Crispy Air Fryer French Fries (Ninja Foodi Recipe)
Ingredients:– 4 large russet potatoes– 2 tablespoons olive oil– 1 teaspoon garlic powder– 1 teaspoon onion powder– 1 teaspoon paprika– Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions:1. Preheat the Ninja Foodi:Preheat your Ninja Foodi air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 5 minutes.
Prepare the Potatoes:– Wash and peel the potatoes. Cut them into evenly-sized fries, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch wide.– Place the cut potatoes in a large bowl of cold water for about 30 minutes. This helps remove excess starch and makes the fries crispier.
Dry the Potatoes:– Drain the potatoes and pat them completely dry with a paper towel.
Season the Fries:– In a large bowl, toss the dried fries with olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Ensure that the fries are evenly coated.
Air Frying:– Place the seasoned fries in the Ninja Foodi basket in a single layer, avoiding overcrowding. Cook in batches if necessary.
Air fry the fries at 400°F (200°C) for 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through to ensure even cooking. The cooking time may vary based on your air fryer model and the thickness of the fries.
Check for Crispiness:– After about 15 minutes, check the fries for crispiness. If needed, continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes or until the fries reach your desired level of crispiness.
Serve Immediately:– Once the fries are golden brown and crispy, remove them from the air fryer and let them rest for a minute before serving.
