For most of my air fryer recipes, I use the Philips HD9630 Air Fryer. It’s larger than most air fryers and I also love the white color and the design. It also doesn’t become an eyesore while sitting on your countertop.
To Make Potato Wedges in The Air Fryer Follow These Steps
STEP#1: Slice the Potato
I love this recipe because it only takes 1 russet potato to make 2 servings. I also like to keep the potato skin on, because I find it protects the potato and keeps them crispy on the outside but soft and fluffy on the inside.
Then cut each half of your potato into quarters.
And then cut each potato quarter into 1/4″ slices.
STEP#2: Toss with Oil and Seasoning
Place your potato wedges into a bowl and spray them lightly with olive oil. I find these olive oil spray cans are great for air frying because they just dust the food with oil, as opposed to a drizzle, which can drench your food with too much oil for air frying.
Most Air fryers do not require any oil, but I can’t help giving certain things like potato wedges and chicken tenders a little spritz.
Toss your potato wedges with salt and pepper to taste and freshly minced rosemary.
STEP#3: Air Fry
Lay the potato wedges in the air fryer basket in a single layer, and set the air fryer for 350F (175C).
How Long to Cook Potato Wedges in the Air Fryer?
The best way to cook potato wedges in the air fryer is low and slow. Meaning a lower temper, for a longer amount of time. I go 17 minutes at 350F, opening the air fryer mid-way through to give them a shake.
I find this creates a potato wedge that isn’t too browned before the insides are fully cooked. That’s the balance, crispy exterior with a fluffy interior.
STEP#4: Make Smokey Ketchup
You could serve these with regular ketchup, but the smoky ketchup just kicks it up a notch! And it’s so simple to make!
Just add some store-bought ketchup to a bowl, and tap in some smoked paprika. Whisk together and voila, smoky ketchup!
STEP#5: Garnish and Serve
For a finishing touch, I like to add some flakey sea salt on top.
