Now that you’ve jumped on the air fryer train, here are some of the recipes that’ll satisfy all your cravings. You’re welcome.
After last year‘s ube-cheese pandesal phenomenon, it’s the air fryer’s turn to shine. And why shouldn’t it? It’s a handy appliance that takes frozen food to a whole other level, as well as many of our other fave fried goodies.
Air fryers are this millennium’s turbo broiler; they use hot air to cook food, giving it that TDF golden brown color and texture sans deep-frying and all that oil. If all that sounds amazing, wait ’til you see the chocolate chip cookie recipe. Without further ado, here are our favorite things to make in an air fryer:
