My family is normally on the go and we often find ourselves trying to find quick and easy recipes. In the past year, we’ve found that some of the faster recipes are the ones we make in our airfryer. So here are three of our favorite snacks to make in the air fryer.
This three-ingredient recipe will take you less than 10 minutes and makes for a great snack or topping on a salad. All you need is kale, two teaspoons of olive oil and a dash of the seasoning of your choice. My family uses Montreal steak seasoning, which is a mix of garlic, red and black pepper flakes, salt, dill and coriander, but anything from truffle salt to a preferred dressing will work.
Start by placing the goat cheese onto a cutting board or in a bowl. Evenly slice the goat cheese into pieces. The size can vary depending on how large you’d like them to be. Lay the goat cheese flat and add a dollop of truffle honey onto top of the cheese and spread it around. Then place the bread crumbs in a bowl, then the cheese on top. Cover all sides of the goat cheese with bread crumbs, then place them on a rack to put inside of the air fryer.
Set the air fryer to 400 degrees fahrenheit for three minutes. Fair warning, they will lose their shape a bit because of the heat. If you’d like to avoid this, you can put the goat cheese balls in the freezer for up to two hours before frying them, but if you're like my family and need to whip these up in a rush, it won’t lose any favor if the shape is lost, so we just leave it be.
Place the avocado pieces in the air fryer at 300 degrees fahrenheit for four minutes. If needed, you can leave them in for a little longer.
