As a food blogger, it's literally my job to stay up on all of the new kitchen gadgets! But, I don't buy them all. A girl only has so much cabinet space, you know?
After a few months of reading one rave review after another, I finally caved and bought an air fryer. I love crispy, salty food, and the air fryer gives me just that, without deep fat frying!
Air fryers are cool because they give you those crispy foods you love at a fraction of the calories and fat. Instead of deep fat frying, the Air Fryer circulates hot air around the food, crisping it to perfection.
When Amazon delivered my air fryer, I was so excited to test it out. I did the basics in it; fries, sweet potato fries, chicken fingers for my son. I was impressed! Everything was super crispy. Definitely better than baking. But as the months rolled on, I got more adventurous!
Some of my favorite easy air fryer recipes are included below, from Eggplant Parmesan and Buffalo Chicken Taquitos to Tandoori Chicken. Happy cooking, and keep it crispy!
