Air Fryer Easter Recipes
If there is a kitchen gadget out there that you could use exclusively for Easter, then it is the Air Fryer.
The air fryer just shouts out EASY EASTER RECIPES. You can use the air fryer for roast dinners, Easter themed food like lamb, or making your favourite Easter baking treats.
Not to mention our love for delicious Easter side dishes such as roast potatoes or delicious air fryer vegetables.
In the Milner house at Easter time, we normally have a roast turkey dinner along with plenty of sides and it comes second to Christmas for enjoying the festive food and enjoying some family time together.
There will usually be hot cross buns for breakfast, then we will eat way too many Easter eggs and do loads of Easter baking and then late afternoon we will enjoy a roast dinner.

Absolutely! Just imagine your regular Easter routine and then imagine doing it all in the air fryer instead.

The air fryers, that we use at Easter and have in our kitchen are:
- Philips Air Fryer XL (our favourite choice)

We also have a silicone baking pan (well we have two) and they are amazing for avoiding washing up when baking your cakes in the air fryer.
Top 10 Air Fryer Easter Recipes
Let’s start with my air fryer top 10, aka the Easter recipes that you must make and add to your bucket list.
- Air Fryer Hot Cross Buns – This is a variation of our very popular air fryer pull apart bread. Instead of standard rolls we are making a pull apart hot cross buns recipe.
- Air Fryer Roast Chicken Dinner – This is brilliant, and the concept is one you will love. You cook the full roast chicken dinner in the air fryer basket. Roast potatoes, veggies, pigs in blankets, stuffing and so much more.
- Air Fryer Leg Of Lamb – If budget isn’t an issue, splash out at Easter and make a delicious leg of lamb roast dinner in your air fryer oven. OMG I am not a big lamb eater, but I loved this!
- Air Fryer Lamb Chops – One of the first Easter recipes that I ever made and so easy too. You can keep it simple and then serve them with a side of roast potatoes.
- Air Fryer Roast Potatoes – Talking about roast potatoes, these are the ultimate ones with plenty of rosemary and just a small quantity of extra virgin olive oil.
- Air Fryer Carrots – For the ultimate roast dinner side this Easter, why not roast carrots in the air fryer and then cover in honey. So good and you will have a fight for who gets the last one
- Air Fryer Carrot Cake – The best Easter dessert of all time and so easy to make in the air fryer. I couldn’t imagine making it any other way now.
- Air Fryer Mini Egg Cookies – Make use of the local sales on mini eggs and transform them into mini egg cookies in the air fryer. They are so good you will want to bulk buy mini eggs.
- Air Fryer Easter Cake – Wow we had fun making this and using up lots of our favourite Easter chocolates. Its amazing to say this started off as a cake sponge cooked in the air fryer.
- Air Fryer Egg Bombs – These taste too good to share with the kids! Chocolate eggs such as crème eggs or caramel eggs are wrapped in puff pastry and then air fried for the ultimate treat.

Air Fryer Easter Fun With The Kids
I love to have fun with the kids at Easter and there is always plenty of cake and decorating going on.
Air Fryer Eggs For Decorating – We tried decorating brown eggs and they turned out better than we thought. A reminder that the air fryer is brilliant for boiling those eggs before decorating. Try our air fryer duck eggs, or our air fryer hard boiled eggs.
Air Fryer Galaxy Chocolate Cake – Made with a Galaxy easter egg this is delicious and the Galaxy chocolate ganache is its USP.
Air Fryer Mini Egg Fudge – This is another fun sweet treat to make with the kids. We like this because you’re using the air fryer to melt the chocolate and it makes it even easier to make.
