Looking for a healthier alternative to deep-frying? Meet the air fryer, your new favorite gadget. Check our best air-fryer recipes for 2023, from breakfast to dinner, dessert and everything in between!
It’s official: Everyone who has an air fryer loves it. The small appliance reaps big rewards, especially when you put it to good use for your favorite recipes. It can make just about anything, from breakfast pastries to french fries, roasted vegetables and even whole chickens. And dessert? Don’t sweat the sweet stuff because you can make amazing cakes, tarts and cookies in an air fryer, too.
While it has some limitations—you can’t bake a sheet cake, for instance, or other really large items (no whole turkeys, please!)—this is our go-to for treats like mozzarella sticks, egg rolls, corn dogs and other air-fryer frozen foods. Just about anything you would deep fry can be air fried, and with a lot less oil and mess (like many of our favorite healthy air-fryer recipes). But an air fryer is capable of so much more.
Create an entire morning spread with air-fryer breakfast recipes, from Danishes to quiche. Lunch is a snap, especially if you’re simply reheating something like fried chicken or pizza. When cooking dinner for the family, think: air-fryer chicken, air-fryer ground beef recipes like meat loaf, seafood like salmon fillets and so much more. Don’t forget air-fryer vegetable recipes and air-fryer sides for a complete meal.
