3 Air Fryer recipes for a Lazy College Student

If you’re a college student, a stay at home mom, just a really lazy person then you should definitely consider purchasing an air fryer.   Air fryers are magical machines that fry food in minutes. French fries, burgers, steak, and chicken wings fried to perfection in minutes. The best part, you don’t have to worry about using fattening, messy, grease. Air fryers are said to cook food using heated air that circulating inside of a chamber; this produces a reaction known as the “mailliard reaction.”  A chemical reaction responsible for perfectly browned foods like biscuits, pan seared steaks, and cookies.


If that wasn't convincing enough, here are a few beginner air fryer recipes that’ll have you heading to the Walmart today.
