No matter what time of year it is, I find myself consistently using my air fryer. Why? Because it makes delicious and easy meals. In the summer, I don’t even have to heat my oven! I’ve made everything from chicken and shrimp to hard boiled eggs and donuts.
The list goes on and on. Today, I’m sharing the steps for making Air Fryer French Fries. French fries are one of those staple foods everyone wants to try and make when they purchase an air fryer. And for good reason. Fries in an air fryer are delicious.
Oh, and did I mention that they have 75% less fat than deep frying?!
Making Air Fryer French Fries
Slicing the potatoes is probably the most difficult part of this whole recipe – and I promise you – you can handle it.
Add a couple tablespoons of olive oil to the fries.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
And these fries are ready to go into your frying basket!
Air fry at 400º Fahrenheit for 20 minutes. I like to shake the basket halfway through just to make sure all of the fries are evenly cooked.
These fries remind me of the fries I get at our hometown fair. Go ahead and sprinkle a little malt vinegar on the top of the fries, too, if that’s your thing.
As long as I have ketchup, I’m a happy girl.
Start heating up that air fryer and get ready to make a few batches. Once the rest of the family tries these French fries, you’re all going to be hooked!
These fries are the perfect side to serve with grilled burgers, fried fish and really anything else you can think of! Grab some helpers to start slicing those potatoes. You’re going to adore these fries!
