I do not know of one single soul that doesn’t love cheesecake. When I figured out that my air fryer had the ability to bake a cheesecake, I was floored! What can’t this gadget do? I believe I have found a foolproof way to make the creamiest and most perfect cheesecake in under 20 minutes! Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself. Oh! I topped it with Peach Cobbler too. I know, I know. You’re welcome!
The crust is important. It’s the foundation of a delightful cheesecake. I like to keep it traditional. But, with an added crunch. Walnuts! My goodness what a difference these finely chopped little nuts make. They pair perfectly with those buttery, graham cracker crumbs. Optional, but highly recommended.
Another essential rule of thumb to remember is to avoid over mixing the cheesecake batter. Cracks are created this way. And we all know, “crack is wack!” RIP to the Great Whitney Houston. Anyway, once you incorporate the eggs into the batter, mix only until combined.
All air fryers are not the same. However, I almost certain that my timing will work across the board. Just make sure that you allow the cheesecake to air fry for a full 20 minutes before stopping it to check. This will prevent cracks as well. If you need extra cooking time, add them in 5 minute intervals.
This cheesecake as absolutely perfect. Even served plain or with the simple addition of fruit. But, of course, I had to be extra. And when you try my Peach Cobbler topping, you’ll be glad I did!
Can’t have peach cobbler with the…well…cobbler. These cobbler crumbles are homemade and extremely easy to whip up. I also “baked” them in the air fryer. It took a little under 10 minutes to do so.
Once the cobbler crumbles and peach topping are done, it’s time to assemble! Crumbles first. Then, cover them with those delectable peaches. Oh! Can’t forget a dollop of fresh whipped cream! The only con to this recipe? It’s so easy to make you will want to make it often!
I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been on the supermarket with zero intentions of buying a rotisserie chicken. But, the smell is irresistible! And I leave with a hot and ready bird everything time. Imagine my excitement upon discovering that I could prepare that same style of chicken at home in my air fryer! Of course, I wouldn’t be Coop if I didn’t make it Cajun style! No worries. It’s not spicy at all.
My air fryer is 5.8 quarts. I try to find a chicken between 3-4 lbs. Although a 5 lb chicken would fit, I find that it’s more difficult to handle. a larger chicken would also increase the cooking time, due to the injected marinade and weight.
There are many inject able marinades on the shelf. But, this brand is my absolute favorite! The flavor is intense without being salty. It’s magical. You can use the entire jar and marinate it overnight without worrying about the chicken being overly salted.
Since the marinade is light on sodium, I can add more spices. My spice blend has just the right amount of everything! The skin of rotisserie chicken is a highlight for me. And this blend of spices compliment it perfectly.
I also use a little bit of the spice mix in some softened butter. This goes under the breast skin of the chicken. White meat of the chicken can be the driest part. This step, along with the marinade, helps ensure that, that won’t happen.
50 minutes produces the perfect whole chicken for me. But, air fryers are different. Be sure to keep an eye on the chicken. This is why a meat thermometer is necessary. Stop and check it often to ensure that it isn’t burning or browning too quickly. If the breasts are browning before the chicken is cooked through, cover the breasts with a piece of foil and continue air frying.
It’s very important to allow the chicken resting time before serving. This will settle those juices. However, this marinade is serious! Even after resting, the juices may spray out when carving the chicken. It’s a good thing! Just warning you before it can be a shock.
Air Fryers have changed the game for the better! I haven’t turned by stove on in a while! Air Fryers have made cooking so much easier and healthier! Not to mention, the clean up is extremely easy. Thanks to the nonstick surface of the cooking chamber. I did not think I could love this machine any more. Then, I made hamburgers in it! Oh my goodness! These burgers cooked in under 15 minutes. They were extremely juicy! I just had to share my recipe with you!
First things first. I am not a “Salt n Pepper” burger kind of chick. You know how some folks just form the meat into a patty and sprinkle salt and pepper on each side. Not I! Not knocking those that do, but I need a little extra flavor! You can always just use my air frying timing and your own seasoning blend. I do HIGHLY recommend trying my recipe as is. It is truly delicious! In my unbiased opinion of course. Ha!
The burgers were perfect as is. But, I just had to be extra and add cheese! Cheese makes nearly everything better! And these burgers are no different. Just add a cube of your favorite cheese to the center of the meat while forming each patty. As it air fries, the cheese will melt into gooey goodness!
My recipe yields 7-10 burgers depending on the size you make them. Keep in mind that they will shrink a little during the air frying. So, you may want to overcompensate for the size while forming your patties.
There are many different brands of air fryers. So, you make have to adjust my cooking times to fit your unit and to achieve the level of doneness you prefer. This recipe is way to easy and flavor not to try! Look at that cheese!
