Meatballs cooked in the air fryer have a special place in my heart. In addition to cooking them rapidly, meatballs made in an air fryer are also exceptionally juicy.

They are separated by around half an inch. If you pack the air fryer with meatballs, it will be difficult to finish cooking your appetizer evenly.

Bourbon is it Keto?

Yes! Keto-friendly bourbon or whiskey. The bulk of alcoholic beverages are regarded as low carb. In actuality, each serving of whiskey has no net carbohydrates! Bourbon can be utilised in cooking in addition to being enjoyed in a shot or two in your cocktail. It gives your keto dishes a great flavour.
