We don’t use our air fryer often but every now and again it’s fun to try a new recipe.  This time we tried an Air Fryer Blooming Onion.  A blooming onion is essentially a large onion that is sliced to resemble a flower, battered, deep fried, and served as an appetizer.  My recipe removes the deep-frying step and has you air fry it instead. The batter creates this lovely crust that is crispy, the onion is tender, and the dipping sauce adds a nice tang to each bite. The recipe can be found here. Start by preparing the onion.  Peel the onion and slice off the stem.  Do not remove the base on the other side of the onion – only remove the stem or end of one side.  Otherwise the onion will fall apart!   Turn the onion so the cut side is down.  Cut an inch from the … Continue reading

Air Fryer Vegetable Egg Rolls are incredibly delicious!  They are essentially baked, not fried, creating the perfect crispy and crunchy crust in every bite!  These are made in a fraction of the time and taste just like the Egg Rolls you would get at a restaurant.  Perfect for an appetizer, snack, or side dish! The recipe can be found here. I always start by prepping my ingredients, so they are ready to go when needed.  Slice the red bell pepper and green onions.  Then combine the cabbage slaw, green onion, red bell pepper, flaxseed, soy sauce, and red pepper flakes in a large bowl.  Make sure to mix well.  If you like heat, you can always add additional red pepper flakes. You can play around with the vegetables a bit, if there is something else you would like.  Perhaps you add some chopped mushrooms to the mixture or a few … Continue reading

Air Fryer Chicken Potstickers are super flavorful and surprisingly easy to make!  Plus, they are super versatile because you can fill them with anything you want.  Potstickers cooked the traditional way are amazing, but have you ever considered cooking them in an air fryer?  It’s a great way to get a crispy crust without too much added oil. The recipe can be found here. Start by combining the ground chicken, water chestnuts, green onion, minced onion, soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, and ginger in a bowl.  Stir until well combined or use your hands to combine (this is almost easier to blend everything together). Place 16 potsticker wrappers on the counter.  You can also use wonton wrappers if you don’t have potsticker wrappers, they will work just the same.  Add a scoop of the chicken mixture to the center of each potsticker.  You should have enough to add a small … Continue reading

We recently purchased an air fryer to see what the hype is all about – it’s pretty awesome!  Our first meal consisted of Air Fryer Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings and Air Fryer Homemade French Fries. Both the chicken wings and french fries were crispy on the outside and tender on the side.  Plus, they are so easy to make! You’d never guess you could have delicious chicken wings and french fries for a fraction of the oil traditionally used to cook these items.  That’s because air fryers require less oil than when frying food, making it a great appliance to use to cut calories and fat.  Generally speaking, air fryers product healthier alternatives to fried food.  Give it a try! Air Fryer Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings have great flavor in each bite!  The lemon flavor really stands out without being overpowering and the skin becomes crispy, creating a nice crunch.  … Continue reading
