HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO COOK FROZEN Waffle FRIES IN AN AIR FRYER?

Each air fryer will be slightly different, but on average it only takes about 13 minutes to get crispy fries at 400F/204C. If you like your fries extra crispy, you can cook longer, but check for any potential burning by minute 10.

PRO TIPS/RECIPE NOTES

  • There is no need to preheat the air fryer. 
  • If you have a smaller air fryer, you may need to cook your fries in batches. It’s still faster than the oven!
  • Cook from frozen – do not thaw the fries before baking.
  • Do shake the fries after about 10 minutes to avoid burn spots.
  • You do not need to spray any oil on the fries; they will cook perfectly without it.
  • Throw in a few whole garlic cloves for a delicious take on this Air Fryer Roasted Garlic. Top with some shredded Parm for a homemade version of stadium waffle fries.
