Air Fryers are a fantastic way to get that deep-fried taste and texture without all the unwanted oil. A healthier way to cook up your favorite recipes.
I have quite a few air fryer recipes you might want to serve up for your family and friends. I will share popular air fryer recipes to make and enjoy!
What Is An Air Fryer
An air fryer is like a small convection oven that circulates hot air around your food cooking it in all directions. This will give your food that crispy texture like it was deep fried in oil. A lot of times all you need is a simple spritz of oil to prevent food from sticking to the wire basket or trays.
What Can You Make In An Air Fryer
You can pretty much make anything in an air fryer. From crispy chicken tenders, onions rings, home fries, donuts, chicken sandwiches, and even desserts. You will find that the possibilities are pretty much endless when it comes to the air fryer.
Do You Put Oil In An Air Fryer
No, you will not pour oil into your air fryer. You might have to spray cooking spray on racks or even the outside of your food. But other than that, you will not use a lot of oil like you would a deep fryer.
This is a healthier alternative that allows you to enjoy crispy and flavorful foods without excess oil.
Do Air Fryers Use A Lot of Energy
Air fryers are energy efficient and you will find most models and makes will use less energy than say your oven would. They are a really handy kitchen appliance to have on hand.
Another perk of having an air fryer is you can cook up dinner without heating the whole house up, like you would if you turned on your oven! I find in the hotter months of the year I use my air fryer a lot more.
If you are on the fence about getting an air fryer, I highly recommend it. I have found I can cook pretty much anything in it, with ease, and the food tastes amazing. Give it a try and let me know your favorite recipes you have tried.
