Feel free to play around with the size of your pastries, you can do little meatball pastry bites instead of these larger pockets. Or you can do a few of this & that. There is no wrong here. Just delicious! Be playful & load your appetizer tray high with all different sizes. Bet they will go quicker than anything else on your appetizer table.

I’ve learned a lot about the Philips Airfryer in the past few weeks while experimenting with it. I first heard about it while watching my favorite award winning celeb chef Gordon Ramsay using the Airfryer in this Turkey Sliders video.

I wanted to try one asap when I saw how easy it is to use. Gordon refers to the Airfryer as his sous-chef & I would totally agree with that! It’s like having an extra set of hands tending to the food, making more time for you to do other things! The great thing is the Airfryer will automatically turn off once the cooking time is done.

The digital panel on the Airfryer makes it easy to select the perfect cooking time & precise temperature. I love that I don’t have to babysit my food while it cooks. This leaves more time for all the other things I need to get done during this busy holiday season.

The clean up is quick and easy too, the Airfryer includes a variety basket with a redesigned base for easy cleaning. In the Airfryer you can make everything from popcorn, chips, fruit snacks, pastries and of course, everyone’s favorite french fries! The great news is your favorite “not so healthy” french fries can become way healthier. French fries made in the Philips Airfryer contain 60% less fat than fast food fries and come out crispy with a tender inside. We love our Airfryer fries!

  1. i think i would try some donuts or some biscuit’s with some sausage in it sounds delicious i love yours also

  2. I’d like to try making sweet potato fries in this fabulous air-fryer. Your recipe sounds delicious–thanks for sharing!

  3. I know this seems simple and silly but some good crisp french fries would be amazing in this. I do not fry food so this would be a treat for me!

  4. Gosh, I will need to look thru the cookbooks to decide what to make, However, my kids would beg for me to make donuts, so that would probably be the first thing, πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance to win this fantastic giveaway!

  5. Awesome giveaway! I’ve been wanting an airfryer for so long! I would fry some tofu, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, and even zucchini! I think options are endless here πŸ™‚

  6. What a wonderful giveaway! I always love the shrimp toast from the Asian cafe but afraid to deep fry at home. I can’t wait to test it with the Airfryer! πŸ™‚ Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  7. I would make some French fries! I LOVE French fries but don’t eat them often because of how unhealthy they are.

  8. I would love this! I would make my grandmother’s old “Fried Pies” (aka Hand Pies) filled with any fruits or berries available. I loved hers, but this would make them a bit healthier.

  9. I would love to make sweet potato fries, and try out making pastries with various fillings, both sweet and savory. I’ve also read they make a great omelet, so that would be another thing to try.

  10. We make Italian cookies every year that my Grandma always made and they need to be deep fried so this would be wonderful for that recipe.

  11. This is going to sound ridiculous but when I was in the UK, you could get deep fried pizza at the chip shops. I don’t know if that would be achievable but goodness knows I’d try.

  12. Wow there would be so many foods to try! I’d want to try to do “fries” made from potatoes, zucchini, carrots, etc! Thanks for the giveaway.

  13. I would make puff pastrys using fresh fruit or the palisade peach jam I made earlier this year. Plus many others ideas like sweet potato fries!z

  14. What a lovely recipe! I would’ve never guessed you cook make something like it in this machine. I’d love to make sweet potato fries in mine, first.
