Air fryer Italian sub roll ups could be a quick and easy weeknight meal or served as an appetizer or snack.
My son and grandson helped me make this dinner and we had a great time doing it together.
I basically set out all of the ingredients in a traditional Italian sub and the boys rolled them up into adorable Crescent roll packages.
Then the air fryer took over and did the rest of the work for us 🙂
How to make air fryer Italian sub roll ups
For the meats I went with ham, salami, and pepperoni.
And we used a half a string cheese in each roll up instead of sliced or shredded cheese.
Plus we made an easy garlic butter with Italian seasoning to brush over top.
First separate the Crescent roll dough into triangles.
And in the center of each add a slice of ham, a slice of salami, and a few pieces of pepperoni.
Then half of each string cheese.
My son did a great job helping my grandson with how to assemble the roll-ups.
These guys were pretty proud of their hard work!
Once all of the rolls are assembled, place them in an air fryer basket.
Then melt some butter and add garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
And brush the butter over top of the roll-ups, my grandson did a great job with the brushing.
Set the air fryer for 360 degrees for about 7 to 9 minutes.
Check toward the end of cooking and remove once the Crescent rolls are golden brown and cooked how you like.
Serve air fryer Italian roll ups with banana Peppers and pizza sauce for dipping!
We had a few side dishes to make this feel like more of a complete meal.
But serving these as a snack or appetizer for any game day or celebration would be perfect.
