Air fryers have risen in popularity in recent months with Ninja being one of the most sought-after brands as people rush to replace their ovens given the rise in energy bills.

TikTok users regularly take to the video-sharing platform to let others know about their air fryer recipes.

Whether you’re already an air fryer owner or you’re looking for food inspiration before buying one, we’ve rounded up some recipes from TikTok for you to try.

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • 1 tbsp English mustard
  • 1 tbsp light brown soft sugar
  • Unsmoked gammon joint
  • 70g clear honey

This TikTok user chooses the air fry option on a Ninja air fryer and sets the temperature to 180C for 20 minutes.

When it’s done, @thewirelady turns the gammon joint over before cooking it the same as before.

To speed things up, you can be preparing the next part of the recipe as the gammon cooks.

Add the light brown soft sugar into a bowl with the English mustard and honey.

Then, stir the three ingredients together to remove the lumps.

When the air fryer is showing that there are five minutes remaining for the gammon joint to cook, take the bowl and pour the mix over the gammon so it is covered.

Let the gammon cook for the final five minutes.

Take it out of the air fryer and slice.

@thisisplanetfood Day 6 of Airfryer recipes - Cheese Stuffed Onion Rings #easyrecipe #airfryer @Ninja Kitchen UK #cheese #stuffed #onionrings #airfryerrecipes #foodie #british ♬ Crazy - Patsy Cline

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • Onions
  • Pieces of mozzarella
  • Plain flour
  • Beaten eggs
  • Seasoned breadcrumbs

A TikTok user has shared an easy recipe for homemade cheesy onion rings and we’re on board with it.

Start by cutting your onions into thick rings.

Lie a large ring of onion on a surface and put a smaller onion ring inside it then put enough mozzarella between the two onion rings to fill the gap.

Dip both sides of the onion and mozzarella combination into the plain flour, then do the same into the bowl of eggs.

Pop it into the bowl of seasoned breadcrumbs so both sides are covered.

Repeat the dip into the egg and breadcrumbs one more time.

Repeat this process for each onion ring that you’re cooking.

@thisisplanetfood then places three of the onion rings into the air fryer and cooks them for five minutes with the temperature set at 190C.

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • Doritos (any flavour)
  • Sticks of mozzarella
  • 1 egg
  • Flour

Pour your Doritos into a bag that can be sealed. You’ll need to close the bag and crush the Doritos with a rolling pin.

Then whisk the egg in a bowl and put the flour onto a plate.

Dip all sides of each mozzarella stick into the flour and then cover it in the egg.

Put it in the flour again followed by the egg again and then roll it in the Dorito crumbs.

Repeat these steps with each of the mozzarella sticks.

Air fry the mozzarella sticks for 5-8 minutes until they are melted.
