These Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Fries are perfectly cooked in the air fryer for the best crispy fries. Flavored with garlic and Parmesan cheese these are the perfect side dish.
Potatoes have so many versatile uses, finding more recipes to make in my air fryer is really not that hard. My Air Fryer is one of my favorite kitchen tools and I use it for a lot of my side dishes with dinner. I have a few Air Fryer recipes with potatoes like my Air Fryer Red Potatoes or my Air Fryer Ranch Potatoes, so these Air Fryer Fries are a perfect addition to the blog.
How to make Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Fries:
Most of my Air Fryer recipes are made pretty quickly. Due to the nature of making these fries it does take a little bit longer. Slice and prepare your potatoes and then soak them. Pat them dry and then prepare your air fryer. Season your fries and then add them to the air fryer. Bake and when done, while still hot toss them in your shredded Parmesan Cheese.
- Russet Potatoes - leave the skins on.
- Olive Oil
- Garlic Powder - for a stronger garlic flavor use a minced garlic clove.
- Onion Powder
- Parmesan Cheese - shredded.
Step One: Preheat air fryer to 400 F according to manufacturer instructions.
- Cooking Tip: To preheat an air fryer turn it on and set the timer for 5 minutes.
- Cooking Tip: If you cut the fries too thin, they will char pretty quickly in the fryer.
- Cooking Tip: Using the oil will help make the fries crispier. Extra oil in the air fryer bottom will help make them crispy as well.
- Cooking Tip: For crispier fries allow them to cook for the full 15 minutes.
What should you serve with French Fries:
French Fries are the perfect side dish for burgers, hot dogs, or even steak. They can also be eaten as a snack! Serve some of these dipping sauces with your fries.
- Ketchup - the most popular dipping sauce for French Fries.
- Ranch - a classic dip for French Fries.
- Sour Cream - a more mild dip, but it goes well with these fries.
How to reheat Air Fryer French Fries:
Typically, fried food doesn't reheat well. With an air fryer you an reheat them once if they get cold. Reheat in the air fryer at 400 F for about 3-5 minutes.
