poached eggs 2

Love poached eggs with Hollandaise sauce but do not have the time? The poached eggs can be easily done in the air fryer while the lemony mayo sauce is a quick, easy and healthier alternative to the traditional sauce.


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup boiling water divided
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp melted unsalted butter
  • 12 tsp lemon juice
  • 12 tbsp water
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper optional
  • 1 tbsp chopped scallions
  • 1 tbsp bacon bits optional
  • Ham and Biscuits optional


Place the bakeware inside the air fryer basket and pour 1/4 cup boiling water into the each bakeware. Crack an egg into each bakeware and air fry at 380F (190C) for about 5-6 minutes.

Take a medium bowl to whisk the butter, mayonnaise, water, and cayenne pepper together.

To assemble, place the biscuit on the bottom followed by ham, and poached egg. Spoon the sauce over the egg and sprinkle some bacon bits and green onion to serve.
