How to make air fryer Creme Eggs

Instagram and TikTok star Nathan Anthony - aka Bored of Lunch - has shared this delicious air fryer Creme Egg recipe just in time for Easter. Nathan is the genius behind a huge range of air fryer and slow cooker recipes that he shares on his social media pages, and he's also the author of Bored of Lunch: The Healthy Air Fryer Book.

Creme egg lovers were quick to share their excitement when Nathan posted the new recipe, with one user writing, "Just made these this morning they are insane 😍😍😍". Here's how you can try it for yourself...


  • 1 pack Jus-Rol Croissants Dough
  • 1 pack Cadbury Creme Eggs
  • 1 egg


  1. Whisk one egg to make your egg wash.
  2. Open your pack of Jus-Rol Croissant Dough and cut along the perforated lines.
  3. Roll one Creme Egg inside each triangle of croissant dough so that the egg is fully covered.
  4. Brush the tops of each croissant ball with the egg wash.
  5. Place the balls into your air fryer and cook for 8 minutes at 170°.
  6. Once the dough has a golden brown colour on the top, they're ready to serve.


Any air fryer you use will achieve the same results, but our Food Editor, Jessica Dady, recommends one of the best air fryers for families, the Breville Halo, which she recently put to the test:

Breville Halo VDF126 5.5L Air Fryer - RRP £119.99 | Amazon

Breville Halo VDF126 5.5L Air Fryer - RRP £119.99 | Amazon

Perfect for large families, this 5.5L air fryer can cook pretty much anything - from fries to a whole roast chicken - and has five different functions for air frying, baking, roasting, sautéing and grilling. 

Jess said: "I've not used an air fryer before so having the digital panel alongside the nifty air fryer oven cooking chart (in the guide booklet) made choosing the correct setting, super easy. The time and temperature digits alternate on the display panel during the cooking process so you can check the temperature is as it should be and you can take a note of the time remaining too."
