Air Fryer Deviled Eggs Ingredients:

  • 6 large eggs, refrigerated
  • 3 tbsp kewpie mayo, or regular mayo
  • 2-2.5 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1.5 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp coarse salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • Garnish chive, chopped
  • Sprinkle Sweet paprika, or smoked paprika

How To Make Air Fryer Deviled Eggs:


Preheat the air fryer following the default setting.


Place a trivet inside the air fryer basket to keep the eggs in place so they won’t roll around. Place six eggs on top of the trivet with some space between them.


Air fryer the eggs at 280°F (138°C) for 13 minutes. After that, use an oven mitten to carefully remove the eggs (they are hot so be careful) and soak them in a bowl of cold water until they are warm to the touch.


To peel the eggs, gently and carefully tap the eggshell from the dull side first. It’ll be easier to peel.


With a small pairing knife, slice the eggs in half lengthwise. Then, use a small teaspoon to remove the egg yolk and put it in a mini food processor or a bowl.


Combine the egg yolks with seasonings from mayo to black pepper. Pulse a few times until the egg yolks and the seasonings are fully incorporated. The texture should be creamy and smooth. You can also use a fork to mash and mix them to smooth.


Use a small teaspoon, or a small pastry piping bag if you have one, and scoop or pipe the egg yolk mixture into the white parts of the eggs.


Place them on a large serving plate. Garnish with chive and paprika. Serve at room temperature.

Recipe Notes:

A different air fryer will have a slightly different cooking time and temperature. It’s best to test your air fryer with 1 whole egg first before you cook a half dozen.

Tools & equipment: A trivet that can be placed INSIDE of the air fryer basket (to keep the eggs stay in place in the air fryer).

Optional: A small pastry pipping bag (to pip the egg yolk mixture into the egg white).Optional: A small mini food processor, about 1 cup (I have this one).
