Which Air Fryer?

I am using the Ninja SP101 Foodi 8-in-1 Air Fryer oven. I chose it over others because I the Ninja Foodi appliances are great and I love that this one folds up to save counter space. It also has a nice, wide basket that allows me to make meals that serve 3-4 people with one cook. This meal is perfect for it. I pile all the ingredients in the basket, spread it out, and air fry. Did you know that air frying is just convection roasting, where hot air is circulated around the food by fans? The benefit of air fryers over full-size ovens for this is that they use less power and heat up much faster!

Keto Air Fryer Dinner Ingredients

air fryer broccoli and brats
  • The star of this dish is the keto and Whole30 compliant Sugar-Free Bratwursts. They’re from Pederson’s Farms, and nightshade-free. Double smoked, made with quality pork raised in Tx. Family-owned and absolutely delicious. You can get them delivered right to your door!
  • Broccoli crowns or you can use the pre-cut broccoli florets to save time. I don’t recommend frozen broccoli because it won’t crisp.
  • Avocado oil spray or you can use any healthy cooking fat.
  • Unrefined salt, I like Redmond Real Salt or Celtic Sea Salt.
  • A Vidalia or sweet onion.
