Air Fryer French Fries are tasty, crispy fries are the perfect side dish for a family meal.
You know those Air Fryer Hamburgers I shared with you recently, well they are going to need a side dish to go with them. And the favorite side to any burger is French fries. Air Fryer French Fries to be exact. Oh yeah.
For a while there I was buying frozen french fries and I would then crisp them up in the oven. Well that process stopped the moment I tried Air Fryer French Fries. I am not even kidding. These fries will make you a believer in home made fries.
My mom used to make my family homemade fries all the time when I was growing up. The fries were fried in a saucepan and I loved them so much. I’d go watch her making them and grab a few along the way so she always had to make a double batch because we all loved them so much. This air fried version reminded me of her homemade fries.
These are not as crispy as you would get in a fryer version unless you let them cook for longer in the air fryer, almost to the point of over cooking them. But I like them a little soft too so cool them longer if you want them even more crispy.
