Trader Joes Frozen Handsome Cut Potato Fries in the Air Fryer
For best results in most air fryers less than 6 qt., we suggest cooking just half a bag of the potato fries at a time. They will cook more evenly. For best results cook in just a single layer and no more than 2 layers deep.
Place the frozen fries in air fryer basket and spread them evenly over the basket. If you have a large air fryer, you can cook a whole bag at a time. Otherwise just cook a half a bag per batch for best results. A single layer is best and two layers deep is about the max you should do. You don't need thaw them first or to spray any extra oil.
Air fry the frozen fries at 400°F/205°C for about 12-17 minutes. About halfway through cooking, shake the basket and gently turn the fries. Try not to break them. For crisper, evenly cooked fries, turn them multiples times while cooking.
If needed, Air Fry for additional 1-3 minutes to crisp to your preferred liking. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
No Oil Necessary. Cook Fries Frozen - Do not thaw first.
Shake several times for even cooking & Don’t overcrowd fryer basket.
If cooking in multiple batches, the first batch will take longer to cook if Air Fryer is not already pre-heated.
Recipes were cooked in 3-4 qt air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, the recipe might cook quicker so adjust cooking time.
Remember to set a timer to shake/flip/toss the food as directed in recipe.
