  • 16 oz bag of Frozen French Fries organic, Non-GMO preferred
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil or cooking spray


  • Using a paper towel, spread the olive oil around the air fryer basket, or lightly spray the basket with cooking spray. I prefer using olive oil spray. You don't need a lot, just a light layer.
  • Fill the basket with french fries. Don't overcrowd the basket. You don't need to place them in the air fryer in a single layer the way you do with many other air fryer recipes, but you also don't want to cram them in there. A few overlapping fries is okay, but keeping them as close to a single layer will allow the air to circulate and crisp the fries perfectly on all sides.
  • Set Air Fryer temperature to 400 F. Depending on the thickness of your fries you will need to vary the cooking time.
    Shoestring Fries: 10-15 minutes, tossing halfway.
    Crinkle Fries: 15 minutes, tossing halfway.
    Waffle Fries: 15 minutes, tossing halfway.



Tips for Making Air Fryer Frozen French Fries
  • Don't overcrowd the basket.
  • Spray a light amount of olive oil cooking spray to the basket before adding fries.
  • Adjust cooking time based on the thickness of your fries. Shoestring will need less time than crinkle fries.
