We can all agree that potatoes is the best food out there. They can be made into chips, fries, baked potatoes, Fries, latkes, FRIES! As you can tell I really like fries. However, sometimes you can't just hop into the nearest McDonald's drive through. As I was scrolling TikTok, as one does, I found this delicious crispy potatoes recipe that I just had to try out. It was made by @franziee v and they are a great alternative to fries! I did put my own spin on this and changed the seasonings and instead of deep frying them, I air fried them (which makes them even healthier!). Another plus side to these potatoes is that you know exactly what's going into them! Are you 100% sure that McDonald's isn't adding some secret chemicals into your fries? Well, you can be positive that these potatoes don't have any! By the way, these are a great snack to share with two! Ok, enough rambling, it's time to make some crispy potatoes!
Step 1: Peel and wash three potatoes. I recommend peeling a little bit then rinsing the potato and then continuing peeling. For some reason, when I was peeling the potatoes and I did that, it made the process sooooo much easier for me.
Step 2: Chop off the ends. This makes the potatoes be more uniform in shape by the end.
Step 3: Cut 3 to 4 slices per potato. I preferred mine thicker so I did 3 slices.
Step 4: Cut vertically. But not all the way down! We don't want them to fall apart!
Step 5: Cut diagonally. Make sure you flip the potatoes AND don't cut all the way down! I made the mistake of not flipping for some of them and some of them fell apart.
Step 6: Preheat air fryer to 350 degrees/medium heat. You can also use a deep fryer or an oven.
Step 7: While it's preheating, make some sauce! You can use whichever sauce you like! I made mine with ketchup and mayonnaise. I also topped it with parsley.
Step 8: Once its done preheating, drizzle the air fryer with oil and put the potatoes in. Make sure none of the potatoes are overlapping.
Step 9: Cook for 15 - 30 minutes. I originally put it in for 15 minutes but it wasn't as crispy as I liked so I put it in for an extra 10 minutes. It's up to your personal preference.
Step 10: Once its done cooking drizzle with more oil and top with salt. The oil will allow the salt to stick on the potatoes.
Step 11: Put on a plate and top with parsley.
Step 12: Enjoy!
