How To Cook Frozen French Fries In An Air Fryer

It doesn’t get any easier than this! No prep is needed except to preheat the Air Fryer, of course.

  1. Place frozen fries in a single layer in the fryer basket.
  2. Cook according to recipe below, or until the fries are at desired crispiness.

Tips For Success

  • For perfect fries every time, avoid overloading the fryer basket to allow air to circulate around the fries. Once they are done cooking, season with salt & pepper or any combination of seasonings you prefer!
  • To refresh leftover fries, place them on a baking sheet and pop them under the broiler for about 3 minutes to crisp them up again and they will be ready to serve again!
