These adorable bacon egg cups are a fresh take on the classic breakfast combo. I originally baked these, but they're amazing in the air fryer—no need to heat up the oven! —Carol Forcum, Marion, Illinois

  • 4 bacon strips
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions, chopped


  1. In a small skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain; keep warm.
  2. Preheat air fryer to 350°. In a small bowl, whisk 2 eggs, cream and pepper. Wrap 2 bacon strips around the inside edges of each of two 8-oz. ramekins or custard cups coated with cooking spray.
  3. Sprinkle ramekins with half the cheese and onions. Divide egg mixture between ramekins. Break 1 remaining egg into each ramekin. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and onions. Place ramekins on tray in air-fryer basket; cook until eggs are completely set, 15-20 minutes. Remove from basket; let stand 5 minutes before serving.
