Description

See how EASY it is to make perfectly crispy frozen french fries in your air fryer!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 16 ounces of frozen fries (that is about how much fits neatly into my air fryer but this will vary by model)
  • Optional cooking spray

Instructions

Plain fries:

  1. Pre-heat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place fries in the air fryer with option to spray them with a little cooking oil (I’ve found that this gets the fries a little crispier but they still turn out great without it!).
  3. Cook for 18-22 minutes, tossing halfway. ENJOY!

Sweet Potato Fries:

  1. Pre-heat the air fryer to 350 degrees F. I found that these turn out better cooked a little lower (350 instead of 400).
  2. Place fries in the air fryer with option to spray them with a little cooking oil (I’ve found that this gets the fries a little crispier but they still turn out great without it!).
  3. Cook for 12-15 minutes, tossing halfway. ENJOY!

Seasoned Curly Fries:

  1. Pre-heat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place fries in the air fryer with option to spray them with a little cooking oil (I’ve found that this gets the fries a little crispier but they still turn out great without it!).
  3. Cook for 12-15 minutes, tossing halfway. ENJOY!

Waffles fries:

  1. Pre-heat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place fries in the air fryer with option to spray them with a little cooking oil (I’ve found that this gets the fries a little crispier but they still turn out great without it!).
  3. Cook for 18-22 minutes, tossing halfway. ENJOY!

Thick/ steak fries:

  1. Pre-heat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place fries in the air fryer with option to spray them with a little cooking oil (I’ve found that this gets the fries a little crispier but they still turn out great without it!).
  3. Cook for 15-20 minutes, tossing halfway. ENJOY!

Notes

For all of the recipes: it’s okay if the fries are slightly overlapped but you don’t want to over crowd the basket by having multiple layers of fries. I aim for one layer that a bit packed
