If you’ve been anywhere lately you’ve probably heard someone raving about their newest kitchen appliance obsession: The Air Fryer.
Or maybe you saw a commercial for one. Or you saw a great deal at your favorite wholesale club or Walmart.
I’m here to tell you- it’s worth it!
So what is an Air Fryer?
It’s an appliance you, too, will be obsessed with in no time. My top 3 reasons for loving it are:
- It makes everything super crispy
- You use very little oil
- It cooks SO FAST! It preheats in just minutes and cooks most things about half the time!
Which one should I buy?
There are so many choices of Air Fryers out there, it can be confusing. If you are on the fence about getting an Air Fryer, read Which Air Fryer Should You Buy? | Which Air Fryer is Right for You? for some pointers.
Not only are there a ton of makes and models of Air Fryers, but now there are also combination appliances with tons of functions- the Ninja Foodi, the Mealthy Crisp Lid, or the very new IP air fryer lid which also turns your Instant Pot into an Air Fryer.
What can I make in an Air Fryer?
Seriously, anything from breakfast to meat to veggies. I have new Air Fryer recipes coming out all the time, but we have made eggs, bacon, french toast sticks, steak, crabcakes, chicken, shrimp, potatoes, salmon, taquitos, veggies, even FROZEN veggies in the Airfryer. And everything has come out perfect!
So, I’ve rounded up my favorite Air Fryer recipes from Confessions, as well as some other amazing bloggers, all in one place to share with you. There are Breakfasts, Sides/Snacks, and Main Courses to try. Let me know which ones end up being your favorites!
