Are you looking to reduce fat but still enjoy the delicious and crispy flavor of deep-fried foods? Then you may want to invest in an air-fryer. This counter-top appliance uses super heated air to “fry” food with little to no oil. I know…amazing right? After reading all of the hype I decided to buy one, at a deeply reduced sale price, and try it out.  WARNING – the fried food this thing makes is  delicious…. and addictive.

One of the easiest and most popular dishes to make in an air fryer is Air Fryer French Fries. At least I think it is easy. Make these amazing fries yourself and then you be the judge.

Use a mandolin or sharp knife to cut russet potatoes into “french fry size” strips. About 1/4 in across. I don’t even bother peeling the potatoes. But that’s just how I roll.

Throw the cut potatoes into a bowl of cold water and allow them to soak for about an hour.  Drain the potatoes and dry on a kitchen towel. This will rinse out some of the starch and make crispier fries.

Put the fries into a large bowl, add oil and toss to coat the cut potatoes completely.  They should be very thinly coated. Toss the potatoes in batches into your air fryer, depending on the size of the basket, and set the dial for 10 minutes and 400 degrees. (Your air fryer settings may vary). After 10 minutes, take out the basket and shake it well. Return the basket to the fryer and cook for another 10 minutes until the potatoes are crispy.

Add salt to taste and serve the fries with your favorite dipping sauce. At our house we love a fry sauce that is simply a 1/2 cup of mayonnaise mixed with 2 tablespoons of Thai Chili Sauce.
