Super simple ingredients. Just a bag of frozen wedges, a bit of olive oil if you like, and a pinch or two of salt!
- Frozen Potato Wedges - Any brand will do. Sometimes when I'm looking for potato wedges, my options are limited. 🙁
- Olive Oil - Optional, but adding a little bit prior to air frying will yield crispier potato wedges!
- Seasoning - Also optional as additional seasoning typically isn't necessary. Most frozen products come with seasoning, but I always add a bit of extra salt to taste.
🔪 Step-by-Step Instructions
This is one of those air fryer recipes that I do recommend preheating your air fryer before making. The extra few minutes of warming up will help to get your potato wedges crispier, faster!
- Preheat. Set your air fryer to 400°F (204°C) and grab your potato wedges.
- Toss with oil and seasoning (optional). In a small bowl toss the wedges with the 1 teaspoon each of olive oil and salt.
- Air fry. Put the basket with wedges in your air fryer and cook at 400°F (204°C).
- Flip and finish. Open and flip the potato wedges about 5 minutes in and return to the air fryer for 3 to 5 minutes, for a total of 8-10 minutes or until wedges are golden and crispy.
- Serve. Remove from the air fryer, add any additional seasoning, and serve.
💭 Tips & Recipe Notes
- Be sure to flip your potato wedges halfway through the cooking time.
- Try to not crowd the basket, that way the wedges come out nice and crispy.
- Have some leftovers? When cool just place them in a zip lock bag or airtight storage container then store them in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
- Reheat leftover potato wedges in the air fryer at 400°F (204°C) for 3 to 4 minutes!
- You can air fry a larger batch of potato wedges at once, but it is best to finish them in smaller batches so that you get that crispy finish!
