Air Fryer Fries. Welcome to our list of all of our top air fryer fries recipes. Air Fryer French Fries, vegetable fries, fruit fries and loaded French Fries for everyone that loves fries in the air fryer and is on the lookout for new and original recipe ideas.
Air Fryer Fries is my number #1 reason for buying an air fryer. Yes, I know it does a lot more than that, but that was what originally attracted me to the hot air cooking technology that Philips had built.
Plus, anyone that knows me and reads the blog regularly will know that I am addicted to cooking fries in the air fryer, just by the number of recipes I have made that have involved fries!
If I was to name one comfort food that I would like to eat forever and ever for all eternity it would be fries.
I remember when I was growing up and used to eat out. The fries were always such a crucial part of the meal.
My mum and dad would go out and leave me some money for dinner. You would find me ordering from one of 3 places:
- The Chippy = I would always have chips, scraps and onion gravy
- The Chinese = I would always have chips, sweet and sour sauce and some prawn crackers.
- The Pizza Takeaway = I would always have a cheese pizza, chips and onion rings.
Clearly, I had a chip problem!
My dad is just as bad for them. I remember endless times that he complained if the Indian restaurant he was visiting didn’t do chips. It would end in an argument with him telling the waiter, why if you have potatoes on the menu you can’t make me chips???
But I used to always be aware of the calories and how bad they were for me. That’s why the air fryer was the gadget of my dreams.
The Air Fryer Of My Dreams
But before I dive in with all of my delicious air fryer fries recipes I wanted to share with you the details of the air fryer that we currently own.
We have the Philips Airfryer XL. In my opinion it is the best air fryer out of all the ones I have tried and its perfect for couples and for families. Due to its size it means that you won’t have an overcrowding problem when you make air fryer French fries and that you can cook lots of them at once!
It’s not the cheapest Air Fryer but it’s a case of you get what you pay for. Its quality and it will last you a long time. Our first lasted us over 5 years and we only replaced it because the basket broke and we wanted to try out the latest version.
Top Air Fryer Fries Recipes
I have asked my readers what their favourite is out of our Air Fryer Fries and looked at those shared on social media, to bring you an ultimate air fryer fries list.
This was our original air fryer fries recipe and was based upon the old previous Philips air fryer that we owned. It was the first model and showed that even with their first attempt at air fryers you could still have delicious French Fries.
If you love sweet potatoes, then you will love these sweet potato fries. They are low in calorie and perfect for if you are on Paleo or the Whole30 and are still craving your fries.
If you want to go back to childhood and enjoy some delicious crinkle cut chips, then start with these ones. I love to make them like this for the kids, but us adults love the quirky look of them too.
Another favourite of mine is to make air fryer curly fries. Just as fun as the crinkle cut chips and reminds me a lot of pub grub. Its also much better to make them at home for you and your kids, rather than buying them from the freezer section. Even better, if you follow Paleo and your kids hate you for it, then this is your compromise.
If your kids refuse to eat their vegetables, then air fry them and pass them off as yummy French Fries. I love the combo of some of my favourite root vegetables and often make air fryer courgette, sweet potato and carrot fries. But its all about personal preference.
I love pumpkin fries the most out of all vegetable fries I have ever made in the air fryer. This is because pumpkin holds water making it perfect for air frying without oil or with very little oil. Plus, pumpkins can be so cheap to buy and then slice them up as and when you need them.
I love my fruit and fresh pineapple is one of my all-time favourites. Sliced up and with a honey glaze and I am in food heaven. Lightly air fry them and they make a spectacular air fryer fries method.
I love loaded fries in the air fryer and let’s start with some sloppy joes. Of course, there is some yummy melted cheese involved too. They are loaded up and make the perfect dinner for families.
For those of you that want pizza but are on a diet and don’t want that unhealthy pizza base, then you need to try out our pizza chips. The chips are the pizza base and then add all your favourite pizza toppings over it.
I love my chips to have loads of melted cheese on top. They really create the heavenly comfort food moment. These are the best and you only need a small amount of cheese and bacon to complete the recipe.
If you’re on a calorie-controlled diet, then we recommend that you give these oil free French Fries a go. A little soaking and then a couple of shakes while in the air fryer and you have a delicious recipe for oil free French fries.
If you want air fryer French fries that taste like they have come out of a 5-star restaurant then the perfect ones to cook are these five guys Cajun French fries. They taste so good that you will be putting them on your family menu every week.
These are the easiest way to cook air fryer French Fries and perfect for if you are tired and would normally ring for a takeaway. You leave the skin on and then just chip them into French Fries shapes. Then they are shook in a small amount of oil for the best results.
