Getting families together are always fun, but cooking appetizers can be challenging. For those of you new to my site, you will find that I make the easiest foods, with great ingredients and fun cookware.
I am all about getting together for parties, big games, celebrations but the food I make is always different after all variety is the spice of life and food needs to be changed up and fun! Today, I will share with you a cherished secret recipe for Southern Inspired Air Fried Pickle Chips that literally take minutes to make and taste so good!
With all the travel I do, I have enjoyed foods from so many different places, but today’s food is inspired by a recent trip to the Deep South. Get those air fryers out and let’s make my air fryer breaded pickle chips and lavishly live food out loud.
So I have tested out so many different air fryer’s and I can tell you with certainty that brand matters and so does capacity. The air fryer I used for this is from Amazon, and it will rock your socks without any oil involved!
This electric air fryer has a digital LED touch display which is easy to work with and it also has 7 cooking presets (if you choose to use those) or you can program it yourself. You do not need ANY oil to fry in this! The clean up is as easy as wiping it out!
