Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts

Rating: 4.52 stars
29
Sweet and tart balsamic vinegar pairs well with the bitterness of Brussels sprouts; the bacon adds a smokey flavor. After 10 minutes, there's still some bite to the sprouts; add a few more minutes for a softer texture, if desired.

Coconut shrimp come out great in the air fryer, and are served with a simple spicy honey-lime dip.

Perfectly cooked mustard-crusted pork tenderloin with potatoes and green beans in an air fryer for four.

Air Fryer Bacon-Wrapped Scallops with Sriracha Mayo

Rating: 4.75 stars
4
This delicious appetizer is prepared quickly and easily in the air fryer and served with a spicy Sriracha mayo dipping sauce. I use the smaller bay scallops for this. If you are using jumbo scallops it will require a longer cooking time and longer strips of bacon.

Air Fryer Chicken Thighs

Tasty, quick, chicken thighs, with juicy meat and a crispy skin; you will love this chicken that is ready for the table in less than 30 minutes!

Air Fryer Ranch Pork Chops

Rating: 4.73 stars
30
What could be simpler than ranch seasoning mix and 10 minutes in the air fryer? I prefer my chops slightly pink to ensure juiciness, but feel free to add an extra minute on each side for well done. Try different varieties of ranch mix (like spicy or bacon) to change up the flavor.

Air Fryer Brown Sugar and Pecan Roasted Apples

Rating: 4.63 stars
8
A sweet and nutty topping made with brown sugar and pecans adds incredible flavor to apples as they cook to tender perfection in the air fryer. Serve roasted apples over ice cream or yogurt, if desired.

Basic Air Fryer Hot Dogs

Rating: 4.69 stars
58
Perfectly crisp hot dogs and toasted buns made in minutes with the help of your air fryer. Top with ketchup, mustard, relish, chili, or condiments of choice.

Air Fryer Potato Wedges

Rating: 4.84 stars

Perfectly crisp and seasoned potato wedges straight out of your air fryer. It doesn't get any easier than this!

Air Fryer Meatballs

Rating: 4.9 stars
21
After cooking meatballs in the air fryer, I will never bake them in the oven again. The insides stay nice and tender while the outsides get a slight crisp on them. The best part is that you can make them ahead of time and freeze for later use. I have included those directions in the notes. Dip meatballs in marinara, if desired.
