Air-Fried Seasoned French Fries
Be sure to sprinkle the fries with the seasoning as soon as they come out of the air fryer so the seasoning will adhere well. Then serve alongside burgers or chicken wings—or with nothing else at all.
- 2 russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/8-by-3/8-inch (1-by-1-cm) batons
- 1 Tbs. canola oil
- Garlic herb or chili French fry seasoning, to taste
Put the potatoes in a bowl, add water to cover and let soak for 30 minutes.
Preheat a Philips air fryer to 360°F (182°C).
Drain the potatoes and rinse well. Place on a towel-lined baking sheet and pat dry, removing as much moisture as possible. Transfer to a bowl, add the oil and toss to coat.
Place half of the potatoes in the fry basket and insert into the air fryer. Cook for 5 minutes, then increase the temperature to 390°F (199°C). Pull out the basket and, using tongs, toss and stir the potatoes. Return the basket to the fryer. Continue cooking until the potatoes are cooked through and golden brown on the outside, about 15 minutes more, opening the basket 2 or 3 times during cooking to toss and stir them. Transfer the potatoes to a bowl, sprinkle with French fry seasoning and toss to coat evenly. Return the fryer temperature to 360°F (182°C) and repeat to cook the remaining potatoes. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
