So Crisp And Tasty The Flavor Will Amaze You
Nothing could be easier than these yummy air fryer potato wedges. They are a perfect side to almost any main dish. We are potato people, so when I find a better, faster way to make them, I’m all in.
Air fryer potato wedges are somewhere between a baked potato and a steak fry. They are crisp outside like a fry, and the inside is a little like the inside of a baked. They are delicious dippers, whether you like ketchup, ranch, or a yummy sauce like Freddy’s Fry Sauce, one of our favorites.
The fluffy interior soaks up and holds your favorite condiments. More is more in this case, right?
Just Three Ingredients To Make Air Fryer Potato Wedges
I’m a huge fan of Russet potatoes. They are a starchy or “floury” type of all-purpose potato. After 50 years of marriage to Papa, potato lover extraordinaire, I thought I knew everything there is to know about potatoes. Still, “floury” is relatively new potato terminology for me.
What does that mean? Floury potatoes are low in water content; most of their sugar has been converted to starch by harvest. This characteristic means they will have a dry, fluffy, cooked texture accentuated by baking and mashing. Floury potatoes also fry well; low sugar levels mean less excessive browning.
I was looking for the shortest possible shortcut when I tried making air fryer potato wedges, so I grabbed my little bottle of Alessi dipping spices. This delicious sea salt and spices blend has everything you need to create tasty potato wedges in one handy little grinder. You can add any additional seasonings you want, of course.
Allow about one six to eight-ounce potato per person. Begin by scrubbing them thoroughly and drying them with terrycloth or other absorbent cloth. Cut each potato into eight wedges, then pat them dry so the olive oil sticks to each wedge better.
Put the olive oil in a shallow dish and turn the wedges until all sides are coated, then sprinkle them generously with the dipping spices. You could add some grated Parmesan or Romano cheese if you like.
Now put the potato wedges into the air fryer basket. Try not to crowd them so they cook faster. Cook them at 400 degrees for about twelve to fifteen minutes, then shake the basket and cook until you can pierce the potato easily with the tip of a knife. Add time if you like until you achieve your ideal crispy brown exterior!
The air fryer creates a magical tornado of hot air that crisps up the potato skin to absolute perfection. The air fryer potato wedges come out with a golden, crispy exterior and a fluffy, cloud-like interior.
Air fryers are the ultimate multitasking tool Minimal fuss, maximum flavor: Air fryers are lazy (or busy!) cooks best friends. Just pop those spuds in, set the temperature and timer, and let the air fryer do its thing. No babysitting is required! Plus, the hot air circulation ensures that every bite is packed with flavor.
