We serve fries frequently because they are such and easy side. It’s no surprise that my favorite method of cooking waffle fries is in the air fryer. They cook FAST, and I just can’t get that crispy result from baking them.

We love to serve them with our Chick Fil A Nuggets and Chick Fil A Sauce for a complete take out dinner at home!

Side dishes are a must, some of our favorites are Macaroni and Cheese with Shells, Instant Pot Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Zesty Italian Pasta Salad, and Cowboy Corn Dip.

How To Make Waffle Fries In The Air Fryer

Step 1: Add waffle fries

Sprinkle waffle fries into the air fryer in a single layer. Allow some space between them, so the air can flow.

Step 2: Add oil

Spray lightly with your favorite cooking oil. We use olive oil. You can skip this step if you’d rather.

FAQs

Can you make other fries in the air fryer?

Yep! Feel free to cook any frozen fries you have on hand in the air fryer. They may take a little longer, depending on the thickness of the fries.

Is it okay to use non-stick cooking spray?

It’s best to use olive oil or avocado oil that you can spritz from a spray bottle. Non-stick spray can cake up and will cause damage to your air fryer after continued use.

Can you save leftovers?

Yes! Chill leftover fries in a sealed container for up to 3 days. Reheat in the air fryer at 400 degrees for 5-6 minutes or until they are hot.
