MAKE FRENCH FRIES WITHOUT OIL
One of the questions I get asked a lot on social media is how to cook basic things in the air fryer. Air fryers are becoming commonplace now in most homes and naturally folks want to learn how to make some basic recipes. Some companies are just now beginning to add air fryer instructions to their packaging but quite a few haven’t caught up to the air fryer craze yet. Making frozen foods in an air fryer is not only convenient but they come out perfectly crunchy as if you baked them in the oven or fried them in oil! These Air Fryer Frozen French Fries are super easy and crispy! This is my go-to method on making frozen french fries in the air fryer.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
For this recipe and the majority of all recipes like this you will be cooking your french fries at 400 degrees F.
Yes! That is the beauty of the air fryer, they are able to not only cook but crisp up the food that is being cooked in the air fryer. So these do come out crispy without having to use any oil.
Yes, they do not taste any different than if you were to bake them or fry them. You are able to add any of your favorite seasonings to the top to bring out the flavor that you enjoy.
They are healthier in the fact that you are not deep frying them in oil. You are still going to get the calorie and carb intake that it states on the bag but without the extra fat from them being deep fried.
Only if the liner has larger holes in it. I’ve seen a lot of Amazon ads for air fryer liners that have no holes in them. This defeats the purpose of an air fryer. An air fryer needs the air to circulate all around the food to cook it properly. So if you are going to line your air fryer, you will need plenty of larger holes in the liner so the air can get to all sides of the food. I suggest not using any liner at all to get the best possible results.
When making frozen foods like French Fries or chicken nuggets, etc., this will help ensure that the food is cooked as evenly as possible.
These can be placed in an airtight container where they will keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. To reheat place your french fries back in the air fryer and cook for 1-2 minute until warmed through and crispy.
