6 Air Fryer Friendly Phyllo Recipes

The saying goes, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.” We say, if you can’t stand the heat, crank up the air fryer. These six recipes are designed with the air fryer in mind, meaning you can stay cool and still enjoy that golden phyllo crunch. Plus, using an air fryer will save you time and make cleanup easy.

This unfussy Reuben roll-up is the ideal size and shape for dunking in thousand island dressing. The trick to stellar results? Once you’ve laid your corned beef, sauerkraut and swiss down on the phyllo, roll it up, but not too tight. This will keep your Reuben from bursting.

Chicken Mango Phyllo Purseschicken mango phyllo purses - air fryer recipe

These phyllo purses plus a simple summer salad = a weeknight dinner we’ve got on repeat. Shred rotisserie chicken, add diced mango and a few fixings, and then bundle in phyllo. For best results, don’t overcrowd your air fryer — you may need to work in two batches.

Fragrant spiced pecans. Crispy phyllo. Honey syrup. What’s not to like? These pecan rolls are a fun take on baklava but come together faster. For an over-the-top treat, we particularly like them served with a scoop of peach ice cream.

These turnovers taste like summer, but you can make them any time. Mangoes can be harvested year-round in parts of the U.S., and bananas are easy to find at your local grocer even in the coldest months. Make this recipe now and in mid-February when you’d give anything for a tropical vacay.
