Air Fryer Frozen Waffle Fries

We have certainly made homemade fries air fryer style before with real potatoes. Those are amazing for sure and if you haven’t tried that I suggest you do. When you don’t have a lot of time though this is second best. Frozen French fries make the best pair with a burger for dinner.

Love fish and chips? You can make that too with a few frozen fish sticks laid on the top, or cook separately if you want them crispier and for a larger batch.

Alexia Fries Air Fryer

There are a few brands out there. Most of the time I will say that the store brand is very close to brand name, except for these. As you can see this style is already seasoned so you really don’t need to salt at the end. Just pair with ketchup and Freddy’s fry sauce for a quick snack or as an easy side dish.

How long does it take to cook waffle fries in an air fryer?

Depending on how many ounces you cook at a time it should take 8-10 minutes. You want to start at a bit lower temperature to thaw them just a bit and then increase to 400 and crisp as much as you’d like. Thicker varieties may need a minute or two longer than others.

How do you make waffle fries in Ninja Foodi?

You would use the same directions below as you would for a Cosori air fryer or any other brand. Use the attached air crisp lid to make these. The basket is a bit smaller so you may need to cook 1/2 of a bag at a time vs. the whole thing.

Some directions call for 400 degrees F for the whole time, I think they get too hard and the inside is no longer tender this way. Starting out a bit lower is ideal. Normally I suggest that you put into a single layer only but when it comes to these and air fryer tater tots it’s just fine as long as you shake the basket every couple of minutes.

How do you cook frozen waffle fries?

There are directions on the back to bake in the oven, that takes quite a while longer. Honestly I don’t think they even get as crispy that way either. Deep frying is another option but the least healthy method since they will soak up a bit of oil in the process. Adds fat and extra calories that way. This is how you air fry them below.

  • You just need a bag of frozen fries
  • If you want to add salt at the end I suggest sea salt

No spray is needed unless you want to help the salt to stick at the end you could use a bit of olive oil spray. If they are already seasoned with Lawry’s seasoned salt like you see here then they are ready from the get go.

  • Preheat air fryer to 390 for 5 minutes. Pour bag of frozen waffle fries into basket.
  • Close air fryer basket and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Open basket shake contents to rotate food and then increase temperature to 400 for an additional 3-5 minutes or until they are as delicious and crispy as you’d like them to be.

Divide up air fried waffle fries and have a few favorite dipping sauces available to pair them with.
