Air Fryer Egg Bites are creamy and fluffy made with cottage cheese, crumbled bacon, Swiss cheese and green onion. They’re perfect for meal prepping and breakfast-on-the-go!


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup 2% cottage cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup cooked, crumbled bacon
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion


  1. Add the eggs, cottage cheese, salt and pepper to a blender. Blend on high for 20 seconds or until smooth.
  2. Divide the bacon, green onion and cheese into 8 standard size silicone muffin cups.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into the cups, filling 3/4 full.
  4. Carefully transfer the filled muffin cups to the air fryer basket.
  5. Air fry on 280F for 13-15 minutes or until the eggs are set.
  6. Remove the basket from the air fryer and let the egg bites cool just enough to handle.
  7. Carefully transfer to a plate and remove the egg bites from the silicone cups.
  8. Serve with your choice of sides or store in the fridge or freezer for later.


  1. You can whisk the eggs and cottage cheese together, but for the creamiest and smoothest texture, I like to blend them together.
  2. Be careful not to over fill the muffin cups. The eggs will expand and puff up as they air fry, so just fill them to a maximum of 3/4 full.
  3. Don’t overcook the egg bites in the air fryer as they will get tough and rubbery.
  4. This recipe was made in a 5.8 quart air fryer basket. If you have a smaller air fryer, you can half the recipe or air fry the egg bites in two batches.
  5. Air fryers differ so you may need to adjust the temperature and air frying time slightly for your brand or model. 
  6. Be sure to check out the other sections above the recipe card for more detailed advice and suggestions for making this recipe.
