Why make poached eggs in an air fryer instead of the oven? If you ask me, there’s one huge benefit to baking eggs in your air fryer: time. I’m not a morning person, so I don’t like to spend a ton of time or energy cooking breakfast. Cooking eggs in an air fryer takes about 10 minutes – less time than it takes just for my oven to heat up or a pot of water to boil!
