Does your kitchen have a new air fryer? Are you excited…but not quite sure what to do with it? That’s how I felt when I first got my air fryer. Here are a couple of fun ideas for your air fryer to get you started!
Fun Ideas For Your Air Fryer
Everyone says to start with french fries, and they aren’t wrong! They are so easy to make, and they will help you fall in love with your air fryer. Start by preheating your air fryer 380º F. Cut a potato in half lengthwise, then into 1/4-inch slices. Cut those slices into 1/4-inch sticks. Rinse your potato sticks with cold water and pat them dry. Toss the fries with a teaspoon of olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Put the fries in an even layer in the air fryer basket with no overlapping and cook for 14 minutes. Turn/shake them halfway through. Add a little more salt when you remove them. Depending on how many potatoes you cut, you may need to cook in batches.
Hard Boiled Eggs
We probably need another name for these, because they technically aren’t being boiled at all, but they will taste/look just like they were! Preheat your air fryer to 270º F. Place the eggs inside the basket of the air fryer. If you have a wired rack to keep the eggs in place, you can use one, but if not, just place them far apart and move slowly as you place the basket in your machine. Cook them for 15 minutes and then immediately move them into a bowl of ice water for five minutes. That’s it!
