Why We love making appetizers in the air fryer
Here are 7 reasons why we love making appetizers and finger foods in the air frier.
- Zero Wastage- you don't have to dump the oil that you deep fried those crab Rangoons in!
- Cheaper- What could be cheaper than using zero oil? Fine at max spray ⅛th of a teaspoon of oil.
- Crispier- Ever had soggy oil soaked fries? Air fryer will never do that to you!
- Quick - You literally do not even have to preheat it on most days!
- Precise -No heating the oil and sticking a stick in wondering if it's bubbling enough!(isn't that a hack to check if the oil is hot enough to fry? You set the temperature and the air fryer will do it's job!
- Cleaner & Lesser Wash up - Most days I toss the appetizer in the "seasoning" in the same basket as i air fry in. So really, I am only using one "bowl" for the whole thing.
- Small- Yes there are bigger air fryers with trays and what not. And they do look smashing but...This one air fryer that I have had since 10 years fits any and every nook.
Don't worry about hosting parties anymore! With these amazing air fryer appetizer recipes, you'll be able to create a fantastic party menu that will impress your guests and make you feel confident in your hosting skills.
