Every now and then I check out the frozen food section at my local grocery store to see if they have anything that I have not yet tried to air fry. On one recent trip, I discovered frozen tamales so I bought them to try preparing them in an air fryer.
Every time I go to a ballpark or a fair, I seek out the giant soft pretzels. Pretzels with lots of salt are my thing, and although some like their soft pretzels with mustard and some like them with cheese, we can all agree – soft pretzels rock.
Although the fried bologna sandwich is not everyone’s cup of tea, I have an affinity for it as it was a childhood staple. For a latchkey kid, it was something easy to make right after school to tide you over until dinner. And fried bologna is head and shoulders better than cold bologna. Back then, we only had a skillet to fry the bologna. These days, you can use an air fryer.
Recently, I wondered if we could cook SPAM in the air fryer (yes, the meat in the can). It’s not a regular staple in my diet, but I like it and it does get a bad rap. When I thought about it, of course, you can cook spam in an air fryer. Air fryers are good for anything but soup and cereal.
The Brätwurst sausage has been in existence since the middle ages, from the German city of Nuremberg. Brat (finely ground meat) and wurst (sausage) has some 40 variations, and they all air-fry perfectly. (Okay, we haven’t tried all 40 variations in the air fryer but we have faith!)
We grew squash while growing up because zucchini is one of my mother’s favorites vegetables. She would often stew tomatoes and zucchini together, making it one of the food staples of my childhood. If there was zucchini on the vine, it would be eaten.
I typically buy the huge bag of frozen shredded hash browns when grocery shopping. But recently, I found these Southwest hash brown patties in the frozen food section of my local Kroger and had to give them a try.
With low-carb diets that eliminate gluten on the rise, more and more people are searching for that perfect pasta substitute. While most people opt for “zoodles”, made from cold zucchini, I much prefer the savory-sweet flavor and hot temperature of spaghetti squash. There are various ways to prepare spaghetti squash, from the oven to the slow cooker, but my personal favorite method is in the air fryer. Which begs the question of how to cook spaghetti squash in the air fryer. We’re so glad you asked!
Have you ever wanted to know how to cook a frozen burrito in your air fryer? You should, because toaster ovens cook too slow, and microwaves have a tendency to make the burrito insides ooze all over the place. In just a few minutes you can have the perfect frozen burrito.
I like how our normal waffle fries turned out, so I was excited to try these Alexia sweet potato waffle fries in the air fryer. Sometimes sweet potatoes can burn in the air fryer, but I managed to keep the burning down with a few air frying tricks.
I do admit that I love Dr. Praeger’s foods, so when I saw Dr. Praeger’s Kale Puffs, I had to try and air fry them. Why not?
For almost a decade my wife has been vegan. Because of this, I eat vegan meals more often than not, it is just easier to cook plant-based meals for the meals that we share together. And to be honest, I can’t tell the difference half the time anyway. Especially with Beyond meat.
