Air Fryer Mushrooms with Garlic Herbs and Cheese

You will love just how easy and tasty this recipe for air fryer mushrooms with garlic herbs and cheese melted over the top is. This is a firm favorite amongst my family.

I love mushrooms and have been experimenting with different ways of cooking them for a while. The air fryer is a great way to cook them as it takes out a lot of the moisture and lets the mushrooms cook evenly.

To add a bit of flavor, I usually add a bit of garlic butter and some Italian herbs. I top them with cheese. Cooking in the air fryer then allows the cheese to melt and form a lovely crispy layer on top.

If you have not already purchased an air fryer then let me help you along in your decision to purchase one.

Air fryers are a great kitchen tool because they allow you to cook with less oil and which means you can cook healthier food at home without sacrificing the flavor.

The space inside an air fryer is much smaller than a conventional oven resulting in less electricity usage in cooking. You do not need to preheat most air fryers and so your meal is often cooked in the air fryer quicker than it would take to preheat your oven.

Lastly, cooking is so easy. Load the basket, set the team and time, and press start. The air fryer will automatically start up and switch off once done.

Cleaning is also so simple and easy as the surfaces are all non-stick. Swirl in a little soapy hot water and wipe with a cloth. Rinse out and dry.
