The air fryer is the perfect healthier way for cooking some frozen French fries fast.

Air Fryer Frozen French Fries

French fries are cut potatoes that are typically deep-fried. However, for this recipe, we will cook them in the air fryer. The air fryer is a much healthier option as you can use a lot less oil.

Within twenty minutes, you will have some beautifully cooked French fries. They cook to be deliciously crunchy and go great with some delicious sauces.

You should be able to feed roughly four to six people with a single batch of fries. You can easily adjust the recipe if you need to feed fewer people. Be careful not to overload the air fryer as it may impact the quality of the cook.

Serving Ideas for French Fries

Fries always go great with some delicious condiments. For example, fries match nicely with ketchup, mayonnaise, tomato sauce, vinegar, or even BBQ sauce.

These fries go perfectly with our air-fried chicken thighs or chicken breasts. Both of our chicken recipes are coated in a wonderful seasoning that helps lock in moisture and adds a ton of flavor.

Air Fried French Fries

Our air-fried pork chops will go perfectly with these French Fries. The pork is coated in a delicious seasoning and cooks beautifully in the air fryer. If you have a bit of spare time, then a homemade salad is also an excellent addition.

French fries are the perfect match for a delicious homemade burger. You can cook the patties in the air fryer, but I recommend doing it separately from the fries. My favorite burger is a delicious beef patty, lettuce, tomato, red onion, cheese, and bacon.

Cooked French Fries from out of the Air Fryer

If you live in Australia, you can cook plenty of comfort food in the air fryer. Chiko rolls, dim sims, or even spring rolls are the perfect match for these delicious fries.

My last suggestion is to make some chili cheese fries with these French Fries. Chili cheese fries are extremely easy to make and usually consist of good chili, fries, and cheese. It is comfort food, so I would not make it every day, but it is unbelievably delicious.
