  • kosher salt to taste
  • black pepper freshly ground, to taste


  • Prheat your air-fryer to 360°.
  • Meanwhile, sliced the potatoes into 1/4-inch slices and then cut each slice into 1/4-inch strips.
  • In a large bowl, add the potoates "fries" and spray with olive oil until coated evenly. Toss with a few pinches kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Use tongs to arrange the potates in the bottom of your air-fryers basket.
  • Air-fry for 9 minutes, shake the basket and rearrange the potatoes in a single layer*. Continue air-frying for 6 to 9 minutes more. You may need to work in 2 separate batches.
  • Transfer the crispy fries to a wire rack set before repeating. Note: The smaller fries might be done after the first 9 minutes or halfway through the second set of 9 minutes. Check often to avoid burning.
  • Once all the fries are brown, throw them back into the air fryer and reheat for 1 to 2 minutes.
