Bump.

Got an air fryer today. I know it’s great for vegetables and I’m going to try salmon soon.

Any other recommendations?

French toast. 

Anything fried is better in there than oven (nuggets, fries, tots, pizza rolls, etc.).

Was out of gas for the grill once and made some great steak. Cooked more evenly, though a little more medium than I wanted as I hadn’t done it before.

Along lines of frozen, I’ve done homemade fries, “fried” chicken, smashed potatoes, etc. Very good and obviously eliminated a lot of the unhealthy oil.

I was cleaning some stuff out of my mother in law’s house (hoarder pack rat) and found it unopened. Cooked some potatoes in it earlier and worked well. It’s nothing fancy.

350 for around 5 minutes. You can cook almost anything in an air fryer, if it will fit.

Trying to wrap my head around this one.  You're talking egg-soaked breatd, or the French toast sticks?

Egg, milk, vanilla extract, maple syrup mixed. Soak the brioche (left uncovered overnight to get a bit stale). Add butter, cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar as toppings as desired.

Last few photos I have on my phone from some air fryer stuff. But it’s incredibly useful, and fast. And the best part, for me, is it has a timer on it so the ability to prep everything and have it be done at the same time is great. Particularly when the oven is being used for something else.

Photos kinda blurry. Not sure why. But you get the point.
