Frozen Cauliflower Cheese
One of my favourite foods to air fry is frozen cauliflower. Over the last couple of months, we have shown you how to cook frozen cauliflower in air fryer, how to use the same type of frozen cauliflower to make an air fryer cauliflower cheese, but what we haven’t shown you is how to cook from frozen a full bag of already prepared and cooked frozen cauliflower cheese.
Just like you probably are now, I was curious to what frozen cauliflower cheese bags would be like, how well they would air fry, and if it would in fact be much quicker in the oven compared to the air fryer.
I was in Aldi and spotted these great big bags of frozen cauliflower cheese and bought a few bags so that I could test them out in the air fryer and see if they were any good.
And you know what? We loved them and were amazed by how good frozen cauliflower cheese is in the air fryer.

Frozen Cauliflower Cheese Air Fryer Ingredients
Cauliflower Cheese – We used one bag of frozen cauliflower cheese in the air fryer. I don’t recommend more than one bag, as otherwise it wont all fit and it will take too long to air fry.
Cheese – I also added extra cheese to the frozen cauliflower cheese. You could skip this step, but is there ever a time when you add too much cheese?
