If you have been reading Budgeting for Bliss for any length of time, you will know that I am a little bit obsessed with my air fryer. In the last year or so, I’ve had so much fun finding and trying new recipes and learning tips and tricks to get the most out of it.

When I received my air fryer for Christmas a couple of years ago, I had no idea the types of food I could cook in it. Honestly, at the time I assumed that it would only be used for cooking frozen french fries and chicken nuggets. Boy, was I wrong! 

I have not only been able to enjoy the convenience of cooking traditionally “fried” foods with less fat but I’ve also loved cooking healthy recipes, breakfast options, side dishes, and desserts  (especially these chocolate chip cookies)in the air fryer. 

Recently, I started looking for homemade appetizers I can make for quick and easy snacks to enjoy during the holidays, on game day, or for that late-night snack craving. These 18 addicting air fryer appetizers include recipes such as chicken wings, fried pickles, stuffed mushrooms, and nachos.

This is the air fryer that I have and I love it. It’s not only budget-friendly but it’s the perfect size for my family of four.
