Are you looking for a delicious and speedy breakfast, brunch, or lunch option? Look no further than Air Fryer Ham Steak (or Gammon Steak)! In just under 10 minutes, you can enjoy a slice of pure nostalgia. Picture this – juicy ham steak served with pineapple rings, eggs, and fries. It’s the perfect combination of flavors that will transport you back to those carefree days.
But, before we dive into this mouthwatering recipe, let me tell you how I first stumbled upon this delightful dish. It was during my college days when I lived in a dorm with included meals. The concept of ham and pineapple paired with eggs and chips was quite perplexing to me at first. However, I quickly fell in love with this simple yet satisfying meal. Gammon steaks, which are relatively inexpensive, proved to be the star of the show when cooked in the Air Fryer!
If you’re in the mood for a ham dinner but don’t want to cook a whole ham, this recipe is the perfect solution. Whether it’s a lazy weekend brunch or a quick lunch on a busy day, Air Fryer Ham Steak has got you covered. After all, ham is not just reserved for the Christmas season!
Let’s talk about the grocery list. To make this recipe, you’ll need some gammon steaks (which are uncooked ham steaks), honey, mustard, olive oil for the glaze, and optional pineapple rings and eggs. Adjusting the cooking time slightly may be necessary depending on the brand of your Air Fryer, so keep that in mind. An instant-read thermometer will come in handy for determining the optimum cooking time.
Now, let’s get down to business and learn how to make Air Fryer Ham Steak. Before we start, make sure to check out the printable recipe card at the bottom of the page for full measurements and instructions.
To begin, prepare a sweet glaze by mixing olive oil, mustard, and honey. Pat dry the ham steaks (or gammon steaks) with paper towels and brush them with the glaze on both sides. If you’re planning to cook pineapple rings, brush them with the glaze as well.
Next, preheat your Air Fryer for 3 minutes at 375°F (190°C). Place the steaks and pineapple rings in the Air Fryer basket and cook them for 4-5 minutes for gammon steaks and 3-4 minutes for ham steaks. Once done, flip the steaks and pineapple over and brush them with the glaze once more. If you want to add eggs to your meal, mist two silicone molds or mini pie tins with cooking spray and place them on top of the ham in the Air Fryer. Cook the eggs until the whites are set and the yolks are still slightly runny.
Continue cooking for another 4-5 minutes until the gammon steaks reach an internal temperature of 145°F/63°C or 3-4 minutes for pre-cooked ham steaks at 140°F/60°C.
Finally, it’s time to savor your creation! Serve the Air Fryer Ham Steak with fried eggs, pineapple, and chips (which you can also cook in the Air Fryer). Trust me, the combination is absolutely divine!
Here are a few recipe tips to ensure a successful outcome:
- Use an instant-read thermometer to check the temperature in the center of the steaks for the best results. The thickness of the steaks and your Air Fryer model will affect the cooking time.
- If you’re feeling adventurous, serve these ham steaks with a side of Air Fryer Mac and Cheese. It’s a match made in culinary heaven!
