4 Simple Air Fryer Freezer Meals
1. Air Fryer Stuffed Peppers
This recipe is not only delicious, but it is the best freezer meal because you can indiviully wrap the peppers. This way, anyone can pull one out for lunch or dinner when they are hungry.
To cook in the air fryer after freezing: Pull out the peppers the morning you plan on using them. Then cook at 350°F/175°C for 10 minutes. Check on them, add cheese, then cook for an additional 5 minutes.
2. Air Fryer Asian Beef and Veggies
This air fryer recipe is so tasty and full of rich, delicious flavors. You will love this one served with rice or cauliflower rice.
To cook in the air fryer after freezing: Take out of the freezer the morning of using. Since the marinade is a soy sauce base, sometimes it can overwhelm the beef and veggies. To avoid this, about 3 hours before cooking, get a bowl, a strainer, and a plate. Place the strainer in the bowl, dump out the marinade into the strainer/bowl. Leave the beef and veggies in the strainer and the marinade in the bowl. Cover with the plate and place back in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook.

To cook in the air fryer after freezing: Pull out the night before and place it in a bowl in the refrigerator so that it doesn’t leak in the fridge. When you are ready to cook in the air fryer, dump out the marinade in a bowl through a strainer. Then place the chicken, vegetables, and pineapple in the air fryer basket and cook for 16 minutes at 380F/190C, flip at the halfway point.
