Hi guys , I'm Justin from cooking with quit .
I specialize in clean comfort , cooking .
And today I'm gonna show you how to make these super delicious and very fast air fryer potato edges .
And if you love this video , don't forget to hit those like and subscribe buttons .
Let's get started .
If you've seen any of my other air fryer videos , then you know how much I love this machine .
It has saved me so much time and it makes food so crispy and delicious .
These air fryer potato wedges are the perfect thing to cook in there .
And best of all , they only take 10 minutes to make .
First thing we're gonna do is peel our rest of potatoes .
Now we're gonna cut our potatoes into wedges .
I do one slice to cut it in half and then I angle my blade and make my first wedge about there .
My second wedge about here and then I just take the last thick piece and just cut it in half for my 3rd and 4th wedges .
And that should give you a fairly equal wedge size and shape .
That is actually quite important that you keep them consistent .
So that they cook evenly and kind of all around the same time .
Uh in the air fryer , I've heard that some people like to soak their potatoes in an ice bath um , before they put them , put them into the air fryer and that makes them crispier .
I don't feel like you really need to do that in the air fryer because it does such a good job of making pretty much anything you put into it crispy .
But please let me know in the comments below if you've tried the ice bath technique and if you really believe in it , next thing we're gonna do is toss these potatoes into a bowl and then we're gonna season them .
I'm using uh paprika garlic powder , salt and pepper and of course , I'm gonna coat them with a little bit of olive oil to start .
So for the measurement of olive oil , I'd say just about a tablespoon should work .
And then this is something that I feel like is a really important step .
I like to mix up the potato wedges as they are in the olive oil first .
So that it gives all the seasoning something really nice to stick to , to give these a nice quick toss .
Oh Flying out .
Now , with everything perfectly coated , I'm going to add the seasoning .
So first we're gonna do the paprika .
This is just gonna be about a teaspoon , but I'm not going to measure you don't , you can measure if you want to , but it's totally fine to do it by feel .
Then I'm gonna add my garlic powder again .
Teaspoon should be totally fine .
I like a little more garlic , uh , on my potato edges totally up to you .
And the last two things we're gonna do the salt and pepper , just a couple of big pinches of salt and we're gonna add a little bit of pepper to it .
These potato edges cooking in the air fryer are just like they're just so fast .
Um And I feel like , you know , when you're cooking potatoes in the oven or if you're boiling them , it just takes so long .
So I just love this air fryer shortcut .
We're gonna give it one last little toss trying to make sure everything is nicely coated and now we're gonna pop these wedges into the air fryer .
You don't have to be too worried about keeping them from overlapping a little bit .
Um If they do overlap , that's totally fine .
There's more than enough heat in here to make them crispy .
So let me show you guys how they should look .
There you go .
And now we're gonna pop in the air fryer .
So we are gonna cook them at 400 degrees for 10 minutes .
Some people will say , oh you should um preheat your air fryer .
I've never understood that .
I don't think you need to .
It's such a small and really hot oven in here that I think that's kind of useless .
So we're gonna set it for 400 degrees at 10 minutes and then let it do its thing .
Um , at the five minute mark that's halfway , we're gonna remove the basket and just give it a little bit of shake and then pop it back in there to finish them .
We've hit the five minute mark .
So let's take them out and give them a little shake , just toss them up a little bit and then we're gonna pop them back in to finish the five minute time , right ?
10 minutes is up .
Let's take a look and see how we did .
Whoa , those look so good .
But , but , but here's the thing guys , um they are not crispy enough for me .
They might be crispy enough for some people , but I want extra crispy potatoes .
So I'm going to pop them back in for just another two minutes at 400 degrees .
All right , I think they are ready to go now .
Oh , yes , there we go .
There we go .
Super crispy .
That's what we're looking for .
Look so good .
Let me just throw them on this plate and I'm gonna show you how I finish them off .
Look at how crispy and delicious these are and I know you can't smell these , but they smell amazing .
I love to top these potato wedges off with a Sprinkle of sea salt .
So let's do that first go .
And also a little Sprinkle of parsley .
All right .
And of course , you gotta get a little doll of ketchup .
Let's put it right in this corner here .
That was the ketchup .
It wasn't me .
Why does that make me laugh ?
And I'm 40 years old and I'm still laughing at like hard jokes anyway .
All right .
Let's give them a try .
These look so delicious .
I cannot wait to try them .
But you know what's coming before I do .
