Ninja Foodi Recipes – A Quick Glance at My Favorite Ninja Foodi Recipes!

Ninja Foodi Recipes

Looking for great Ninja Foodi Recipes? Here is your one stop shop! Learn how to make everything from Roast Chicken to frozen fast food french fries in your Ninja Foodi! This is an ongoing compilation of air fryer recipes, pressure cooker recipes, and basically everything you can make in your Ninja Foodi to simplify your LIFE!

I received a Ninja Foodi for Christmas. Actually, I received a different air fryer, but when I read the online reviews (coupled with a facebook post I read the night before I received it, regarding the unit catching on fire while UNPLUGGED) I was hesitant to keep this particular model in my house.

I had been wanting a Ninja Foodi since the very first video I saw of it over the summer. That price point though…ouch!

Thankfully, with the funds from the returned air fryer AND some Christmas money, I was able to procure my very own Ninja Foodi!

So far, we have made a long list of items:

  1. Bacon – Air Fry
  2. Roast Chicken – Pressure Cooker & Air Fry
  3. Frozen Mozzarella Sticks – Air Fry
  4. Super Pretzels – Air Fry
  5. Bacon & Eggs – Air Fry and Saute
  6. Burgers and Hot Dogs – Air Fry
  7. French Fries – Air Fry
  8. Brussels Sprouts – Air Fry
  9. Dino Chicken Nuggets – Air Fry

I already have an Instant Pot, so honestly I was more interested in the Ninja Foodi for the air frying feature and because I would need more fingers and toes to count how many times I have wished I had a second pressure cooker!

So far, it has not disappointed me!

I wanted to create a post to share some of the tried/true Ninja Foodi recipes that I have been able to use the Ninja Foodi for.

I did not want to do separate posts for all the recipes (because it seems silly to write an entire post about how to cook frozen mozzarella sticks in an air fryer), but still wanted a one stop shop for anyone specifically looking for Ninja Foodi Recipes, even if they are as simple as how long to air fry a pound of frozen french fries.

(However, as I do post Ninja Foodi recipes you will find them here)

I will expand on this list as I learn more about my Foodi and post more recipes to my website! If you have a Foodi, be sure to bookmark this post for future Ninja Foodi Recipes. I will also try to share any updates to my FFF Facebook group!

Bacon – Air Fry

First up is bacon! My first time making bacon in the air fryer, I cut the bacon in half before putting the slices on the included rack. The next time, I did not, trusting that the bacon would shrink up before it burnt on the bottom. It was a success!

I air fried the bacon on the included wire rack for 12 minutes. This resulted in very crispy bacon. I will play with less time and update!

Roast Chicken – Pressure Cooker & Air Fry

I made this according to the Foodi directions in the book included with your Foodi. My chicken was a bit bigger though and was not fully cooked unfortunately. Next time I will cook pressure cook 5 minutes per pound as I have seen suggested elsewhere and then air fry until crispy. I will update with my results!

Frozen Mozzarella Sticks – Air Fry

370 for 7 minutes. Check these often and if the cheese starts leaking out, you are ready! I flipped these 1/2 way. They were beautiful and tasty! I did these in the air fry basket.

Super Pretzels – Air Fry

350 for 5 minutes. I did not flip these. I otherwise made these according to package directions. Keep an eye on them! They crisp up quickly and beautifully. I did these in the air fry basket.

Bacon & Eggs – Air Fry and Saute

Bacon made as noted above. Then removed and placed on a paper towel. Poured out all but a teaspoon of bacon grease and scrambled up 4 eggs on med/hi saute mode! So tasty and only messed up one pot!

Burgers and Hot Dogs – Air Fry

Burgers were not done enough to our liking…so I will update when I make these to our liking.

Hot dogs however…oh my gosh! 6 minutes at 390 degrees in the air fryer basket.

French Fries – Air Fry

Basically the reason people get air fryers, amiright? These were amazing! We bought the Fast Food Ore Ida French Fries. They were super tasty!

We just followed the time/temperature setting in the included Ninja Foodi cookbook and these were perfect.

Brussels Sprouts – Air Fry

I have this on here as a place holder. These did not turn out great. Some parts way too crispy, some parts way too hard. Not a fan. Will keep trying though as brussels sprouts are basically my fave cooked veggie!

Dino Chicken Nuggets – Air Fry

This was actually the very first thing I made in my Foodi since I had not yet gone grocery shopping. My dino chicken nuggets were likely even a bit freezer burnt since they had been in my deep freezer for so long.

They were great though!

400 degrees for 9 minutes and they were perfectly crispy and tasty. Made in the air fryer basket.

In addition, any of my Instant Pot recipes can be adapted for the Ninja Foodi by using the same exact instructions!

  1. Hi! I’m looking for a really good pot roast recipe for my ninja Foodi. (will be converting beef recipe over to use for a venison roast ). Do you have any of these? Thank you for your time & have a great weekend. Susan

    1. I have made roast in my instant pot many times now, but I have not taken the time to write out my recipe! I will get to work on that this month! Any excuse to eat roast 😉 Thanks for the idea!

      1. I like to make my roast in the slow cooker — pretty much the only way I will make it now. I use Lipton Recipe Secrets (onion, or sometimes the one with mushrooms), mix with water, and then add enough water to pretty much cover the roast. Depending on the size of the roast, I use 1 up to 2 packets of the mix. Slow cook on low for 8 hours. I’ve made both beef and venison roast this way, and it has always been “falling apart with a fork” delicious.

  2. Hi,
    I have a brand new ninja foodie. I want to make split pea & ham soup. I have a frozen ham bone and frozen ham pieces. Can I make this in the pressure cooker with the frozen elements as above?

    Thanks for your help.
