Frozen Dumplings In Air Fryer
I am like a big kid in a candy shop, when something new arrives in the supermarket, especially in the frozen section, because I want to try it out in the air fryer and see what all the fuss is about.
That was me in Portugal just before we left, to move back to England when I saw some Eastern European German style frozen potato dumplings.
They had both frozen potato dumplings and frozen meat dumplings and they went in the air fryer, so fast.
I must admit, I much preferred the frozen meat ones over potato, but both were delicious.
I headed back to the supermarket, grabbed some more to photo for you and to perfect for the cook times and a second batch to make a video for you.

My first thought was cook some soup maker beer cheese soup and then add these air fried dumplings on top. Like a fun way to enjoy croutons.

They are just like steamed dumplings but have a wonderful crisp to them instead. A bit like the crisp you get on breaded mushrooms, but not too crispy like battered onion rings.
It’s a nice in between and ideal for quickly cooking in the air fryer, then serving with dinner, or having as a quick appetizer.

Another alternative is to have beer cheese soup, bread machine beer cheese bread and dumplings as a pairing of three for an amazing evening meal.
