Prep Time: 10-minutes prep
Cooking Time: 20-minutes cooking time
Serving Size: 4 servings
- 4 large russet potatoes
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Temperature: 400°F (200°C)
- Start by washing the potatoes thoroughly, then peel them if desired. Leave the skin on for a more authentic fast food-style experience.
- Cut the potatoes into French fry shapes, similar to the size you would find at your favorite fast-food restaurant. Aim for about 1/4-inch thick and 3 to 4 inches long.
- Place the cut potatoes in a bowl of cold water and let them soak for 30 minutes. This step helps remove excess starch and results in crispier fries.
- After soaking, drain the potatoes and pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel or paper towel.
- Preheat your Kalorik Air Fryer or Kalorik Air Fryer Oven to 400°F (200°C).
- In a separate bowl, combine the vegetable oil, salt, garlic powder, paprika, and black pepper. Toss the dried potatoes in the oil mixture until they are evenly coated.
- Arrange the seasoned potatoes in a single layer in the air fryer basket or on the air fryer tray, making sure they are not overcrowded. Cook in batches if necessary.
- Air fry the potatoes at 400°F (200°C) for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and crispy, shaking the basket or flipping the fries halfway through for even cooking.
- Once cooked, transfer the fries to a serving dish and season with additional salt if desired.
Chef's Tip: For an even closer fast food-style experience, you can double-fry the fries. After the first round of air frying, let the fries cool for a few minutes, then return them to the Kalorik Air Fryer or another 5 minutes at 400°F (200°C) for extra crispiness.
Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy your Crispy Air Fryer Fast Food-Style French Fries on National French Fry Day July 13th or any day you're craving a delicious snack!
Remember to be good and share the joy with your fellow French Fry Lovers.
