Air Fryer Appetizer Recipes
If you don’t have an Air Fryer just yet, now is the time to take the leap! Some recipes you can make in the oven for a baked version, but they are rarely as good as when cooked in the Air Fryer. I own a Phillips XXL Airfryer and absolutely love it. It has a basket size about twice that of the smaller ones and is great for making recipes.
I used to own a smaller Air Fryer and it was great for throwing some frozen chicken strips in for a quick lunch, but it was definitely limited in making a larger batch of appetizers. If you are just starting out with an Air Fryer, I highly recommend you take the leap with an XL version.
Air Fryers have special ability to circulates air at a more rapid speed and higher temperature. This helps food crisp up quicker than an oven. It is obviously a much healthier alternative to fried foods, which get crispy quickly, but are full of grease.
