Air frying Breakfast Frittata
Cover the pan with Aluminum foil and place it in the air fryer basket. Set the temp to 350*F and air fry for 15-20 minutes depending upon when the eggs set perfectly in the center. Remove the foil after 7-8 minutes of air-frying. This will avoid the over browning of the frittata and will keep it moist as well.

How do you if the FRITTATA is done?
Cook the frittata in the oven just until the center is no longer jiggly and the edges are golden-brown. For extra reassurance it's done, you can place a sharp knife into the center of the frittata.
How can I avoid my Frittata to go flat?
Here is a tip - take out the frittata from the air-fryer when the eggs are still a little loose in the center. Let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes to fully set before cutting. The eggs will settle down and firm up as they sit at the room temperature.
How to avoid OVER-BROWNING of the frittata at the top?
Since the air fryer acts a little like a broiler, so it browns the baked dishes quickly even though the center and the bottom is still not cooked.
TIP : I recommend covering the air frying dish with foil for the first half cooking time. And then cook the dish without the foil for the remaining time.

You can easily store it in the refrigerator after cooling it completely at the room temperature. It stays good for about a week.

Yes you can make 4 individual mini frittatas with this recipe. Use oven safe RAMEKINS. Time will vary for individual portions. It will be less, probably 7-8 minutes.
