Air Fryer Potato Wedges Recipe


Air fryer potato wedges are a healthier alternative to traditional fried potatoes, offering the same crispy texture without the excess oil.

Selecting the Potatoes

Choose russet or Yukon Gold potatoes for the best results. These varieties have a higher starch content, resulting in crispier wedges.

Preparing the Potatoes

Scrub the potatoes clean and pat them dry. Cut each potato into wedges of uniform size to ensure even cooking.


Toss the potato wedges with olive oil and your favorite seasonings. Common choices include salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and dried herbs.

Preheating the Air Fryer

Preheat your air fryer to ensure the potatoes cook evenly and develop a golden-brown crust.


Arrange the seasoned potato wedges in a single layer in the air fryer basket, making sure not to overcrowd them.


Cook the potato wedges in the air fryer at 400°F (200°C) for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through the cooking time for even browning.

Checking for Doneness

Check the potato wedges for doneness by piercing them with a fork. They should be golden brown and tender on the inside.


Serve the crispy potato wedges hot with your favorite dipping sauces, such as ketchup, aioli, or barbecue sauce.
