50 delicious air-fryer recipes

Even before the coronavirus pandemic, global cooking trends were showing an uptick in people cooking at home. Gallup and Cookpad in 2020 published a report showing that through 2019, a growing number of people around the world were cooking at home rather than going out or eating pre-cooked meals.

In the U.S., the swelling popularity of at-home meal prep subscriptions from Blue Apron to Hello Fresh! and the growing prevalence of grocery delivery underscore a renewed interest in prepping meals at home. Then as COVID-19 spread, mandatory restaurant shutdowns and capacity limits drove a dramatic jump in home cooking—not to mention demand for recipes and sales of things like yeast and kitchen appliances.

One of the biggest kitchen-appliance trends is, naturally, the air fryer. Air fryers can make all your favorite fried recipes in a healthier way that locks in nutrition and doesn’t overheat your kitchen (or put you in the line of fire for errant grease splatter). From fried chicken and stuffed mushrooms to French fries and veggie tempura, the sky’s the limit on what can go into this appliance. For inspiration, Stacker compiled a list of 50 delicious air fryer recipes from Allrecipes. Keep reading for a taste of all the things your air fryer can do.
