homemade chips in the new air fryer

Instead of deep-frying, you can make fresh chips (French fries) in an air fryer, which makes the potatoes crispy and golden brown with much less oil.

How to make them:

  1. Two large potatoes, scrubbed clean (Russet or Yukon Gold);
  2. 1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  3. Add salt to taste
  4. Add garlic powder, pepper, and chopped Parmesan cheese if you want to.

How to Do It:

Step 1: Get the potatoes ready.

  • Peel and cut potatoes: You can cut the potatoes into thin strips or pieces that are about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
    Soak (not required): To get rid of extra starch, soak the potato slices in cold water for 30 minutes. This helps the fries get more crunchy.
  • Dry Completely: Once the potatoes are drained, use paper towels to wipe them dry to get rid of any extra water.

Step 2: Put on coat and season

  • Toss potatoes with: Toss the dried potato slices with olive oil in a bowl until they are well covered. Add salt and any other spices you want, like garlic powder, pepper, or chopped Parmesan cheese.

Step 3: Fry the chips in the air.

  • Warm Up the Air Fryer: Warm up your air fryer for about 5 minutes at 380°F (193°C).
  • Cook in Groups: In the air fryer basket, put out the potato slices in a single layer. Do not put too many things in the air fryer at once; based on its size, you may need to cook in batches.
  • Air Fry: Toast the food for 15 to 20 minutes at 380°F (193°C), shaking the basket every so often. Keep cooking the chips until they are crispy and golden brown.
    To serve, take the chips out of the air fryer and, if you want, cover them with more salt.
  • Serve them hot with your favorite sauce to dip them in, or eat them off the grill.

How to Make the Best Air Fryer Chips:

  • Type of Potato: For crispy chips, rooster potatoes work well. For a different feel, use Yukon Gold or red potatoes.
    Making Sure They Cook Evenly: Cut the potato slices evenly so that they cook evenly.
  • Oil Amount: You can change how much olive oil you use based on your own taste. If you use less oil, the chips will be a little less crispy.
  • Options for Seasoning: Try using different spices, like chili powder, oregano, or smoked paprika, to get different tastes.
  • Dips: You can serve this with ketchup, pesto, ranch dressing, or your other favorite dip.
  • Storage: For the crispiest chips, eat them right away. If you have extras, put them in a container that won’t let air in and heat them up in the air fryer to make them crispy again.
  • It’s quick and easy to make your own chips in an air fryer. They’re a healthy snack or side dish that will definitely please!
