I am a big lover of my air fryer. It helps me to make the crispiest air fryer roast potatoes and air fryer fries but also I use it for so much more than that! I’m sharing some of my favourite UK air fryer recipes – all tried and tested by me so you can be sure they are absolutely delicious.

What can you cook in an air fryer?

One of the best things about using the air fryer is the amount of time that it saves. I love being able to heat up preprepared food in a rush for my daughters dinner, as well as cooking delicious crispy food from scratch.

Katykicker‘s UK air fryer recipes:

Airfryer wedges

Air fryer potato wedges

Air fryer potato wedges are so simple. These are much less time consuming than air fryer chips or fries. I love how quick and easy it is to slice the potatoes into wedges, cover them with a little spray of oil and my favourite herbs and seasonings and then cook. These wedges go great with a variety of dinners and I love the simplicity of them too. The crispy outside and fluffy soft inside work really well together.

Airfryer parsnips

Airfryer parsnips

Air fryer parsnips are the perfect side dish to accompany an easy roast dinner. These are crispy, yet soft and fluffy and perfect with a nice glug of onion gravy.

I love being able to prep these in just a couple of minutes and shake them up during cooking. These can be prepped in advance of the roast dinner and reheated near the end if you need to save time.

Airfryer carrots

Air fryer carrots - baby carrots made in the air fryer

These air fryer carrots take just a few minutes to prepare and then require minimal effort while cooking.

Often I will buy the ready prepared baby carrots, just to save a few minutes of prep work, but you can use full size carrots too and skip the peeling if you want to save some time.

Airfryer roast potatoes

Airfryer roast potatoes

No roast dinner would be complete with my original and best ever air fryer recipe – the air fryer roast potatoes.

I’ve had 100,000s of views on this single recipe and I absolutely love it. These are a real crowd pleaser and make a roast dinner extra special.

I love how easy this recipe is, and so so much faster than standard oven cooking times too. I’ve had lots of compliments on these potatoes in recent years and I absolutely love them.

This is the single recipe I’d choose for my air fryer if I could only make one recipe for the rest of my life in it!

Airfryer chicken wings

I absolutely love these air fryer chicken wings. Crispy, juicy and blinking delicious! These are so simple, you can use just about any dipping sauce or marinade you like and they are tasty too!

Air fryer chicken tikka

Crisp yet juicy inside this air fryer tikka chicken breast is absolutely delicious. This is perfect served in a soft white roll, with chips or even just served on top of slow cooker rice.

Airfryer sweet potato fries

My airfryer sweet potato fries taste delicious, are simple to make and healthy too

If you want to mix things up a little bit then these air fryer sweet potato fries are delicious.

The outside is crispy and the inside is fluffy. I love how easy these are to make and thanks to this *potato chipper I can slice the sweet potatoes with ease. We love to turn these into dirty fries by loading them up and then air frying for a couple more minutes. Delicious!

Airfryer chips

These air fryer chips are one of my post popular posts ever. I love seeing all the feedback on these and they are a great way to still enjoy crispy, tasty chips without frying them.

The air fryer was absolutely made for creating air fryer fries. These work well with just about anything and form the basis of many a fakeaway dish in this house.

Airfryer tortilla chips

Air fryer tortilla chips

If you’re a fan of nachos, tortilla wraps, burritos or just having things to dip into sauce then these airfryer tortilla chips are perfect! So simple to make, and they cost around 20-30p depending on the flour you use, making them super budget friendly.

These are some of my favourite air fryer recipes:

Airfryer hash browns

These air fryer hash browns are quite a new recipe from me. These may be the crispiest hash browns I have ever had outside of a fryer! I love how these can be kept in the fridge for several days, and they were great with all types of breakfast.

We love to enjoy them with poached eggs and spring onions or as part of a delicious full English breakfast. This hash brown recipe is the perfect way to use up some leftovers so that nothing goes to waste.

Air fryer sausages

Air fryer sausages are a simple and delicious treat! Using the air fryer helps them to go extra crispy and delicious while separating the sausages from some of the fat. These are so tasty with a big breakfast!

That is it for now! I’m really pleased to see so many people loving my air fryer recipes and I hope I have given you some inspiration as to what can you cook in an air fryer!

I am going to be sharing lots more of my UK air fryer recipes again very soon. I absolutely love the convenience of my air fryer and can’t get enough of how crispy it makes everything.

I’ve got so many more ideas that I’m hoping to write about soon including air fried chicken, air fryer cookies and even some more roast dinner accompaniments!

Would love a Uk airfryer recipe book. The ones I have seen are American and most of the recipes seem to have pressure and sauté functions.


Monday 28th of December 2020

I think it is because a lot of people use the multi-cookers, which come with saute/brown and pressure functions. I use them personally but don't often put them into my recipes.

I've got lots more recipes planned in the New Year that I hope you'll find useful (And free!) x

All the cook books r for Americans not for the UK am not into posh food just normal day to recipes what's the ninja air fryer mines 3.8l


Saturday 21st of November 2020

Hello, I'm in the UK and own all of those cookbooks and use them with no problems. Most cookbooks are either written for a specific air fryer or with a specific countries measurements, it's really easy to find conversions online if you're stuck. Unfortunately I can't find any UK specific air fryer books at present or I would like to those also.

If you mean what is the capacity of the Ninja Air Fryer then they have multiple models, one is indeed 3.8L. I use a very small Air Fryer so all of the recipes I make should be easily replicated in any standard basket type air fryer.

If you have some other specific questions please do reply and I'll get back to you.
