Yummy! This was today’s breakfast, my kids were in heaven. Some people in the air frying community, refer to these as Elephant Ears, I just think of them as plain old fry bread.


  • 1 can buttermilk biscuits with butter
  • olive oil sprayer
  • garlic salt or powder
  • chile powder


  1. Start by laying out your biscuits on a large cutting board.
  2. Start by using a rolling pin and flatting the biscuits, into large circles.
  3. Place them into your air fryer basket, sprayed with olive oil, so they don’t stick.
  4. I was able to put two in at a time. Do not overcrowd, they greatly expand.
  5. Set your temperature to 350 degrees F
  6. Set your time for 5 minutes.
  7. Continue to cook them 2 by 2, until they are all done. Lay them on a plate
  8. When they are all done the cooking, generously sprinkle with garlic salt and chili powder.
  9. Plate, serve and enjoy!
