Nutritional information is approximate and is meant as a guideline only.
When the fries are cooked, remove them from the air fryer and let them cool on a paper towel-lined plate.
Once they are cool, transfer them to an airtight container and place them in the fridge.
When you are ready to enjoy the fries again, reheat them in the air fryer for a few minutes until they are warm and crispy.
Top Tips:
  • Preheat the air fryer before adding the fries. This will help to ensure that they cook evenly.
  • Don't overfill the air fryer basket, you want the air to be able to circulate around the fries.
  • Shake the basket halfway through cooking to prevent sticking and promote even browning.
  • Keep an eye on the fries as they cook, as cooking times may vary depending on the size and type of fryer. If you find that your fries are not cooking evenly, try flipping them over or moving them around in the basket.
  • Consider the thickness of the fries. If the fries are thin or skinny, decrease the cooking time. For example, you can leave thicker fries in the air fryer for longer.
  • Spray a bit of olive oil or cooking spray on the fries for extra crispness. Be careful, though; spraying too much oil will result in mushy fries, you only need a little oil.
