Air Fryer French Fries

Air-fried foods are lower in fat than deep-fried foods, which is one good reason to give it a try with a recipe like this. But, just because it saves on some fat and calories doesn’t mean it is light on flavor. These homemade fries are perfectly seasoned to be eaten on their own. Or, dip them into your favorite sauce, like Cowboy Butter or Fry Sauce.

Ingredients & Substitutions

Potatoes: I went with Yukon Gold potatoes for this recipe. They have a waxy texture and a hint of sweetness to them. You could also use russet or red potatoes. Potatoes are a great source of Vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. In a pinch, you can use other varieties of potato.

Seasoned Salt: You can find seasoned salt at most grocery stores and supermarkets. It’s a blend of table salt with other herbs and spices. I like Lawrey’s, but there are hundreds of options!

What is the Best Air Fryer?

I have tested 3 brands in my home and I recommend the Ninja Air Fryer. (affiliate link) You can go up a size if needed, but it is superior in achieving consistent results and also ease of use. I’ve been very happy with this Air Fryer!

Can I Bake the Fries in the Oven?

Yes! Simply follow the instructions as written (including the soaking of the fries) until placing them in the air fryer. Instead of cooking in the air fryer, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the fries in a single layer on the lined baking sheet. Bake at 450°F for 15-20 minutes. Then, carefully flip the fries and cook an additional 5-10 minutes (or until your desired crispness).
