Crispy Air-Fryer French Fries
“Get crispy, crunchy fries with much less oil than deep frying requires with these air-fried spuds. For the best texture, keep each fry as evenly sized as possible. Try a mandoline to make quick work of equal fries if your knife work could use some help.”
2 (6 ounce) russet baking potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon cornstarch
½ teaspoon coarsely cracked black pepper
⅜ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon paprika
1Scrub potatoes well. Cut the unpeeled potatoes lengthwise into ⅜-inch sticks. Place in a large bowl; cover with water and let stand for 30 minutes. Drain well and pat very dry. Return to the dried bowl; add oil and toss to coat. Sprinkle with cornstarch, pepper, salt and paprika; toss to coat.
2Coat the basket of an air fryer with cooking spray. Place the potatoes in the basket and coat the potatoes well with cooking spray. Fry at 360°F, stirring every 5 minutes, until very crispy, 25 to 30 minutes.
