Deep Fried Deviled Eggs (Air Fryer Version)

Deep Fried Deviled Eggs (Easy, Air Fryer Version!)

On a trip to Atlanta, I had Deep Fried Deviled Eggs topped with bacon and hot sauce. I immediately thought - I can make these but I'm going to make them in my air fryer! Air Fried "Deep Fried" Deviled eggs are healthier even better than the originals!

  • Place 6 eggs in air fryer and air fry at 250 for 17 minutes
  • While eggs are cooking, dice bacon and fry on stovetop.
  • Place in bowl with cold water and let rest
  • Crack egg shells and peel. Rinse eggs with water – shake dry (do not dry with paper towel)
  • Slice the eggs in half lengthwise, removing yolks to a medium bowl, and placing the whites on a plate.
  • Set up a dipping station with 2 plates and a bowl:
    Tray 1: Hooters wing breading
    Tray 2: 2 beaten eggs mixed with hot sauce
    Tray 3: panko breading
  • Heavily coat egg halves in wing breading
  • Dip egg halves into egg mixture – be sure to get the center of the egg where the yolk was
  • Move eggs to the panko and coat – pushing panko onto all sides of egg halves
  • Move breaded egg white halves to air fryer and spray with olive oil cooking spray.
  • Air fry at 350 for 4 minutes, flip egg halves, spray again, air fry for 4 minutes more. Egg halves will be golden. (you may need to do in batches depending on size of air fryer)
  • While whites are air frying, mash the yolks into a fine crumble using a fork. Add mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper and chili powder and mix well.
  • Place into a ziplock quart bag and place in refrigerator
  • Once all eggs are done in air fryer – place on serving platter and let cool for 5 minutes.
  • Cut corner of ziploc bag to make it a piping bag and pipe egg yolk mixture into air fried egg whites
  • Top with diced bacon, cilantro and a couple drops of hot sauce on each egg


– Feel free to swap out regular flour for the Hooters Wing Breading
– You can hard boil your eggs however you like – but the Air Fryer way is amazing!
