Air-Fried Deviled Eggs

Take boring deviled eggs up a notch or ten. Just add pork rind crumbs and an air-fryer and you won’t be able to put these down. Plus, they have ZERO carbs and are loaded with healthy fat and protein.

When we moved into our current house, one of our top kitchen priorities was to get rid of the above-the-oven microwave and install a hood. We knew that removing the microwave would be a change for the whole family, since we had gotten so used to utilizing it for any heating or reheating that needed to be done. The logical replacement would be a toaster oven for most needs and then just deal with the other situations as they came up.

We opted to get the Instant Pot Omni Plus Air Fryer Toaster Oven. We already love the Instant Pot brand, and this toaster oven served multiple purposes, AND it had air fryer functionality. Seemed perfect. The day we brought it home, no joke, the microwave quit working. I think it felt betrayed and just gave up on life.

Now, back to that toaster oven. It’s seriously the best. We use it every day, multiple times a day, and multiple different functions a day. The most frequent item being cooked in there is steak, because meat, but these Air-Fried Deviled Eggs are in the top 5 for sure.

Since we are always swimming in fresh eggs, I like to hard boil them in the Instant Pot using the 5-5-5 method (perfect every time) and keep a bowl of them, peeled, in the fridge at all times. Makes for a quick snack for the kids, easy to whip up some egg salad, or throw together some deviled eggs.

Ingredients for Air Fryer Deviled Eggs

Ingredients for the Filling

While deviled eggs are already delicious on their own, air-frying them with a coating of perfectly-seasoned pork rind crumbs takes it to the next level. And because these are coated with pork rinds instead of traditional breading, they are zero carb, and loaded with healthy fat and protein. Win-win!

How-To Instructions (for the eggs)

  1. Spray the bottom of the air-fryer basket with the avocado oil and set aside.
  2. Cut the hard boiled eggs in half. Remove the yolks and place in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. In a separate small bowl, add the 1 raw egg and whisk until no globs of white or yolk remains. It needs to be smooth to coat the hard-boiled eggs.
  4. Add the pork rind crumbs, Savory Salt blend, and parsley in a separate small bowl. Stir to combine well.
  5. Dip one of the egg white halves in the beaten egg, making sure to coat the inside cavity as well. Gently shake off any excess. Coat the dipped egg white in the pork rind crumbs, gently pressing the crumbs to make sure they adhere, getting them inside the cavity as well.
  6. Repeat for all remaining egg white halves and place on the oil-sprayed basket. Spray with a light coating of the avocado oil spray.
  7. Cook in the air-fryer at 350°F for 6 minutes. Do not turn the eggs at any point during cooking.
  8. Gently remove from air fryer, being careful not to let the breading on the bottom stick to the basket.

How-to Instructions for the filling

  1. While the egg whites are cooking, mash together the egg yolks, mayo, mustard, and 1/8 tsp Savory Salt Blend with a fork until smooth. Don’t worry if there are a few lumps.
  2. Using a piping bag (if you’re feeling fancy) or a spoon, pipe or scoop the topping into the cavity of each air-fried egg. Top with a sprinkle of paprika and some chopped bacon bits, if desired.
  3. Serve immediately. Best eaten same day. If making in advance, do not add the yolk filling to the deviled eggs until just before ready to serve.
