How to Make Frozen French Fries in the Air Fryer
What You’ll Need
To make frozen french fries in the air fryer, you will need an air fryer, frozen french fries, and oil or cooking spray.
Preparing the French Fries
Before you begin, make sure to preheat your air fryer. Depending on the type of air fryer you have, this should take anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes. Once it’s preheated, you can begin prepping your french fries.
If your frozen french fries come in a bag, make sure to read the instructions on the back before you begin. Most frozen fries will need to be thawed before they can be cooked in the air fryer. If your fries need to be thawed, you can do so by placing them in a bowl of warm water or microwaving them for a few minutes.
Once your fries are thawed, place them in the air fryer basket. Be sure not to crowd the basket, as this can cause the fries to cook unevenly. If your air fryer has a temperature setting, make sure to set it to 375°F.
Cooking the French Fries
Once your fries are in the fryer, spray them with oil or cooking spray. This will help to ensure they get crispy and golden brown. Depending on the type and size of your fries, you may need to cook them for anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes.
For best results, it’s important to check on the fries every few minutes to make sure they are cooking evenly. If the fries seem to be getting too dark, you can reduce the temperature or move them to the top of the basket.
Serving the Fries
Once your fries are cooked to your desired level of crispiness, it’s time to serve them. You can serve them as is or with your favorite condiments. Enjoy!
