16 Tasty Ways To Use That Airfryer You Just Got

Make use of your shiny new kitchen toy.

Charlotte Gomez / BuzzFeed

Maybe you were gifted an air fryer for Christmas, or maybe you went and treated yourself to one. Whatever the case, you're probably looking for some recipes to try out on your new kitchen toy.

An air fryer is great because it lets you replicate the crunchy texture of fried foods without using a vat of oil. Not that you should be scared of fat — in fact, a high-fat, low-carb diet is the main point of the keto diet, arguably the most popular diet in the last few years. But if, for whatever reason, you're trying to consume less fat or enjoy the texture of lots of fried goods without all the calories, an air fryer is your best friend. From crispy avocado fries and parmesan pickle chips, to a ham, bell pepper, and mushroom omelette and Greek chicken souvlaki, here are all the tasty air fryer recipes you should try!
