Big fries, skinny fries, I like ALL fries! While these skinny fries won't make you skinny, they do a better job of keeping you that way than their deep-fried version.

  • 3 russet potatoes peeled and cut into 1/4-inch sticks
  • 2 teaspoons olive or vegetable oil
  • salt
  1. Cut the potatoes into ¼-inch strips. A mandolin with a julienne blade is really helpful here.
  2. Rinse the potatoes with cold water several times an let them soak in cold water for at least 10 minutes or as long as overnight.
  3. Pre-heat the air fryer to 380ºF.
  4. Drain and dry the potato sticks really well, using a clean kitchen towel. Toss the fries with the oil in a bowl and then air fry in two batches at 380ºF for 15 minutes, shaking the basket a couple of times during the cooking time.
  5. Add the first batch of French fries back into the air fryer basket with the finishing batch and let everything warm through for a few minutes. As soon as the fries are done, season them with salt and transfer them to a plate. Serve with ketchup or your favorite dip.
