5 Unexpected Ways to Use Your Air Fryer

Gimme some SMORE

I hate when things take up space on my counter. So much so that I don't even own a toaster or a toaster oven. However, I own a gigantic air fryer - and I leave it on my counter because it is HANDS DOWN my favorite kitchen appliance. Even over my coffee maker. That is saying a lot. 

These are some of my favorite ways to use my air fryer - that maybe you haven't tried yet!

1. Reheating Pizza

Does anyone else hate reheating pizza in the microwave? It just so soggy and ... limp. I used to swear by heating up my pizza in my oven. But then, I tried it in my air fryer and all bets were off. It is amazing - and easy and quick. 

~375 for 5-10 minutes

2. Hard Boiled Eggs

This one is perhaps the most mind blowing.  No more waiting for the water to boil! Hard boiled eggs that are easy to peel! Enough said. 

~6 eggs at 270 for 15 minutes, when cook time is up immediately place in a bowl of ice water to cool. When eggs are cool, remove shells and enjoy!

3. Toasted Ravioli

This has become a staple for lunches - at home or to go. Simply spray the refrigerated ravioli with some oil, set your air fryer, and watch closely so they don't burn (this can happen quickly)! Enjoy a delicious side or appetizer. 

~375 for 5-10 minutes, WATCH CLOSELY!

4. Chicken Parmesan 

I use this recipe from Skinnytaste, and then add some mozzarella and parmesan on top the last couple minutes of cooking. Then, I cover in my favorite sauce, and enjoy!

5. Indoor Smores!

This one is so much fun and my boys love watching through the glass window on our air fryer. Gather the usual ingredients, and get ready for a quick and fun snack! 

~Place the graham cracker on the bottom of the air fryer, and place a marshmallow on top. Set the air fryer to 390 and cook for 5 minutes until the marshmallows are browned. Top with chocolate and one more graham cracker. YUM!
