Amaze Your Family with Air Fryer Holiday Recipes

by Waverly Wilde

Autumn weather, loved ones gathering together, and lots of food to cook and eat – it must be time for Thanksgiving! Yes, the fall holiday is just around the corner but instead of cooking up the same meals the traditional way, how about spicing up this year's feast with these air fryer recipes? Before you write that idea off as absurd, let us explain why cooking food with Air Fry technology isn’t as outrageous as you may think.  

First off, air frying is a healthier way to enjoy meals while still getting that crispy, fried exterior and delicious flavor of deep frying. But instead of using hot oil to cook your food, you’re primarily using the circulation of hot air through the use of convection fans inside your oven to evenly cook your meals.  

If you’re looking for a quicker way to cook and give your dinner guests a tasty new way to enjoy Thanksgiving, check out these easy air fryer meals on a range equipped with Air Fry technology.

1. Thanksgiving Turkey 

Instead of cooking up your usual 15-pound turkey, this air fryer thanksgiving turkey recipe wants you to use a little less so that you’re only working with the turkey breast instead of the entire bird. Also, because you’re not using a whole turkey, you don’t have to worry about taking the meat out of the freezer days in advance in order to thaw it in time. The turkey breast, if frozen at all, will take no more than a couple of hours to thaw out so that your Thanksgiving prepping can start without a hitch. 

Season your turkey just the way you like – perhaps with a dash of salt, pepper, and fresh herbs – and pop it in your range with Air Fryer tech. While you’re waiting for that to cook for 30 minutes, create a mixture of maple syrup, Dijon, and melted butter. You’ll remove your turkey breast from the oven, slather it with your concoction, and put back in the Air Fryer for another couple of minutes so that it can get that perfect caramelized exterior that’s sure to be a hit. 

2. Sweet Potatoes 

Thanksgiving prep can take all day, so having something easy and delicious to make on the big day can be a godsend. These air fryer sweet potatoes are exactly the quick recipe you need for those holidays when you’re in a rush. In fact, the only ingredients you need for this meal are sweet potatoes (obviously), oil, and salt. Simply rub your sweet potatoes with the oil and salt, and transfer to the range with Air Fryer feature for only 30 to 45 minutes, depending on their sizes. And just like that it’s done! Toppings such as butter, maple syrup, and pecans are all very much encouraged. 

3. Pecan Pie 

We couldn’t imagine Thanksgiving without a slice of pecan pie to nibble on after the turkey dinner, so we added an air fryer pecan pie recipe to the list! The best part about using the Air Fry setting on your range when making this dessert? That it takes under 30 minutes to bake! The Air Fry technology heats the pie quickly, evenly, and browns the surface just right so you get perfect crust that bakers only dream about.
