Actifry Scrambled Eggs & "Skillet" Breakfast Potatoes 

I'm a sucker for breakfast food! These eggs are outstanding. They're fluffy and soft and the potatoes are perfectly crisp on the outside and billowy soft on the inside, without all of the butter and oil normally used to make skillet breakfast potatoes. Making scrambled eggs for a few people is easy enough to do in a traditional skillet, but if you need to cook for a crowd (I'm thinking Christmas Eve breakfast), then the Actifry will make it an easy task! That said, there's no other way to cook these "skillet" breakfast potatoes than by ditching the skillet! Opting for the Actifry is the smart option as the minimal oil used makes these potatoes much healthier than the traditional, oil-soaked method.

If you're like me, you might be a bit dubious about eggs in the air fryer, but it really does work! I prefer my eggs scrambled soft so that they're still runny. It's harder to achieve this with an air fryer, so assume the eggs will come out on the more well-done side of cooked. That said, though, they're not hard and dry like usual well-done eggs! With an Actifry air fryer, you use about a tablespoon of oil for frying. This is all you need:

  1. I had never had potatoes with my breakfast until I moved to America and now I have to have them, exactly how you made them. This is a great simple quick breakfast.

  2. Loving all the flavours and spices going on in this dish, definitely looks delicious and something I would LOVE to eat.
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. That's amazing! Everyone loves fried foods, but they're just so bad for you and
    I hate the greasiness. I would love to try this product, especially if foods taste just as good.
    This could be revolutionary!

  4. So is the general procedure on cooking eggs putting the tbsp of oil in the actifry first, then wait a few minutes before adding the battered eggs mixture?

    How do the eggs react to the constant paddle motion?

    Is the teflon and oil enough to make it not-stick? Should the actifry be sprayed with some non-stick before doing eggs?
