This step-by-step guide will show you how to air fry frozen french fries.

It’s healthier, as you hardly use any oil and takes just 15 minutes to cook them from your freezer to the air fryer.

Why you should give air fryer frozen fries a try.

  • Yes, you can deep fry your frozen fries, I’ve been doing it for years but once you’ve cooked a bag of frozen fries in an air fryer, you’ll never go back to deep frying them.
  • It’s healthy, just imagine a full bag of frozen fries needing only teaspoons of oil(depending on the type of frozen fries you are using). if they are regular french fries then you don’t need oil at all.
  • No more standing over a stove top to check on the oil heat or burning the fries. when you make the frozen fries in an air fryer, you set the time, go about your work, when the bell dings you take them out and serve.
  • Zero cleaning up or using multiple plates or kitchen paper towels to soak in excess oil, once done, you only have the air fryer basket to clean.
  • Movie night french fry snacking is just a matter adding the frozen fries into the air fryer basket and setting the time.

Beginner’s tips to make air fryer frozen fries

  1. There are so many different types of air fryers out there, depending on the size and wattage, the cooking time will change a couple of minutes.
    For this reason, I always reccomend a trial run with less of the ingredients. this would help you to learn how long to air fry.
  2. There are different types of frozen fries as well, thinner than french fries or chunky wedges.
    the timing to cook will change accordingly by a few minutes. as mentioned above drop a few fries into the air fryer and take it on a trial run.
  3. Only season with salt after you fry them for best result.
  4. Avoid overcrowding the air fryer basket but fill the basket in a single layer for an even fry.
  5. As recommended in the recipe instruction shake the basket in between cooking time.
  6. Just remember the longer you cook the crispier the fries will get but if you air fry them too long, they will turn out dry. I would not reccomend going over 15-16 minutes unless the frozen fries are really chunky.
