• 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup water or chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce (optional)
  • Chopped green onions or parsley for garnish (optional)


  • Air fryer
  • Heatproof bowl or ramekins that fit into your air fryer basket
  • Whisk or fork
  • Fine mesh strainer (optional)


Prepare the Eggs:

  • Crack the eggs into a bowl.
  • Add water or chicken broth to the eggs.
  • If desired, add salt and soy sauce for extra flavor.
  • Whisk the mixture until well combined. For an extra smooth texture, you can strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer.
    Prepare the Air Fryer:
  • Preheat your air fryer to 300°F (150°C). Preheating usually takes about 3-5 minutes.
    Pour the Egg Mixture:
  • Pour the egg mixture into heatproof bowls or ramekins that fit into your air fryer basket.
  • Cover the bowls with aluminum foil to prevent water from dripping into the eggs and to maintain moisture.
    Air Fry the Eggs:

  • Place the bowls into the air fryer basket.
  • Cook at 300°F (150°C) for about 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of your egg mixture and the size of your bowls. You can check the eggs after 15 minutes by gently shaking the bowl. If the center is still jiggly, cook for a few more minutes.
    Check for Doneness:
  • The steamed eggs are done when they have a smooth, custard-like texture and are set in the center. You can insert a toothpick into the center to check; it should come out clean.
  • Carefully remove the bowls from the air fryer.
  • Let them cool for a minute or two before removing the foil.
  • Garnish with chopped green onions or parsley if desired.

Texture: For an extra smooth texture, ensure the egg mixture is well-whisked and strained.
Flavor Variations: You can add other seasonings or ingredients like a dash of sesame oil, diced ham, or vegetables to the egg mixture before cooking.
Covering the Eggs: Covering the bowls with foil helps to trap steam and prevents the eggs from drying out.
Enjoy your delicious and silky air fryer steamed eggs!
