5 Best Blackstone Air Fryer Recipes

1) Dirty Fries

Simple fries are a staple air fryer recipe, and are a great way to showcase the strengths of a Blackstone air fryer. The air fryer perfectly cooks the fries, giving them a light, fluffy inside and a crispy golden outside. 

They’re also incredibly quick and easy to make, and can be prepared in just a few minutes.

However, plain fries aren’t all that exciting on their own – that’s where this tasty dirty fries recipe comes in!

Full of vibrant flavors and colors, these loaded fries are topped with crispy bacon, gooey cheese, and plenty of spices.

Making this delicious recipe is really simple. All you have to do is cut potatoes into fries, coat them in spices, and cook them in the Blackstone air fryer until they’re crispy and golden.

Top the fries with bacon, cheddar cheese, green onions, and more spices until the cheese turns gooey and gets a nice crispy layer on top. It reminds me of making homemade potato skins in the air fryer, just with fries instead of whole potatoes!

One of the best parts of this recipe is that you can customize it in almost any way you like! It’s easy to swap out the bacon for ground beef, shredded chicken, tofu, or any other substitute you prefer.

Alternatively, why not change the cheddar cheese to Pepper Jack for an extra hint of heat, or some mozzarella to give the cheese a better pull?

With a recipe this simple, swapping or adding ingredients is easy and lets you switch things up to suit your preferences. 

Packed with flavor and taking less than 20 minutes to cook, this delicious dirty fries recipe works great as both a side dish, or as a meal if you up the portion size. 

2) Mini Air Fryer Beef Wellingtons

Beef Wellington is often regarded as a difficult and tricky recipe to pull off – but with this simple recipe for mini air fryer beef Wellingtons, things couldn’t be easier!

Tender beef is surrounded by crisp and flaky puff pastry for a tasty bite-sized dish that packs a lot of rich flavors.

This recipe can be a bit trickier than others because it uses puff pastry; this can be hard to work with, especially in a warm kitchen, so you need to work quickly and efficiently to prevent any issues with the pastry.

You also have to do a bit more work beforehand to prepare the filling, making it more complicated than others too.

All this work is more than worth it, however, and these delicious bite-sized beef Wellingtons are sure to be a hit. They’re great for dinners, family gatherings, and parties, with their small size making them a perfect finger food.

These beef Wellingtons are still easier than the original recipe, however, and they use simpler ingredients and a less complicated process.

Instead of using a beef tenderloin, these mini Wellingtons use ground beef instead – this makes them quicker and easier to cook, and suits their hand-held size better.

Ground beef is mixed with onion soup mix, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and an egg to create a patty-like meatball.

Forgot to defrost your meat? No problem! Just defrost your ground beef in the microwave and your meal is back on track!

This is then wrapped in puff pastry and baked in the Blackstone air fryer until the pastry is puffy, flaky, and a rich golden brown.

3) Air Fryer Lobster Tails

3) Air Fryer Lobster Tails

Nothing says decadence like lobster, and lobster tails are often considered to be the best part of this delicious seafood.

While this prestige can make lobster tails an intimidating dish to tackle, using a Blackstone air fryer means that you’ll get perfectly cooked lobster every time!

The trick to cooking lobster, like any other seafood, is taking care not to overcook it.

This is where the complications typically come in – undercook it and you might get sick, overcook it and the lobster will turn rubbery and lose its rich, delicate flavor.

Blackstone air fryers give you better control over the internal temperature, making it much easier to keep your lobster as tender as possible.

As a side note, it’s super-important to make sure that the air fryer is properly preheated before cooking the lobster tail to make sure it cooks evenly.

In addition to the lobster tail itself, this decadent recipe doesn’t really call for much else. Split the lobster tails and slather them with garlic butter, paprika, and salt and pepper before adding them to the preheated air fryer.

Let them cook for 6-8 minutes, adding more garlic butter to the before you serve it.

Rich, buttery, and with a mix of bold yet subtle flavors, these incredible lobster tails proves that meals cooked in an air fryer can be just as decadent and delicious as any other.

With how simple and quick this recipe is, you can make fantastic lobster tails in a Blackstone air fryer with hardly any effort at all!

4) Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower ‘Wings’

This meat-free and low-calorie alternative to Buffalo chicken wings may not have any chicken in them, but don’t think that means they’re slacking in flavor!

These crunchy, juicy, and well-seasoned cauliflower ‘wings’ are every bit as good as the original – maybe even better!

The cauliflower florets make a great vehicle for the range of fragrant, flavorsome Buffalo spice mix, which coats them with a punchy flavor that burrows deep into all the cracks and crevices of the cauliflower. 

When the florets are cooked in the air fryer, these spices and slightly charred edges give the cauliflower a spicy, smoky flavor that is perfectly balanced by the subtle, slightly sweet flavor of the cauliflower.

All you need for a hot and tasty Buffalo sauce is a few simple ingredients you might already have in your pantry.

Combine hot sauce (Frank’s RedHot is the most popular) with a splash of vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and some garlic powder.

You can also coat the cauliflower in a tasty spice mix before adding the Buffalo sauce to give it a burst of extra heat and flavor.

We recommend paprika, cayenne pepper, onion and garlic powder, and a pinch of cinnamon for a smoky, well-rounded mix.

Coat the cauliflower florets with the spice mix and roast them in the air fryer until they’re slightly browned on the edges.

Then take them out of the air fryer, toss them in the Buffalo sauce, and put them back in the air fryer for another few minutes.

This turns the Buffalo sauce into a hot, sticky glaze that completely coats the cauliflower wings and covers them with bold, spicy flavors.

5) Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls

Philly cheesesteak is a classic recipe that’s been given a unique spin in this strange but tasty recipe. Instead of being served as a sandwich, these cheesesteaks instead take the form of crispy egg rolls.

This interesting take might seem like madness at first, but stick with us here – once you try these, you’ll never want the same old boring Philly cheesesteak ever again!

Apart from the bread, most of the components of a Philly cheesesteak sandwich are the same; the steak, melty cheese, spicy peppers, fried onions – it’s all here.

However, the main difference is that these are all used as the filling for an egg roll, and are rolled up in an egg roll wrapper before being cooked to make a tasty bite-sized alternative to this classic recipe.

All the ingredients are cut much smaller than usual, and are mixed together after being cooked to create the egg roll filling.

The steak, onions, peppers, mushrooms, and cheese are spooned into egg roll wrappers, rolled up tight, and cooked in the air fryer until they are a crispy golden brown.

Serve with a spicy cheese dip made with melted Velveeta or provolone cheese and diced chili peppers, and enjoy!

I like to make a bunch and freeze them ahead of time. It’s also easy to cook frozen egg rolls in the air fryer for a delicious snack anytime!
