In case you haven’t heard, the newest kitchen appliance that has taken the world by storm is the air fryer!
What is an air fryer? It’s a counter-top appliance that is basically a small convection oven. It replaces a deep fryer and is a much healthier option, but in my experience it has other benefits as well!
Pros and cons of an air fryer:
- it cooks crispy food with a fraction of the oil
- it heats up in just a couple of minutes (compared to 10-15 minutes for my oven)
- you don’t need to heat up your oven (great in the summer)
- it has a large footprint (not great for small spaces)
- it does not fit a large amount of food at a time and you often have to cook in batches (although it really depends on your air fryer model and the type of food you’re cooking)
- they can be costly
I’ve owned my air fryer for a year and a half now, and it definitely has found a special place in my heart. It’s my go-to for chicken wings, frozen sweet potato fries, and zucchini fries.
Today I’m sharing these recipes and more in this round-up of 36+ air fryer recipes. We have recipes for air fryer appetizers, sides and main courses.
These are all super easy air fryer recipes! I hope you find some you love!
