Air Fryers have been gaining popularity because of their health benefits. Cooking in air fryers today are so much healthier and quicker too.
When you invest in an air fryer, you’ll see less fat in your foods and how well they taste because of oil that you really don’t have to use in them.
Your family can enjoy the super-heated air fryer while cooking healthier for all of the members of your family or friends. It’s one of the amazing way you’ll be able to fry your foods.
There’s little oil and less fat! This means there’s at least 80% less calories!
How healthy they are
The healthy element about using an Air Fryer is that the cooks use less oil. The Nuway Air Fryer, the Phillips Air Fryer, or the T-Fal Actifry, swirls the food in hot air in order to have that crisp taste and look. The hot air is what makes the golden crisp look and flavor. The oven-baked and convection-fried fries use less oil than the deep fried french fries. This is why they are healthier to use to fry and cook, because less oil, less calories, simple as that!
Various Air Fryer recipes
Try these with your next Delux Hamburger with cheese and all the “fixings” or you can eat them alone with your favorite dip sauce. They’re easy to make and after prep work (which is just cutting them, or slicing them into chunky wedges), your Air Fryer will do all the work!
Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets
Before you mix, turn on your Air Fryer on Mix in a large bowl the following ingredients.
– 1 lb. of chicken cuts (cut into 1″ chunks)
– 1 egg
– 1 c. Milk
– 1 c. flour
– 2 tspn. onion powder
– 1 c. panko
– 2 tspn. salt
– 1 tspn. pepper
– 1 tbsn. papika
Put the ingredients in a small mixing bowl except the egg and milk which will be in another bowl so as to batter the nuggets before dipping them in the panko bread or crumbs.
The paprika, flour, onion powder, salt, and pepper should be added to the panko, then set aside after mixing it.
Dip the chicken into a mix of egg and milk. Place on plate or platter and let stand in fridge for an hour. Take them out afterwards and roll them into the panko mix you set aside.
Place them in the Air Fryer Basket and make sure you have your Air Fryer at 370 degrees. You can put the timer at approximately 4 to 5 minutes.
When time rings, turn the chicken nuggets and repeat. You can spray your nuggets with a cooking spray before placing them in the Air Fryer. Make sure you have them all spread out evenly. (Source: Laurie. Forktospoon.com/Sept. 3, 2017)
Air Fried Hamburger Patties
These are the ingredients to make one hamburger patty! Plus, you don’t need any oil. This is why it’s so healthy to cook, but also because of the amount of fat your patty may have in it. In fact, the thickness of the patty will determine this. When you compact the patty the cooking time will also be determined.
If it’s slightly thicker than an 1 inch, then naturally it will be about 15 minutes to cook well done.
– 11 in. thick, hamburger patty
– 1 Hamburger bun
– 3 lettuce leaves, optional
– 2 tbsp tomato sauce (optional)
– 1 slice cheese optional
– 2 slices tomato (optional)
The air fryer must be preheated at 180 °C or 360 ° F which is usually around 3 minutes. Then, put the defrosted meat patty in the air fryer and cook 15 minutes.
Air Fried French Fries
– 1 – 1 1/2 lbs. fingerling cut potatoes
– 1 tbsp. olive oil (or 1 spray olive oil or regular)
– Salt and pepper (for your taste buds)
To get these fries going, and after you’ve turned on your Air Fryer, put it on broil and put your fries in.
Broil them for about 10 to 12 minutes to “get them going” as recommended on the Rachel Ray show.
Cool them off after putting them in a glass bowl.
Toss them in the basket into the air fryer. For about 15 minutes, pull them out and let them cool a bit and you’re set! Air Fried French Fries ready to eat with your favorite dip sauce.
