
Make sure you save any leftover air fryer egg bites. These make the perfect grab-and-go breakfast and are a super easy meal prep for busy mornings when you need a healthy, protein-packed breakfast.
Store leftover air fryer egg bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. You can also store leftover egg bites in the freezer. Place them in a freezer bag or freezer-safe container and store them in the freezer for up to 1 month.
To reheat, place the egg cups in the air fryer and reheat at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 3 minutes cooking time, or until heated through.
Yes. This recipe for egg bites is very keto friendly. It is low in carbs, full of protein, and one serving has less than 10 grams of fat.
Yes. You may need to adjust the other ingredients slightly, or increase the egg whites to 8 instead of 6.
