Breakfast Hacks

  1. Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheating your air fryer is crucial for achieving consistent and even cooking. Just like with any other cooking method, allowing the air fryer to reach the desired temperature before adding your ingredients ensures optimal results.
  2. Adjust Cooking Times and Temperatures: Every air fryer is unique, so it’s essential to familiarise yourself with your specific model. Adjusting cooking times and temperatures may be necessary to achieve the desired doneness for each breakfast item. It’s a good idea to start with the recommended cooking times and make adjustments as needed based on your preferences.
  3. Use Greaseproof / Parchment Paper or Non-Stick Spray: To prevent sticking and make cleanup easier, consider using greaseproof/parchment paper or a light coating of non-stick spray on the basket or trays. This extra step will save you time and effort when cleaning up after breakfast.
  4. Don’t Overcrowd the Air Fryer: It’s tempting to try and cook everything at once, but overcrowding can hinder airflow and result in unevenly cooked food. For the best result, ensure there is enough space between ingredients for hot air to circulate freely. If you have a large batch to cook, consider doing it in batches.
  5. Turning The Food: To ensure even browning and crispiness, remember to turn the ingredients during the cooking process. This helps to distribute heat and oil, ensuring that all sides of your food receive equal attention. Set a timer to remind yourself, especially for items like bacon or hash browns.
  6. Experiment with Seasonings: Don’t be afraid to experiment with different seasonings, herbs, and spices to add a personal touch to your dishes. Add a sprinkle of smoked paprika to the tomatoes or some chopped chives to your scrambled egg.
  7. Prep Ahead of Time: Mornings can be busy, so consider prepping some ingredients the night before to save time. By having everything ready to go, you can enjoy a stress-free and efficient breakfast-making experience.
  8. Keep an Eye on Cooking Progress: It’s always important to keep a watchful eye on your food while it’s cooking. This allows you to adjust cooking times, turn ingredients if needed, and ensure everything is cooking as desired. Different foods may require different cooking times, so being mindful will help you achieve the perfect breakfast.
  9. Serve Immediately: For the best dining experience, serve your breakfast immediately after cooking. This ensures that the food retains its temperature.
  10. Enjoy the Process: Cooking breakfast in the air fryer should be an enjoyable experience. Embrace the versatility and convenience of this kitchen appliance.

By following these tips, you’ll be well on your way to cooking a perfect breakfast.
