My Air Fryer obsession just keeps growing.  It’s so strong now that my Air Fryer has gained countertop real estate.  Now, that is a big deal around here because I only let the appliances that I truly use regularly up there.

It’s sitting right next to the other appliance that I can’t live without, the coffee pot.

I won’t knock the slow cooker or the Instant Pot entirely, but the Air Fryer is my go-to for everything.  It’s my saving grace when I’m in a pinch, you can literally cook nearly everything in it…even toast!

I also love that I don’t have to heat up my oven and get so many pans out to cook dinner, simply toss the food in the Air Fryer and cook it and serve it.

How do you make Air Fryer Pickles?

This past week, I decided to try some Gluten-Free Air Fryer Fried Pickles and they were delicious!

Of course, you can make these with regular bread crumbs if gluten-free isn’t a need for you.

We decided to serve ours with ranch dressing, that’s just a must in Oklahoma.  Then, we ate up!  Basically you can use any of your favorite varieties of pickles to make these.

Plus, you can use this same method to make Onion Rings in the Air Fryer too or Air Fryer Squash, basically anything can be made with this method of breading them.
