I’m a HUGE fan of using the air fryer. With near on 100 air fryer recipes already listed on this website, and lots more planned, it is fair to say that I LOVE using it! Making air fryer side dishes has to be one of my main uses for my own air fryer.

Sometimes we’ll have a slow cooker dinner, or a meal cooked in my Ninja Foodi, and so I’ll use the air fryer to knock up some tasty sides to go with our meal.

So many items cook to perfection in the air fryer. Potatoes crisp up well and frozen food cooks fantastically too. The enclosed cooking area makes the cook time faster than using the oven and it is very convenient for me, as a sufferer of chronic pain, to have the air fryer just sitting up here on the worktop so I don’t have to bend down when using it like I do the oven.

I am always happy that you can spend just a few minutes preparing a side dish for the air fryer, and then it will be crispy and tasty in next to no time at all. Usually with very minimal shaking, checking or flipping too.

Something to note about air fryer recipes is that all air fryers have different sizes, depths and as such the cooking times can vary. All air fryer recipes on this website are intended as a guide, and not a guarantee that the timings will be perfect. Enjoy!
