What Frozen Foods Taste Best in an Air Fryer?

I have yet to find a frozen food that doesn’t taste great in the air fryer.

My favorite frozen foods in the air fryer have to be bagel bites, frozen green beans, tater tots, potstickers, and chicken patties!

What Setting Should My Air Fryer Be For Frozen Food?

Always set your air fryer to the air fryer or air crisp option when air frying frozen foods.

I recommend cooking frozen foods on a manual air fryer setting instead of a pre-set function.

Tips For Cooking The Best Frozen Foods For The Air Fryer

  • Cook each frozen food in a single layer in the air fryer basket to allow for even cooking
  • Cook thicker meats at a lower temperature to allow them to cook from the inside out
  • Cook packaged frozen foods at a higher temperature to allow them to get extra crispy
  • Most frozen foods do not need any added oil unless cooking frozen vegetables or dumplings
  • Use a parchment round or silicone liner for easy clean up

Next time you have one of these frozen foods, air fry them for a quick lunch or dinner and you’ll be using your air fryer every day.
