20 Easy Air Fryer Recipes for Beginners

Whether you’re craving a quick, delicious weekend breakfast or need to get dinner on the table quickly, your air fryer will become your new best friend.

Air fryers have become very popular in recent years, and for a good reason. They cook your food quicker than a regular oven, are easier to clean, and are much healthier than deep frying or pan frying.

In addition, the circulating hot air ensures food is cooked perfectly inside, with just the right crisp on the outside. All in all, it’s a great tool for everyday family cooking.

Baked potatoes are a delicious side for so many dishes, and with the air fryer, you get just the right balance of crispy skin and soft, fluffy inside. No pre-cooking is needed; just bake them in your air fryer for 35-40 minutes.
