Air fryer ideas seem to be everywhere these days, and with good reason. Who doesn’t love the crisp, golden goodness of freshly fried foods? With an air fryer in your kitchen, crispy dishes are easy to prepare with less fat and fewer calories that traditional frying. (And cook times are WAY faster than traditional bakes!) This must-have appliance is the perfect way to prep for special events or a simple night in. Here are some of our favorite air fryer ideas sure to take your mealtimes to the next level!

Air Fryer Ideas for the Big Game
From that big February football game, to little league playoffs, crunchy appetizers and crispy main dishes are always a hit among sports fans. Try healthier snack options in the air fryer, such as Parmesan-crusted zucchini and eggplant, or jalapeño poppers bursting with creamy cheese. Go completely homemade, or toss in pre-made frozen nuggets and the like. The air fryer makes everything taste great! Our tailgating blog post features a ton of recipe ideas that can be adapted for your air fryer, and you’ll find everything you need at your Houston grocery!

Air Fryer Dinner Ideas
Staying in for the night? Whether it’s a busy after-school weeknight or a chance to get the whole crew together for a few games, we’ve got a collection of family-friendly recipes that can easily be prepped and popped in the air fryer for a family feast. After all, spending time together doesn’t have to mean spending all night at the stove. Air fryers are a set-it-and-forget-it way to get dinner done without the added stress of traditional deep frying (and all the leftover oil it produces). And kid favorites such as fish and chips or pizza rolls come out oven-crisp without having to heat the oven. Wind up with leftovers? No sweat, neighbor! The air fryer can handle that, too! It’s got an uncanny knack for reheating fries and other faves without making them mushy like the microwave can.

Air Fryer Desserts
Air frying is great for savory foods, but did you know it’s also perfect for after-meal treats? Sweet apple turnovers, empanadas and almost any of the frozen bakery treats in our frozen food section can be browned up in an air fryer for a freshly baked taste that won’t heat up the whole house. Many air fryers have a baking or oven setting, and there are even small bakeware sets that fit inside some air fryers to make mini loafs and cakes. The sky’s the limit, folks!

That’s really just the start of things, neighbor. There’s a whole world of tasty air fryer goodness just waiting to be discovered. (You can start with these incredible recipes!) When it comes to air fryer cooking, whether savory or sweet, you’ll find everything you need at your neighborhood store. And during January and February 2022? You’ll find the air fryer, too!
