Air Fryer Rueben Fritters

Air Fryer Rueben Fritters are literally an amazing air fryer appetizer or even a tasty lunch. I made these up and my husband couldn’t stop eating. They were pretty fantastic with the crispy outside and savory filling on the inside.

What Is The Breading To Use For Rueben Fritters

I find that Panko bread crumbs are a great option. They toast up to a nice beautiful while also leaving a fantastic crunchy coating on the outside. I am a huge fan of panko. You are more than welcome to use regular bread crumbs if you want.

I know some might want to use crunched up pork rinds but I can’t promise it will work as I have not tried this method of coating.

What Is The Best Cheese To Use For Rueben Fritters

I love the flavor of tangy Swiss cheese next to the tangy Sauerkraut. Now, if you are not a fan of Swiss you could easily swap for provolone, mozzarella or another plain cheese.

We wanted to have the classic flavors in these fritters so I found this recipe worked great.

Can I Fry These Up On The Stove

Yes, you sure can. If you would prefer to deep fry you are more than welcome to. I personally find air frying so easy and you don’t have to mess with a pot of oil. But feel free to fry up in a pot if you would prefer.
