Like easy-to-fix meals but not salmon? Choose other frozen meats such as hamburger or chicken patties. Or, if you don’t like meat, try a vegan burger. Any of these patties can be cooked easily in the air fryer.

Make Sandwiches in the Air Fryer

Check your Sam’s Club for a small air fryer. It’s a perfect size for one-person meals. You can even cook a sandwich in it.

When I tried out my cousin’s new air fryer, she and I learned together how to operate it. We practiced recipes in her new appliance for three days. We tried out a grilled cheese sandwich first. It was so good that we made another the next day. Then the third day she thawed out three salmon patties, and we cooked them.

Since there were three salmon patties, we cut the first two in half and they fit just fine inside the basket. The third pattie was cooked by itself.
