Why you will love this Air Fryer Recipe!

Potato side dishes never fail – Tried and true, there is no turning down a potato wedge! Some families may struggle to get the kids to try veggies even when wonderful, like air fryer carrot fries and air fryer bacon-wrapped asparagus.

But not the popular potato! If you want a meal that leaves nothing behind, this potato recipe is for you

Air fryer wedges keep the mess down – Unlike traditional pan-fried oil recipes or deep frying, the air fryer keeps the oil and mess confined to easy clean up.

No spattering on your arms, no big thick wasteful inches of oil- use whatever air fryer you have to create thick addictive wedges. 

Ingredients:

  • russet potatoes
  • olive oil
  • seasonings we prefer – paprika, dried parsley, chili powder, salt, and ground black pepper
  • ranch dressing or ketchup for serving
  • Optional – mix up the seasonings with other great flavors like Italian seasonings, garlic powder, onion powder, or even a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.

How to make Air Fryer Potato Wedges.

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees for 5 minutes.
  2. Wash potatoes and cut them in half.
  3. Cut the potato wedges – Cut each half into half again and those halves in half, so you have four slices. Repeat with the other half. Each potato will yield eight wedges. It’s important to note that if you miscut the wedges, leaving one thicker and one thinner, the cooking times may alter.

Do Crispy Potato wedges make good leftovers? 

Can they be reheated – yes.

Should you reheat them? It’s a personal preference.

Several types of food deserve immediate eating, and seasoned wedges are one of those. You can microwave, oven warm, or air fryer again to warm, but nothing will beat just making one batch at a time.

Potato types that are Best for Wedges

We use Russet potatoes for any fry or wedge-related recipes. They crisp up and give that outside golden brown color that most people are used to.

Any potato can technically make a fry or roasted potatoes wedge, but not all will have the same texture or properties.

As a home cook, I do always encourage you to try out new things and use up ingredients already in your household.

If I have a bag of baby reds or golds, I will use those up before heading to the store. 

Dips!

I am convinced that most people enjoy wedges and fries specifically for their favorite sauce. And dip recipes are our favorite too! 

Potato wedges were made for cucumber dip, greek yogurt dip, dill dip, copycat Canes sauce, copycat chick-fil-a sauce, and, of course, the best ranch dip recipe ever.

There really are so many delicious recipes that feature the potato! 

We love this sweet potato cobbler recipe, fancy fondant potatoes, mashed potato casserole, our favorite southern potato salad recipe, and, as always, ninja foodi baked potatoes
