  • Cooking spray
  • Optional: ¼ pound cooked and crumbled breakfast sausage
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, or a blend)
  • ¼ cup chopped vegetables (such as red bell pepper, green onion, mushrooms, tomatoes)
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Air Fryer
  • Nonstick 6-inch cake pan (or similar oven-safe dish that fits your air fryer)
  • Parchment paper (optional)


1. Preheat your air fryer to 360°F (180°C).

2. Prepare your pan. If using a cake pan, spray it lightly with cooking spray. Alternatively, you can line a round cake pan liner or a square piece of parchment paper in your air fryer basket for easier removal.

3. Assemble the frittata. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, salt, and pepper. Then, add your chosen ingredients: cooked sausage (if using), cheese, vegetables, and cayenne pepper (for a kick). Fold everything together gently.

4. Pour the egg mixture into your prepared pan.

5. Air fry the frittata. Cook for 18-20 minutes, or until the frittata is set and golden brown on top. You can check for doneness by inserting a toothpick in the center; it should come out clean.

6. Let cool slightly before serving. Slice and enjoy your delicious Air Fryer Frittata!


  • Feel free to experiment with different fillings! Some other ideas include chopped ham, cooked bacon, spinach, or roasted potatoes.
  • If your air fryer has a smaller basket, you may need to adjust the cooking time or cook the frittata in batches.
  • For a cheesier frittata, sprinkle some extra cheese on top before the last few minutes of cooking.
  • Serve your Air Fryer Frittata with a side of toast, salsa, or sour cream.
