Spraying just a little oil on your air fryer french fries is all it takes to get crispy french fries in about 15 minutes.

Do you love french fries?

Try making delicious homemade french fries in the air fryer! They are super easy to put together and taste so YUMMY. I added Parmesan cheese and garlic to these fries, but you can serve them with salt and pepper or any other seasonings you prefer!

Soak the potatoes to soften them before placing them in the air fryer.

Fries were one of the first ideas I tried making in the air fryer, and they did not disappoint. Making easy side dishes like fries and potatoes are one of my favorite uses for the air fryer. They require very little oil and come out of the basket with AMAZING taste and texture!

Tossed with Parmesan cheese and herbs, these air fryer french fries look as good as they taste.

Garlic Parmesan Air Fryer French Fries

Toss these EASY homemade air fryer french fries in some garlic and Parmesan cheese for a delicious snack or side dish.

Serves: 4

Cook Time: 18 minutes



  • 2 russet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped


  • Step 1:

    Slice potatoes into thin pieces, and place into water for about 30 minutes to make them tender.

  • Step 2:

    Drain water and pat dry.

  • Step 3:

    Coat with olive oil and salt & pepper to taste. (I use a cooking oil mister.)

  • Step 4:

    Place in air fryer basket and set to 400 degrees for about 16 minutes, or until golden brown.

  • Step 5:

    Shake basket and mist again halfway through cook time. If not crisp or brown enough, add a couple more minutes of cook time until desired crispness.

  • Step 6:

    Toss with garlic, Parmesan cheese, and chopped parsley.

Additional Notes

Recipe adapted from

Serve your french fries with ketchup, fry sauce, or ranch dressing.

They are that GOOD.

Also worth noting, if you don’t want to cut up fresh potatoes, cook frozen fries in your air fryer! The result is just as YUM – and super simple.

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account.

To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!
