Grab 2 russet potatoes and your air fryer, and get ready to make some delicious, crispy air fryer french fries to munch on with your favorite meal!
Scrub potato skins well, to remove any dirt. Slice potatoes lengthwise into 1/2" slices, then cut each slice into fry sized "sticks". Place raw potatoes into a large bowl, cover with water, and let them soak for 30 minutes (this removes a lot of starch). After 30 minutes, drain water , then give potatoes a rinse. Pat potatoes dry with paper towels.
Preheat air fryer to 380°F. Place dry potatoes into a large bowl. Drizzle with 2 Tablespoons oil. Gently toss to coat, and then season with salt/pepper, and stir to combine. **Add any additional seasonings you want (garlic powder, seasoning salt, etc.). Once the air fryer has preheated, place seasoned fries in basket of air fryer, in a single layer, for best results.
Cook at 380°F for 5 minutes. Pause machine, and give fries a good shake. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, and then shake once again or move them around a bit using tongs, keeping them in a single layer after each "shake". Because air fryers tend to have temperature variances, set the timer and cook for 3-4 more minutes. Check to see if they've reached your desired crispness. If not, pop 'em back in for a couple more minutes. By that time they should be done (final cooking time will also depend on the thickness of your fries!). Taste, and add more salt/pepper, if desired. Remove, and serve with your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy!
