Air Fryer French Fries

Ditch the deep fryer and embrace the healthier side of fried goodness. These homemade fries, crafted from Yukon Gold potatoes, offer a waxy texture and a hint of sweetness, elevating the traditional fry experience. The use of an air fryer not only reduces fat content but ensures a perfectly crispy exterior and a fluffy interior.

Why Choose Yukon Gold Potatoes?

Yukon Gold potatoes bring a unique texture and subtle sweetness to our recipe. Packed with Vitamin C, potassium, and fiber, these potatoes offer a nutritious base for your favorite snack. Feel free to experiment with russet or red potatoes if Yukon Gold is not available, providing flexibility without compromising taste.

Can you make French Fries in the Oven?

If you prefer oven-baked fries, follow the instructions until the air fryer step. Instead, place the fries on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 450°F for 15-20 minutes. Flip them carefully and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes until desired crispness.
