Yes I do have a few different machines.

The one above isn’t a Foodi.

BUT when I am making multiple things like air fryer cornbread with air fryer ground beef to make spaghetti with, I’d use both.

Tip: You can use Instant Pot recipes for the pressure cooker function easily. You’ll just use the pressure button and the lid that isn’t attached.

    • Set the time

  • Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees.
  • Drain pickles, lay them out on paper towels and pat dry to soak up as much of the liquid off of them as possible.
  • On a plate mix flour and cajun seasonings together (can add other seasonings you want into this)
  • In a shallow bowl pour the buttermilk inside (can add any hot sauce into this if you want heat)
  • In last plate mix Panko breadcrumbs with salt and Italian seasoning. Then pour in olive oil and mix so it is damp.
  • Like an assembly line, put pickle into flour, coat, then shake off excess. Then into buttermilk, and lastly into Panko coating it well on all sides. Allow excess to fall off. Put into air fryer basket.
  • Do this so 1 layer is done, do not overlap them as they won't crisp properly.
  • Close air crisp lid and continue air frying at 390 degrees for 8 minutes. Remove and add another batch. Enjoy immediately with a variety of dips.
