Why air fry potato wedges work

I am utterly obsessed with my Instant Pot Air Fryer (if you need one they offer FREE Shipping!)! It gets the job done in as little as 15 minutes of cook time and there is hardly any clean-up! The results are incredible with a tender soft center and crispy golden exterior!

It’s all about healthy choices. Air fry potato wedges have zero trans fats that you would find with fried foods. Trans fats occur when the oil is cooked at high temperatures that take them to the point of becoming unhealthy. Olive oil does not contain any trans fats to begin with and since the air fryer cooks foods at a lower temperature, oxidation is less likely to occur. Oxidation is when the oil breaks down and can turn into a chemical. Chemicals are a no-no when comes to that healthy bod!

What are the best potatoes for french fries and wedges

Any potatoes work for homemade french fries and potato wedges such as russet potatoes, golden Yukon potatoes, or red potatoes. I use Yukon potatoes as they have less starchy carbs as russet potatoes.

What ingredients go into these fries

potatoes, garlic, salt, black pepper, Instant Vortex air fryer
  • Medium to large size potatoes: russet, Yukon potatoes or red potatoes
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • pink salt, black pepper, garlic powder
