  • 1 large egg
  • 1 frozen waffle
  • Maple syrup to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons shredded cheese


1. Step

Set the air fryer’s temperature to 350°F (175°C).

2. Step

Using the rim of a cup or glass, make a hole in the center of the frozen waffle that is between two and three inches in diameter. Move the waffle to a square of parchment paper, then set the waffle and the parchment paper, together with the small center waffle, into the preheated air fryer.

3. Step

In the center of the waffle hole, crack the egg; season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook with the cover on for 5 to 6 minutes, or until the egg white has started to firm.

4. Step

Small center waffles should be taken out of the air fryer. When the egg white is all set and the cheese is melted, add some shredded cheese to the egg waffle.

5. Step

Serve the egg waffle right away after placing it on a platter and adding the maple syrup.
