Just because I’m limiting my calories doesn’t mean I’m limiting how good my food tastes. I had my first deep fried egg in Detroit on my birthday 2 years ago, and it blew me away. I’ve made a deep fried egg before, and it works out to four points per egg.
I wanted to see if I could duplicate it in the air fryer. It was tricky, but here’s how I did it. My only regret is that there wasn’t a runny yolk. I’m not sure if it’s possible to keep the yolk runny – which is why a poached the egg instead of hard boiling it – but I’m going to keep trying until I see if it’s possible. The result was delicious, with a nice crispy exterior.
Nutritional info was calculated based on the breadcrumbs, flour, and egg yolk that was actually needed to make the egg. After subtracting the flower, breadcrumbs, and egg yolk that remained, each air fried egg is 125 calories.
