Air Fryer French Fries Recipe Ideas

Welcome to our list of all of our top air fryer fries recipes. Originally published in the summer of 2018, we have updated it with even more of our favourite air fryer French fries recipes and to answer many of the questions our air fryer community ask us.

Air Fryer French 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 involves 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.

Best Air Fryer For Fries?

There is no secret of the fact, that us at Recipe This are big fans of the Philips Air Fryer.

It was the first air fryer we bought and is also air fryer 1, 3 and 4 out of 5 air fryers that we have owned.

The air fryer that we consider to be the best for making air fryer French fries is the Philips Air Fryer XL.

Once you make French fries in the Philips air fryer, there is no going back.

But not everybody can afford the Philips Air Fryer as it does carry a high price tag.

Cheaper options include buying a Philips air fryer on ebay or getting the cheaper brand cosori. I recommend you read our cosori air fryer review before buying.

  1. Hi Samantha, I absolutely love to hear your stories and all about your country etc. And of course I enjoy your recipes and want to thank you for all that you do to share with all of us, what a blessing you are. My husband’s Mother was 100% Hungarian and exceptionally perfectionist at cooking and let you know her ways. I learned how to make her Chicken Paprikosh, but feel it is good, but just not like her making it. Miss her terribly. I have an air fryer and the Instant Pot and they are my two most favorite appliances in my kitchen. And I LOVE fries, therefore loving the air fryer. Thank you again my dear for sharing your life with us and your cooking talents! Many hugs. Claudia
