Air Fryer Recipes
The air fryer recipes are some of the most popular recipes on this website. It seems that I’m not the only one who is obsessed with this method of cooking! If you love fried foods but not all of the added oils needed to cook them, an air fryer can help.
Having an air fryer is like having a mini convection oven on your countertop. It uses a fan to circulate hot air around your food, cooking it quickly. It’s important when air frying not to crowd the fryer’s racks or basket; this can impede air flow.
Air fryers do a spectacular job of crisping up the outer surfaces of foods thanks to the rapid air movement. The outsides also dry out a bit as they crisp. Keep this attribute in mind and use it to your advantage when air frying.
If you have a larger family, you will probably want to purchase a large-capacity air fryer. I have a 10-Quart Kalorik Digital Air Fryer Oven (affiliate link). It is large, reasonably priced, and receives excellent ratings.
I would recommend it. However, even with its large capacity, it’s only able to cook about 1-1.5 pounds of frozen veggies at a time. In other words, I do still need the oven or stovetop to prepare other parts of family meals.
A nice feature of my air fryer is that it comes with a spit that I can use to cook a whole chicken. (You can get my recipe for air fryer rotisserie chicken by clicking here.) If you want to try this, make sure your air fryer comes with this feature.
Are you ready to try your hand at air frying? Here are some air fryer recipes I've recently made in my kitchen:
