A delightful, well-balanced lunch that is full of protein, vegetables, and cheese is an air fryer frittata. This traditional Italian breakfast meal has a reduced calorie count thanks to air-frying, which provides the food golden crisp edges without adding additional fat or oil.


  1. Four big eggs.
  2. Two tablespoons of heavy cream, milk, or cream
  3. Two tablespoons of chopped beef or chicken
  4. Two tablespoons of fresh tomatoes, diced.
  5. Two tablespoons of sautéed onions and mushrooms.
  6. Two tablespoons of freshly chopped, coarsely chopped spinach.
  7. ½ cup cheese. I used both shredded cheddar and shredded mozzarella.
  8. cooking mist. before filling the baking dish with the frittata, spray it.
  9. Add pepper and salt to taste.
  10. Seasoning of choice, a pinch of.
  11. ½ teaspoon garlic powder.




  1. Set the air fryer’s temperature to 400°F (200°C). Recall that the majority of air fryers just require a few minutes to heat up.
  2. After breaking the eggs into a bowl, taste and add salt and pepper to the mixture. Pour in a little milk or cream.
  3. Next, add your desired toppings, such cheese,beef, diced tomatoes, sautéed onions and mushrooms, herbs, and seasonings.
  4. Whisk the mixture until fully combined and pour it into an oven safe dish. I use a 9-inch baking pan, lined with parchment paper.
  5. Cook for 6-7 minutes for a perfectly cooked fluffy frittata, until it is cooked through. 7-8 minutes until the frittata is firmer (medium) and 8-10 minutes for a well-done frittata. Be careful not to overcook Frittata. Monitor your beautiful creation ensuring it is cooked through but still remains moist and delicious!
  6. Once removed from the air fryer, let frittata sit for 2 minutes before slicing and serving.
  7. Serve with a piece of toast, if desired.


  • When is a frittata cooked in an air fryer?
  • Once the frittata reaches the desired level of doneness, it should have a glossy top with some golden brown spots.
  • Place a toothpick in the dish’s middle. When the toothpick inserted into the frittata comes out clean, it’s done! When your frittata is done, you should be able to tell by checking for a clean toothpick, however you should still keep an eye on it because air fryers have a broad temperature range.
  • Set a timer according to the instructions outlined in this recipe card.
  • Experiment one frittata at a time until you find your perfect time and temp.



You can use any oven-safe baking dish you have. As long as it fits in your air fryer. Aim for approx ¼ inch thick frittata once you pour the ingredients into your pan. It will rise up as it cooks. If you have a smaller pan and thicker frittata, you may have to cook longer to insure it cooks through.
