Air Fryer Potato Wedges – make perfectly crispy potato wedges that are perfectly season with very little oil in just minutes using your air fryer!

I have become kind of obsessed with making things crispy in my air fryer. It is so good for Air Fryer Chicken Wings and things you would often have to deep fry to get so crispy and delicious.

I love that you can use just a tiny bit of oil, so things are so much better for you than they traditionally would be as well.

Have you made Oven Roasted Potato Wedges before? They are an easy side dish that goes with just about anything. But I find they can be a little hard to get evenly crispy without a lot of oil. Not to mention they can take 35-40 minutes to get completely cooked.

Well the air fryer wins again and makes those same potato wedges in less time, with less oil, and so much crispier. And crispier in my book means more delicious!

How To Cut Potatoes Into Wedges

Potato Wedges are very easy to cut. Start by cutting your potato in half length wise. Then place the potato cut side down on the cutting board, and cut down the middle length wise again. Continue this process until you get the wedge size you like. I usually end up with 8 wedges per potato.

You could also use an apple slicer if you wanted to make things easier. Make sure it is nice and sharp though, so you can cut through the entire potato.

What Potato To Use For Wedges

Russet potatoes are the best when you are trying to make crispy potatoes. They have enough starch in them that they crisp up easily and very nicely.

How To Make Potato Wedges In Air Fryer

  1. Cut your potatoes into wedges and place them in a bowl.
  2. Drizzle oil over the potatoes and sprinkle with the seasoning.
  3. Toss them well so everything is evenly coated.
  4. Place them in a single layer in your air fryer.
  5. Cook at 400º for 15 minutes. Flip the potatoes and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from the air fryer and serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

We are partial to Canes Sauce or just ketchup in our house.

Are Air Fried Potatoes Healthy

Yes they are. You are adding 1 tablespoon of oil to the entire recipe, which is really not very much. And you could even use avocado oil or spray if you wanted to as well. Either way you aren’t adding much extra to them to get them crispy.

If you were making these in a skillet you would use significantly more oil and deep frying is another story all together. So yes, feel good about making potatoes in your air fryer and serving them to your family.

The beauty of making this at home, is you can season them however you like. A friend made these with Herbs de Provence for us and they became our new favorite. But you could use seasoned salt, a mix of garlic powder and paprika. Really whatever spices you like work well on this air fryer potato wedge recipe.

What To Serve Potato Wedges With

To make this recipe I used a Cosori 5.8 Qt Air Fryer. It is big enough that you can fit plenty of food in, and the basket comes out so you can easily shake, stir, or flip whatever you are making.
