Yield 2-4 1x


  • 2 medium-large russet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon oregano


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400ºF for around 5 minutes.
  2. Slice potatoes into fries (about ½-inch thick) and place them into a large bowl filled with water. 
  3. In a second bowl, pour in about half the oil. In a third medium-large bowl combine parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and oregano.  Set aside.
  4. Working in batches, remove about ⅓ of fries from water and pat dry with a tea towel or paper towel. Place the fries in the bowl with oil, sprinkle with salt, and toss to coat.  
  5. Then, transfer the fries in a single layer in the fryer basket, so that they are not touching.
  6. Air fry at 400ºF for 10 minutes. Flip fries over and cook another 6-7 minutes.
  7. Remove fries from the fryer and place them into the bowl with parmesan cheese and spices. Toss to coat. Place fries on plate or parchment paper.
  8. Repeat until all fries are cooked and coated.

Tips & Notes

  • Soaking the fries in water removes the extra starch and helps keep fries from sticking to each other.
  • It is not necessary to grease the basket since the fries are already coated in oil.
  • Air fryer used was 4 liters and fries were made in 3 batches.
  • Fries are best served immediately but can be reheated at a low temperature in the air fryer.
