For Christmas, the main thing Kurtis wanted was an air fryer. This went along with his year-long record of eating better so it was the number one item on his list! Fortunately he got one from my parents, and we’ve had the chance to test quite a few items so far. However, most have been frozen, breaded items that we air-fried so they still weren’t that healthy. Today, I’m sharing 20 air fryer recipes to try (some of which we already have)!

Kurtis asked for and received this FrenchMay air fryer. My mom, who is an incredible cook and loves to try new recipes, actually didn’t have one yet, so she has since ordered one for herself as well and loves it. One of our favorite items to air fry is the Green Giant Cauliflower Tots (you can find them in the frozen vegetable section at most grocery stores). I’ve mentioned them in the past and our love for them, but they always took so long to bake (twice what the package said) and were never truly crunchy. They are amazing in the air fryer and get so golden brown and delicious! That’s truly the great benefit of air fryers (if you aren’t familiar with them). They get the crunch and golden color of fried good without the grease and added calories!
Following are 20 air fryer recipes to try. I’ve noted the ones along the way that we’ve already tested!

Air Fryer Turkey Breast via Recipe Diaries. We’ve made this one twice in the last few weeks. It’s not necessarily a recipe, per se, but directions on cooking turkey breasts. We did the same for a pork tenderloin (cooked it slightly less time) and it turned out wonderfully. If you buy the Hormel turkey breasts or pork tenderloins (in the long tube packets), we found that it takes about 25-30 minutes at 370 degrees for them to hit optimal temperature. They basically taste grilled but we don’t have to spend 30 minutes cooking it outside in freezing temps!
Air Fryer Gluten Free Jalapeno Poppers via Vegetarian Momma
Air Fried Kale Chips via Mamashire. This one is next on our list! We love baked kale chips and I have a feeling they’ll be even better in an air fryer (and won’t burn as easily)!
