1. Easy Air Fryer Apple Pies

It was perfect! I know I will make it many more times. Thank goodness for air fryers,” says reviewer Vicky Rossano.

3. Air Fryer Baked Potatoes

The perfect side dish to any meal, these air fryer baked potatoes are crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside. Serve them with your favorite baked potato toppings — like butter, sour cream, chives, cheese, and bacon. If you can’t use peanut oil, try olive oil, duck fat, or bacon grease.

4. Air Fryer Apple Crisp with Oatmeal Streusel

Air fry your apple crisp for a super crispy oatmeal streusel topping and a soft and moist apple center. Top with ice cream or whipped cream and caramel sauce, or eat it straight out of your air fryer,” says Allrecipes Allstar Yoly

These steak and cheese melts make for a great appetizer or dinner, and they’re made completely in the air fryer. “I loved how easy this was to make!! I love my air fryer and Philly cheesesteak so this was perfect,” says home cook Heather Doherty Musto.

6. Air Fryer Turkey Breast

If you’re craving turkey or hosting a small Thanksgiving gathering, this top-rated turkey breast is so easy to make in the air fryer (and it feeds six). The turkey is topped with an herb butter made with rosemary, chives, and garlic, but you can use any herbs you like. “The turkey breast was moist and delicious! We’ll be making it again as it’s super easy and tastes great,” says reviewer Kris.

7. Air Fryer Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes

These pumpkin-flavored donut holes are coated in a pumpkin spice and cinnamon-sugar mixture. If you want, you can glaze these donuts — recipe creator Yoly suggests glazing them with a milk and confectioners’ sugar mix.

8. Air Fryer Walnut-Pumpkin Pie Cookies

9. Air-Fried Chicken Calzone

These air-fried chicken calzones are the perfect appetizer for your fall get-together. They’re packed with spinach, mozzarella, marinara, and cooked chicken breast — and you can use a rotisserie chicken to save some extra time. Serve these calzones with extra marinara for dipping.

10. Air Fryer Oven Brownies

I made this recipe in my Cuisinart® Air Fryer Oven and my brownies wound up with a crispy and crackly top yet soft and gooey in the center. Air frying the brownies cuts the baking time in half and there’s no need to preheat your air fryer oven,” says recipe contributor Yoly.
