How to Make French Fries in Air Fryer

  1. Scrub Potatoes: We just wash them and keep the skins on, but you can peel if you prefer.
  2. Cut Potatoes: Clean the potatoes and cut into about ¼” inch strands, making sure all the strands are the same size for even cooking. Rinse the fries under cold water and pat dry.
  3. Season: Add the fries into a bowl and drizzle with oil and toss, season and toss again. Evenly spread the fries into the air fryer basket.
  4. Air Fry: Cook the fries until crispy and golden, tossing half way.
