Air Fryer Frozen Curly Fries is an update of my air fryer curly fries recipe that I originally published in the November of 2016. Back then we used a spiralizer and they were homemade. But we feel that with how good the air fryer is for air fryer frozen food it is better updated to use frozen curly fries rather than a spiralizer.

Air Fryer Frozen Curly Fries

I am a huge fan of French Fries and can never get enough of them. Though growing up they were never healthy, they never involved a fantastic kitchen gadget like an Air Fryer.

They were ALWAYS deep fried and tasted amazing.

I would go to the fish and chip shop (as it was cheaper than fast food establishments) and enjoy chips with scraps (It’s an English thing with the spare batter bites from the fish) and then there would be some onion gravy on top.

They were absolutely delicious and when I was growing up I could have them for just £1.20 including a bread bun and a little bottle of fizzy drink.

I used to also love using my parents’ commercial fat fryer. They would be out and about, and I would at home wanting something to eat.

There would always be a large potato in the bottom of the fridge, and I would peel it and make myself some delicious fries.

I would then have them with some tomato ketchup like most teenagers would.

But my BEST EVER fries moment was on holiday with my Dad in Belgium. You would visit a café there and it was always free refills on the fries.

Therefore, if you ate them all they would automatically come back and refill your chip basket with some more.

They would serve them with the most delicious and the biggest portion of homemade mayonnaise and I would be in food heaven.

But none of these were low calorie and they were as far away from healthy as I could get. When you grow up in the 90’s these traditions were starting to stop in the favour of frozen fries.

But that 90’s tradition was placing the frozen fries into the deep fat fryer and we’re talking a LOT of calories.

However, cook your frozen curly fries (or whatever fries you have) in the air fryer instead and there will be a lot less calorie guilt.

When I spotted some frozen curly fries in the supermarket freezer recently, I knew I had to try them out in the air fryer.

These are the EXACT frozen curly fries I found, and I totally forgot about them and they have been sat in our chest freezer for about 2 months and they are finally coming out today to say hello and say EAT ME.

Why Air Fryer Frozen Curly Fries?

For me it always feels like such an effort to make homemade air fryer curly fries. Firstly, you need a spiralizer that works, and you need to perfectly slice them into little curls.

However, the air fryer is perfect for cooking frozen curly fries instead. You simply throw your frozen curly fries into the air fryer and let the air fryer perform its magic.

How To Cook Frozen Curly Fries In The Air Fryer?

Air Fryer Frozen Curly Fries step by step

Cooking frozen curly fries in the air fryer is of course a dump and go air fryer frozen foods recipe. All you need to do is place your frozen curly fries into the air fryer basket and that is it.

All you must worry about is what sauce you’re going to dip in with your curly fries or if you want to add extra salt and pepper.

Because the frozen curly fries are already prepared for you, there is no oil to add.

The only consideration is that if you want crispy delicious curly fries via the air fryer, that it is important that you cook them on a high temperature for 12 minutes. Otherwise they will be cooked but they WILL NOT be crispy and will be horrible and soggy.
