It’s the holiday season and I know lots of home cooks are going to be getting Air Fryers…either through those amazing holiday deals, or as gifts. These Air Fryer Recipes are going to show you how easy this little appliance is to use!
EASY AIR FRYER RECIPES
First up on our list is air fryer bacon. This is really one of the easiest recipes because all you need to do is put the bacon in the air fryer in a single layer. I like to use wright brand thick cut bacon and I cut it in half so it will fit in the air fryer. The air fryer I use is 5.7 quarts so that will hold about 5 pieces of bacon cut in half. If your air fryer is smaller, it would not hold as much.

I set the temperature of the air fryer to 350F and I set the time to 9 minutes. If you use thinner bacon, check it after 5 minutes and then every minute after that because it will cook fast!
A quick tip on cooking bacon in the air fryer. If you want to cook more than one batch, make sure you drain the grease after each cook time. It will start to smoke if you don’t.
Next on my list of air fryer recipes is chicken wings. I will never cook chicken wings any other way again! They come out perfectly and so crispy!
I always spray my air fryer with cooking spray when I make chicken wings because they are prone to sticking. I lay them in a single layer (I can usually fit around 10-12 chicken wings) and I pat them dry with paper towels. Then I season with salt and pepper.
Now we just cook them at 380F for 25 minutes. I like to open the air fryer basket every 5 minutes or so and shake them so they cook evenly (I demonstrate this technique in the video below).
After the 25 minutes are up, I increase the temperature to 400F and cook for 3-5 minutes more.
Now lets talk about a great air fryer recipe…Brussels sprouts! These things get so crispy and delicious in the air fryer! In my blog post for Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts, I give instructions for fresh sprouts, but in this post and in the video below, I use frozen sprouts. You should be shocked!
The frozen Brussels sprouts were so much easier! All I did was dump a bag of whole frozen sprouts into the air fryer and cooked them at 400F for 10 minutes.
