The hype is worth it! I’m LOVING my air fryer. There’s a lot of air fryer recipes out there and I wanted to gather some of the best to share with you!
You might have seen me post about my new love on Instagram. I’ve shared it a few times in my stories – the recipes I’ve made and why I love it so. And hopefully you’ve seen my cheat sheet for air fryers too.
As a quick recap – an air fryer is kitchen appliance that sits on your countertop. You use it to quickly cook things and “fry” them without all of the fat. I love that I can make things super fast and without effort. I throw in some asparagus for 4 minutes and voila – perfect! I can toss in the 2 ingredient dough bagels and they are cooked to perfection. Without all of the extra fat that a typical fryer would give me. It’s a healthier option and it’s working so well with my new Weight Watchers journey.
Lots of people have asked if it’s worth it to get one. Here’s the thing – if you won’t use it or don’t have the space or money.. probably not for you. Don’t get it just because everyone else is (said in the nicest way possible). BUT if you think you’ll use it and have the space and money, I can’t recommend it enough.
