Air Fryer Recipes for Every Occasion

Did you get an air fryer for Christmas like half of all college students? Not sure what to cook? Check out some of these delicious recipes below.


1. Blooming Onion

If you’re a fan of Outback’s bloomin onion, now you can make it at home too! With only five minutes of prep time and 15 minutes of cooking, this is the perfect appetizer for the next night you’re entertaining.

2. Fried Raviolis

Unlike your usual raviolis coated in oil, making raviolis in the air fryer offers a healthier alternative. Once you make them as an appetizer, you’ll want them all the time!



1. Chicken Fajitas 

When you’re tired of dealing with the grease from cooking on the stove top, cooking chicken fajitas in an air fryer will change your life. All you have to do is prep the chicken and veggies and leave the rest to the air fryer!

2. Chicken Parmesan

When you cook in the oven, sometimes it can take forever. With this recipe, not only can you cut down the cooking time to 10 minutes, but your chicken will come out crispier and juicier than ever.



1. Cinnamon Apple Fries

These apple fries are perfect for whenever you’re looking for a healthier dessert option. 

2. Fried Oreos 

Fried oreos are the staple food of any fair or carnival. Without the use of oil, it makes your guilty pleasure food a little less guilty. And they come out even better than deep fried oreos too - crunchy on the outside but gooey on the inside!


As someone who just got her first air fryer, I can promise you that it was the best gift I ever received. It makes everything taste so much better and I don’t have to worry about taking too much time away from my online work to cook.
