What would a Super Bowl party be without wings? While the Bills may not be in the big game, the party staple named after their town is a tailgate must-have.
Take 2.5 pounds of chicken wings and pat dry, then season with salt and pepper. Cook in air fryer at 350 degrees F for about 15 minutes; Increase the temperature to 400 degrees, flip the wings and cook for another 10 to 15 minutes, turning the wings every now and then.
Meanwhile, melt between 1/4 and 1/3 cup butter and toss with 1/2 cup hot sauce (Frank’s Red Hot is your top choice). When the wings are done, toss them with the hot sauce mixture in a large bowl and serve with blue cheese dressing and celery sticks.
Buffalo Cauliflower Bites
This meatless version of Buffalo Wings uses cauliflower instead of chicken. Take a head of cauliflower and cut into florets; melt between 1/4 and 1/3 cup butter, mix with 1/2 cup hot sauce and toss with the florets. Combine 1/3 cup cornstarch, 1/3 cup flour, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, and 1 teaspoon salt, then mix with the cauliflower. Cook at 375 degrees F for about 10 minutes or until cauliflower turns golden brown. Serve with blue cheese dressing and celery sticks.
Here’s another great finger food that’s easy to make: mini meatballs that can be made with ground beef, turkey, chicken, or pork and served with any dipping sauce you like.
Combine 1 pound ground beef with one egg, 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup chopped parsley, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and roll into balls about 1 inch in diameter. Cook at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes.
For a meatless meatball, falafel is a great option. Drain a 15-ounce can of chickpeas and toss them with 4 cloves garlic, 1/4 cup parsley, 1/4 cup coriander, 1 chopped shallot, 2 teaspoons cumin, and 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Use the pulse function on one of the best blender so that it doesn’t turn into a paste, but still has small pieces in it.
Season with salt and pepper to taste, along with 1 teaspoon baking powder and mix well. Form small balls with a diameter of 1 to 1.5 cm. Air roast at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, turning halfway through. Serve with tahini or yogurt sauce.
Anyone who remembers elementary school lunches will have a fondness for tater tots — those little, crunchy potato treats. Keep things simple and buy a box or three of these (they’ll go fast, trust us) and then have an array of dipping sauces ready, like ketchup, barbecue sauce, or melted cheese. Follow package directions for air frying.
Make it easy for yourself and buy a pack of frozen onion rings. If you want to create them from scratch, the process is pretty simple. Cut 2 to 3 fairly large onions into rings about 1/2 inch thick.
Get three bowls: In the first, add 1 cup of flour; in the second beat two eggs; in the third, add 1 cup breadcrumbs or panko. Dip the onion rings in the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs and put in the air fryer. Cook at 400 degrees F for about 8 minutes, turning once halfway through.
For a little more flavor, add a teaspoon each of salt, pepper, paprika powder, and garlic powder to the flour.
As with onion rings, you can save yourself some time by purchasing pre-made mozzarella sticks. If you want to make them yourself, get a packet of mozzarella sticks (the ones from the dairy aisle), cut them in half and follow the same instructions as for making onion rings. You want to make sure all sides of the mozzarella are covered, otherwise the melted cheese will spill out and make a real mess in your air fryer.

Another delicious and quick appetizer; You can buy pre-made pigs in a blanket, but it’s just as easy to make your own. All you need is bite-sized hot dogs and a packet of puff pastry. Defrost the puff pastry and cut into small triangles, then wrap each one around a mini hot dog. Cook in your air fryer at 350 degrees F until the puff pastry is golden brown. Serve with some spicy mustard.
While hamburgers are one of the things you shouldn’t cook in an air fryer, sliders are an exception. These little burgers are quick to prepare – and just as quick to disappear.
Keep things simple: Get a pound of ground beef, season well with salt and pepper, and form into small patties, about 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter. Cook at 350 degrees F in air fryer for 10 minutes or until patties are browned. Serve with mini buns, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes or other toppings of your choice.
This recipe takes prepared ravioli up a notch. Thaw a pack of frozen ravioli (you can use fresh ravioli too); In a bowl, beat two eggs. In a second bowl add 1 cup flour. In a third bowl, combine 1 cup breadcrumbs and 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese. Dredge the ravioli in flour, then dip in the egg mixture and then coat in the breadcrumbs. Repeat for the remaining ravioli.
