Air Fryer Brown Sugar Ham
Serve up this delectable brown sugar ham recipe for any holiday dinner or treat your family to a special weekend meal. You make brown sugar syrup, pour it over the spiral-cut ham, and wrap the whole thing up in foil before putting it in the air fryer. It comes out sweet and caramelized after about one hour of cooking time. Due to its size and the inclusion of aluminum foil, we recommend regarding this only as a full-size oven air fryer recipe. Foil in a smaller unit is at risk of coming into contact with heating elements and leaching chemicals into your food when reacting to acidic ingredients.

Do you need to flip food in an air fryer?
Yes, you should flip foods about halfway through the cooking time, just as you would on a grill or in your oven. This allows for even cooking and a nicely-browned exterior.
Do you clean an air fryer after every use?
Yes, you should clean it after every use. Any crumbs that are left over will keep cooking and eventually burn.
Can you have a built in air fryer?
Most air fryers are countertop appliances, but there are plenty of full-size wall ovens with air frying capabilities if you want built-in integration. If you simply mean that you want a cooking appliance with an air fryer built into it, there’s plenty of toaster oven and range options for that, as well. Air fryer range recipes generally do not differ from standard air fryer recipes – only in the quantity you wish to produce in one batch.
