If you have ever made my Homemade Air Fryer Fries, Air Fryer Tater Tots or Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries, then you understand why I needed to throw potato wedges in there, too! These wedges are pretty easy to make. I love to load them up with seasonings! Pair them with an Air Fryer Cheeseburger or Air Fryer Breaded Chicken Wings!

How to Cook Fresh Cut Potato Wedges in an Air Fryer

  1. First, decide which type of potato you would like to use. I feel russet potatoes work best for potato wedges. Feel free to use what you want.
  2. Rinse and scrub the potatoes really well. I like to use this veggie wash from Amazon.
  3. Cut each potato in half lengthways, then cut the potato on the diagonal to make 8-10 wedges per potato. Try to make sure they are about the same thickness and size.
  4. Add the potatoes to a large bowl with hot water for 20-30 minutes. Pat dry.
  5. Add the olive oil and seasonings. Use tongs to properly coat.
  6. Air fry for 20-25 minutes.

How Long to Cook/Cook Time

I like to cook mine for 25 minutes. I recommend 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Air Fryer Temperature

I like to use 400 degrees.

Seasonings

I love to use Herbes de Provence, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Herbes de Provence are dry herbs that are frequently used in South of France, such as thyme, rosemary, oregano, etc. Check out this article, Inside the Spice Cabinet: Herbes de Provence.

Smoked paprika will give the potatoes a mild smoky flavor. You can learn more about it via this article, Inside the Spice Cabinet: Smoked Paprika.

And do not forget the salt and pepper! Russet potatoes are very bland. You really have to doctor them up, which is why salt is key. I prefer to use kosher salt.

How to Cook Sweet Potato Wedges

You can follow the same instructions for sweet potato wedges.

How to Cook from Frozen

Ingredients

  • 4 medium russet potatoes I went for the potatoes that were the flattest.
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon Herbes de Provence seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cooking oil spray (I used olive oil)

Instructions

  • Wash and scrub the potatoes really well. Cut each potato in half lengthways, then cut the potato on the diagonal to make 8-10 wedges per potato. Try to make sure they are about the same thickness and size.
  • Place the sliced potatoes in a large bowl with hot water. This will remove excess starch and help the potatoes crisp. Leave the potatoes in the hot water for 20-30 minutes.
  • Remove the potatoes from the water and dry them. I used paper towels.
  • Add the potatoes to a large, dry bowl. Drizzle the olive oil throughout and then add the seasonings. Toss with tongs to ensure the potatoes are evenly coated.
  • Spray the air fryer basket with cooking oil spray. Add the potato wedges to the basket. Do not overcrowd the basket and cook in batches if needed.
  • Cook for 12 minutes on 400 degrees.
  • Open the air fryer and flip the wedges with tongs. Cook for an additional 10-15 minutes. Mine were perfectly crisp around 25 minutes of total cook time.
  • Cool before serving.

Notes

Russet potatoes are naturally really bland. Be sure to season well with salt.
I topped my wedges with fresh parsley.

Seasoning was utterly PERFECT however, these potatoes did not cook through, even with me adding an extra 10 minutes for a total of a full 30 minutes at 400. I used small fresh potatoes, the wedges were on the small side and I still had trouble with firm, toothy insides. And they were starting to get burnt on the outside so I couldn't realy leave them in longer. I did pre-soak in hot water as per the recipe but should I parboil them next time? I really want these to work because they were delicious, but in the end I couldn't eat most of them as they were undercooked a bit.

What air fryer brand are you using? 30 minutes at 400 degrees is a long time for standard potatoes. I have never had to cook them that long. I would look into your air fryer. Par boiling should help. If you overcrowd the air fryer, they also will not cook at the appropriate temperature.

Such a simple and easy recipe! The seasoning was perfect. I took Brandi’s advice and tried to find a flatter potato, and it made cutting much easier!

I paired it with a recipe from a blogger Brandi has highlighted before and it was super yummy! My meal was done in less than a half hour. Perfect!

Made these today. Halved the potato amount but kept the same amount for seasonings. And used smoked paprika instead. Worked out really good. Toddler approved and all. Ha!!

Thank you! These were delicious! I was worried I would have problems with even cooking as I did not do a great job cutting them evenly! It wasn't a problem at all, I gave them a couple extra shakes near the end!

These were delish! I had red potatoes on hand so that’s what I used. We dipped in ranch. So good! Wondering about freezing...would you pat cook them before freezing or freeze raw? I’d love to cut up a big bag of potatoes for easy meals in the future!

I've never tried freezing them raw. You may want to test that out.
