Try These Tasty Air Fryer Side Dishes

Quarantine has been the year of the kitchen gadget for our family.

We recently got an Instant Pot and have found so many great recipes that we love. We’ve also had an air fryer for a bit — but until this year — I hadn’t really dug into its uses beyond heating up frozen foods.

Now that I’ve discovered its many uses, I can’t believe I’ve just been using the air fryer to cook my daughter’s chicken nuggets!

Below are some delicious and easy side dish recipes to make with the air fryer —though this is just one of its many uses! It’s also great for bacon, hard-boiled eggs, cookies, meats and fish, and more.

Brigette lives in North Liberty with her husband Brian, energetic daughter Kate (October 2014) and their two cats, Penny and Olive. Originally from the Chicago suburbs, Brigette came to Iowa City to attend the journalism school at the University of Iowa, fell in love with the area, and decided she couldn’t leave. After meeting Brian while working at the same Iowa City restaurant in college, they got married in August 2015 in the heart of downtown. She works full time in project management and as an employee of the Core Fitness Kids Club while finishing her MBA at Upper Iowa University. In her free time, she drags Kate out garage sale-ing, tries to keep up with her reading list and runs, lives for Hawkeye football season, enjoys a good meal on a patio, runs her Bachelor/Bachelorette bracket with her family and friends, and of course, chases her daughter around the pool and the park.
