FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Absolutely, it is always recommended to spray with an olive oil cooking spray. Olive oil spray seems to be the best since it doesn’t make the basket sticky or gum up the air fryer basket.
In this particular recipe, I tested it and it took about 18-20 minutes in my basket air fryer. I only test recipes in basket air fryers since they are the most popular and most purchased air fryers by consumers. If you have a different style of air fryer, cooking time will probably vary. You will want to check the wedges in the last few minutes of cooking to make sure that they cooked through and crispy. If you want them extra crispy, you can add a few more minutes onto the cooking time.
I like to use russet potatoes for this recipe but you can use Yukon gold or red potatoes if you’d like. Just keep an eye on your cooking time because it will probably vary depending on the size and variety of potato you use.
Absolutely! You are going to want to cook them in the air fryer first. Then top them with cheese and bacon and pop back into the air fryer until the cheese is melted. Finally, top with sliced green onion when serving. Serve with sour cream on the side! It makes a fabulous appetizer!
