Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls
Cinnamon rolls are a delightful treat that perfectly captures the essence of Christmas morning. Making them in an air fryer is surprisingly simple and results in soft, fluffy rolls with a golden exterior. Start by preparing your cinnamon roll dough – mix flour, a little sugar, yeast, and warm milk to form a soft dough. Knead until smooth and let it rise until doubled in size. Roll out the dough, spread with melted butter, and sprinkle generously with a mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll the dough into a log and cut into individual rolls. Place the rolls in the air fryer basket, leaving some space between each for expansion. Air fry at 180°C (356°F) for about 8-10 minutes, or until they puff up and turn golden brown. While the rolls are cooking, whisk together powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract to make a simple icing. Drizzle the icing over the warm cinnamon rolls before serving. These air fryer cinnamon rolls are a delightful indulgence, filling your kitchen with a sweet, festive aroma and providing a cozy start to Christmas morning.
Air Fryer Breakfast Frittata
A frittata is a versatile and filling option for a festive breakfast. Start by whisking together eggs, a dash of cream, and your preferred seasonings – a pinch of salt, pepper, and perhaps some dried herbs. For the filling, choose ingredients that offer a festive colour and flavour, such as diced red and green bell peppers, chopped spinach, and crumbled feta or goat cheese. You can also add cooked and crumbled sausage or bacon for an extra savoury note. Pour the mixture into a greased air fryer-safe pan that fits comfortably in your Sensio Home air fryer. Cook at 160°C (320°F) for about 15-20 minutes, or until the frittata is set and the top is lightly golden. This dish is not only easy to prepare but also customizable to suit various tastes. Serve a slice of this warm, fluffy frittata with a side of toasted sourdough or a fresh fruit salad for a complete and satisfying Christmas morning meal.
Air Fryer Hash Browns
Hash browns are a classic breakfast side that can be easily made in an air fryer. Start by grating potatoes and rinsing them under cold water to remove excess starch. Thoroughly pat the potatoes dry to ensure they crisp up nicely in the air fryer. Mix the grated potatoes with a small amount of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Form the mixture into patties and place them in the preheated air fryer at 200°C (392°F). Cook for 10-12 minutes, flipping the patties halfway through, until they are golden and crispy. These hash browns are a perfect addition to any breakfast plate, providing a crunchy and satisfying element. Serve them with a dollop of sour cream or your favourite sauce for an extra flavour boost.
Air Fryer Breakfast Sausages
Sausages are a hearty and beloved breakfast item that cooks beautifully in an air fryer. Place your choice of breakfast sausages in the air fryer basket, ensuring they are spaced out for even cooking. Set the air fryer to 180°C (356°F) and cook for about 10 minutes, turning the sausages halfway through the cooking time. The sausages will cook evenly, resulting in a juicy interior and a nicely browned exterior. Serve these alongside scrambled eggs, toast, or as part of a full English breakfast platter. This method allows for a fuss-free preparation of sausages, avoiding the usual splatter associated with pan-frying.
Air Fryer Pancakes
Pancakes are a breakfast favourite for many, and with an air fryer, they can be made with minimal effort. Prepare your pancake batter by mixing together flour, baking powder, a pinch of salt, milk, an egg, and a little melted butter. For a festive twist, add a dash of cinnamon or a handful of blueberries to the batter. Preheat your Sensio Home air fryer and place silicone muffin cups or a small pancake mould in the basket. Pour the batter into the cups or mould and air fry at 180°C (356°F) for about 8-10 minutes, or until the pancakes are fluffy and cooked through. These air fryer pancakes are a novel and fun way to enjoy a breakfast classic. Top them with maple syrup, a dollop of whipped cream, or a sprinkle of powdered sugar for a sweet and satisfying treat.
