  • 2 large russet potatoes scrubbed (skin on) or peeled
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons seasoning salt like Lawry’s


  • Slice the potatoes into wedges lengthwise and place them in a large bowl. Cover the potatoes with cold water and allow to soak for 20 minutes.
  • Drain and rinse the potatoes with cold water. Pat them dry with paper towels, then return them to the bowl.
  • Return them to a large dry mixing bowl. Toss the potatoes with vegetable oil and seasoning salt.
  • Preheat the air fryer if recommended by your brand.
  • Spoon the potatoes into the airy fryer basket. NOTE: depending on the basket size they may need to be done in two batches.
  • Cook at 400 degrees for 18 minutes, tossing halfway through the cook time. Allow to cool a few minutes until they are safe to handle before eating.
  • Serve as is or with ketchup or a dipping sauce.


If your air fryer only goes to 390 degrees lengthen the cooking time by a few minutes. Check for doneness and cook until the fries are cooked through with crisp exterior.
If your air fryer will cook food well in multiple layers there is no need to only cook a single layer.  If not cook the potato wedges in multiple batches.
