I love eating eggs for breakfast. They're low carb, they're easy to cook, and they're filling as well. Not only that, but they take on flavors and ingredients so well! I swear that I can cook an egg recipe one day and make the same recipe again the next day, and it tastes like a totally different dish.
We tend to buy eggs in bulk from the store because I use them in a lot of recipes. From baking to breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes, there is always a need for eggs.
Once I started air frying eggs, it was a game-changer for sure. I love that these are fast and easy for busy mornings and everyone in the house loves the texture, too.

Eggs - Use any type of eggs that you'd like. Farm fresh, cage free, you know it. They all cook and eat well.
Cream cheese - Adding in the cream cheese adds the perfect creamy texture.
Diced ham - It's amazing how the ham adds the perfect salty flavor.
Shredded cheese - Choose your favorite type of shredded cheese and add it. I love using cheddar cheese.
Salt - Just a pinch of salt is all you need.
Pepper - This is optional but helps to enhance the flavors.
How To Make Air Fryer Omelet Bites
I love that these egg bites are low in carbohydrates and high in protein. They're great for boosting and fueling your energy for the day. Follow the simple instructions below to make these easy air fryer omelet bites.
Step One: Preheat the air fryer to 400. Spray your mold with cooking spray.
Step Two: Add the cream cheese and the eggs to the blender and mix well.
Expert Tip: You can also mix it in a small bowl with a whisk but make sure your eggs and cream cheese are both room temperature or the cream cheese won't incorporate.
Step Three: Add the shredded cheese and ham to the egg molds and then pour the egg mixture on top.
Step Four: Place the mold in the air fryer. Cook for 10-12 minutes. The internal temperature of baked eggs should be between 165-185.
Expert Tip: Don't worry if the egg mixture overflows a bit! Just pop them out and cut off the excess.
This egg dish is so versatile and easy to do! You'll love how you can easily change up the flavors of an air fryer frittata.
Add bacon bits - If you don't want to use home, switch it up and use bacon or bacon bits instead. Sprinkle in as many as you want!
Add more veggies - If you want to up the health factor, add in some onion, spinach, chopped bell pepper, diced tomato, mushroom, or any other vegetables that you're craving.
Sausage - Another yummy protein that you can add is sausage. When you put pork in egg recipes, it adds great flavor because of the sodium.
Use fresh herbs - Stirring in fresh basil or chopped rosemary is a super simple way to add fresh taste!
Spices - Add some garlic powder, onion powder, or even a pinch of nutmeg.
Mexican - Mix in some taco seasoning, omit the ham, and then top your air fryer omelet bites with salsa, sour cream, fresh cilantro, and guacamole.
Mediterranean - Feta cheese, fresh dill, red peppers, and even kalamata olives are fun and interesting mix-ins.
