One of my favorite things to make in my air fryer is fries. Whether they are classic sweet potato fries, Japanese sweet potato fries, steak fries, or just classic fries using russet potatoes like this recipe. Fries in the air fryer are the best for so many options. First, they come out so crispy! Also, they are a bit of a healthier option because you don’t have to use as much oil. And finally because they come a lot quicker compared to an oven option. Click here for my air fryer that I use almost daily!
