Air-fryers have made the life of every cook easier. Not only do they use very little oil and deliver the same fantastic taste that a heavily oil-fried dish would deliver, but they are also fuss-free to use and easier to clean up. Air-fryers are a win-win. Here are 6 lip-smacking recipes you have to try on your air-fryer today!
Sweet Potato Tots
Making crispy, crunchy sweet potato tots in an air-fryer, gives it that little edge that commercially bought, frozen ones lack. Your air-fried tots will have a crisp on the outside and a smooth softness on the inside. You can use cooking spray to make sure the potatoes brown evenly. Boil the sweet potatoes in a way that leaves you with subtle softness and texture that can be grated and made into balls with ease. You can use either ketchup or ranch dressing to serve your delicious home-made, air-fried sweet potato tots!
Doughnuts are a huge deal in the US. Can’t blame them, because once you’ve tasted those soft, glazed, little rings, you’ll become an instant fan too! Use your air-fryer to fry the doughnuts when they have risen enough. Use parchment paper to transfer them into the fryer with care. Glaze them up, and get gorging!
Cooking meatballs in an air-fryer is probably the best way it can be used! Think about those soft, moist balls of pure joy that melt in your mouth and are packed with flavor! Perfect the shape of your meatballs by balancing the moisture in them and balling them up with a “claw” hand. Also, don’t apply too much pressure when shaping them. Take them out of the air-fryer, add sauces of your choice, and serve them hot with rice, noodles, or pasta!
Broccoli with Cheese Sauce
A good Air fryer can do a lot of things, including giving broccoli a crispy texture without adding the unappetizing color to it. Spray the broccoli with cooking spray and cook it in halves. Cook them for 6-8 minutes at 375°F. Take them out, spread cheese sauce, and enjoy a tasty veggie meal at the cost of nothing!
Haven’t you ever thought that your air-fryer could also double as a pizza oven? Well, it can, and you can use it to make beautiful small-sized pizzas for when you feel like a snack. Coat marinara sauce on the pita bread and spread your favorite toppings in them like baby tomatoes, spinach leaves, cheese, and garlic. Place the bread in the air-fryer basket and cook it for 4-5 minutes at 350°F. When the cheese melts and the pita turns crisp, take it out and enjoy it!
Drums of Heaven
Restaurants use so much oil to master the tender yet the crispy texture of these heavenly drumsticks! But thanks to your air-fryer, you can recreate the dish with only one tablespoon of sesame oil! Marinate the chicken and coat the pieces with cooking spray. Place a maximum of 10 wings in the air-fryer at one go; cook for 25 minutes at 400°F, until the skin turns crispy. Take them out and enjoy your drums of heaven, that have a sweet and spicy Asian flavor. For added crunch, you can sprinkle sesame seeds on them too!
These recipes are all super-easy to try and take only about 15 to 30 minutes to prepare. Breakfast to dinner, savory to dessert, there’s one food for every mood! Get your air-fryer now, and try any or all of these recipes!
