Easy Air-Fried Deviled Eggs

Eggs – Any hard-boiled eggs will do for this recipe; however, I most often make air fryer boiled eggs.
Filling – The yolk, mayonnaise, vinegar, and a tiny bit of mustard are the traditional ingredients in this recipe. Dill pickle juice can be used instead of vinegar if you’d like.
Breadcrumbs – Use plain Panko breadcrumbs for the best crunch and seasoned bread crumbs for a nice even coating.
Variations – Blend in some mashed avocado, dill, or sweet pickle relish, tapenade, or pesto to the yolks and create a colorful presentation for guests to select from! Garnish air-fried deviled eggs with bacon bits or sliced green onions.

Fried Deviled Eggs
Fried deviled eggs are a delightful twist on the classic recipe, with a crispy coating and tangy yolk filling!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Egg Yolk Mixture
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper to taste
- ½ cup flour
- ¼ cup seasoned bread crumbs
- ¼ cup panko
- cooking spray
- smoked paprika for garnish, optional
Place 6 eggs in the air fryer basket (reserve 2 eggs for coating the whites). Turn the air fryer on to 250°F and cook the eggs for 16 to 17 minutes or until hard boiled. Transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water for 5 minutes.
Gently peel cooled hard-boiled eggs and slice in half lengthwise.
For the Filling
Gently remove the yolks and place them in a medium bowl, reserving the egg whites.
Use a fork to mash the egg yolks with mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper until smooth. Set aside.
To Prepare the Eggs
Preheat the air fryer to 400℉.
In a small bowl whisk the 2 remaining eggs. In a separate bowl combine the panko and seasoned bread crumbs. Put the flour in a third shallow bowl.
Dip the egg whites in flour, followed by the egg wash, and then the bread crumbs mixture gently pressing to adhere. Repeat with the remaining egg whites.
Spray the crumbs with cooking spray, and then carefully place egg whites into the air fryer basket.
Air fry for 2-3 minutes per side until browned and crispy.
Fill each fried egg white with the yolk mixture using a spoon or a piping bag. Serve immediately.
To Boil Eggs in Water: Place 6 eggs in a saucepan and cover with water at least ½″ above the eggs. Bring water to a rolling boil over high heat. Cover and remove from heat. Let stand covered for 15-17 minutes (for large eggs). Remove from hot water and place in a bowl of ice water.
To Deep Fry the Egg Whites
- Heat 3″ of cooking oil in a medium-size pan over medium heat.
- Carefully place breaded egg whites into the hot oil. Fry for 2-3 minutes, flipping halfway through. Remove from pan and drain excess oil on a paper towel.
- Fill each fried egg white with the yolk mixture using a spoon or a piping bag. Serve immediately.
