Trust me, I’m all for a classic Thanksgiving spread, but year after year, it can start to get a little, well, boring. Classic or not, nobody likes a predictable meal! That’s why this holiday season, I’m going to spice up my spread with a few air fryer Thanksgiving recipes. It’s 2020, and in case you haven’t noticed, let’s air fry everything now.

We all know that turkey can take quite a while space in the oven, so why not create sides in your air fryer and save space, time and effort? From classics like delicious mild pumpkin to baked potatoes, there are tons of great options that taste just as good (or even better!) When prepared in your air fryer.

Of course, there are some wildcard options too, including (drum roll please!) Stuffed turkey and egg rolls and fried stuffing balls. Yes, they both taste as good as they look, and no, it’s not embarrassing if your mouth has already started to water. I’m in the same boat.

Oh, what if you haven’t to the air fryer, there couldn’t be a better time to justify buying one. Personally, I’d recommend skipping the smaller sizes and getting a air fryer which is also a toaster—I have had one for a year now, and I hardly use my real oven anymore, because this baby does everything. It fits a ton of food and you can use it to make any of the recipes below and much more beyond.

If you’re cooking for a smaller audience, skip the huge bird and opt for the turkey meatballs! If you’re using leftover turkey on Black Friday, just wait until you get a load of these melting reuben turkey patties.

Okay, okay – I won’t tempt you anymore. Read on for 16 Thanksgiving recipes that put your air fryer to good use.
