Cooking with An Air Fryer

Cooking with an Air Fryer has been a great addition to our kitchen repertoire. This appliance is easy enough to use that you can teach your kids to cook with it. It is a healthier and quick way to prepare meals and snacks. You can also warm up frozen foods such as chicken or mini pizzas. Our favorite so far is cooking frozen sweet potato fries in the air fryer.

Why an Air Fryer?

Not only is using an air fryer healthier it is easy to clean up after. If you have ever used a deep fryer you'll find the air fryer 1000% easier to cook with and clean up after. No large amounts of oil, no waiting for the hot oil to cool down and pouring the cooled oil in a container. Then scrubbing the deep fryer and kitchen cabinets when done from all the splattered grease. The main difference in an air fryer versus a deep fryer is the air is frying your food instead of oil. This makes for fewer calories and more healthy options.

Air Fryer Recipes

Here are a few recipes to try in an air fryer.

Fried Broccoli

Air frying broccoli makes it crispy on the outside. Preheat your air fryer for several minutes. Prep your broccoli florets by washing and soaking in water, drain and towel dry. You want to get rid of any excess water. You can spin them in a lettuce spinner if you have one. Season the broccoli with salt and pepper, garlic and/or Italian seasoning. Place in an air fryer. Cook broccoli for about 10 minutes.

Mozzarella Sticks

Mozzarella sticks are a kid favorite so how about trying them air fried. To prep cut mozzarella cheese sticks in half. Beat an egg in a small bowl and dip cheese sticks in the egg to coat. Now roll sticks in a small bowl of grated Parmesan. Roll around to coat. Repeat with dipping in egg again and then in Parmesan. Place in an air fryer and bake for 5 minutes.
