Can You Put Eggos In An Air Fryer?

Yes, you can cook Eggo waffles in an air fryer, and it’s an excellent way to achieve a crispy exterior while keeping the inside warm and fluffy. Air frying Eggo waffles is quick, easy, and offers a delicious texture that’s hard to achieve with a toaster. Here’s how to do it:

Air Fryer Eggo Waffles Recipe


  • Eggo waffles (or any brand of frozen waffles)


  1. Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 360°F (about 182°C). While some air fryer models don’t require preheating, doing so can help the waffles cook more evenly.
  2. Place Waffles in Air Fryer: Place the frozen Eggo waffles in the air fryer basket in a single layer. There’s no need to thaw them first. Avoid overlapping or stacking the waffles to ensure they cook evenly.
  3. Cook: Air fry the waffles for about 4-6 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy to your liking. The exact time may vary depending on your air fryer model and how crispy you like your waffles.
  4. Serve: Carefully remove the waffles from the air fryer (they will be hot) and serve immediately with your favorite toppings, such as syrup, butter, fresh fruit, or whipped cream.

Tips for Perfect Air Fryer Eggo Waffles

  • No Oil Needed: Unlike other air-fried foods, you don’t need to add oil to Eggo waffles when air frying. They’ll crisp up nicely on their own.
  • Single Layer: For the best results, cook the waffles in a single layer and don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket. This allows the hot air to circulate freely around each waffle.
  • Adjust Cooking Time: Start checking the waffles after 4 minutes and adjust the cooking time as needed. Some people prefer their waffles extra crispy, while others like them a bit softer.
  • Reheating: Air fryers are also great for reheating leftover waffles. Just reduce the cooking time slightly since you’re only warming them up.

Using an air fryer to cook Eggo waffles is a simple way to upgrade your breakfast or snack time. It’s quicker and more energy-efficient than heating up an oven, and it delivers superior texture compared to a microwave or toaster.
