I know making an omelet is probably faster to make on a stovetop in a nonstick skillet. But, what if I told you, you could make an omelette in your air fryer just by adding some parchment paper at the bottom of your basket? Easy clean up and no dirty pans.
I’ve been seeing people make air fryer omelettes or frittatas on Tiktok lately so I thought I’d give it a try. I like how the top part of the omelette comes out a little crispy. My omelette was thin enough that you could put it between two slices of bread and make a sandwich with it. Have you been following me on Tiktok lately? Check out my latest recipe videos there.
