Homemade Air Fryer cottage fries are what I dream about on a regular basis. They are a lot different from your basic steak fry or waffle fry. They are circular cuts of potato that get baked or fried and offer that perfect tender and crunchy aspect a fry should have. I made these cottage fries in our Air Fryer. It gives you that deep fried taste and texture but using air to cook it instead of oil. A lot healthier version, but it doesn’t lack in flavor. Serve with your favorite dish or dip in a fry sauce, the choice is yours.
Homemade Air Fryer Cottage Fries
These Homemade Air Fryer Cottage Fries are no different. The other night I decided to make burgers and I always make my burgers from scratch and I decided that I wanted to make fries from scratch but I didn’t want just any fry I want something with a little added flavor. I pulled out my Air fryer and sliced away some thin circular pieces of potato. Then a little sprinkle of garlic and parmesan cheese and into the Air Fryer they went. They turned out perfect, and I sprinkled with just a little salt at the end, for that perfect salty component that makes fries awesome.
Cottage fries get under-rated and a lot of times forgotten. Curly, steak, shoestring, those are the fries you see a ton. But cottage fries get left behind. Why? I am not sure, because every single time we make these, the entire family devours them. Generally, I have to make a few batches because as soon as the kids get a whiff of them cooking, they come running. These cottage fries are a homemade treat to help compliment any main dish. Whether it be a nice meatloaf, juicy burger, or even a chicken dish! These potato round fries are the bomb dot com.
These Homemade Air Fryer Cottage Fries were some of the best fries that I have ever eaten.
Tip For Keeping Cottage Fries From Sticking In Air Fryer
What I like to do is take some olive oil spray and just lightly spray the Air Fryer before I put potatoes down. Then in between flipping, I spray it so that the basket gets nice and coated and won’t cause the potatoes to stick and then get torn up during the cooking process. It works great and offers a hint of that oily taste and texture to the potatoes.
I have used my Air fryer so much it has become an asset in my kitchen. I love to toss in store-bought items like mozzerella sticks, chicken tenders, and more. But, the part I love the most is I can make homemade items like baked avocado eggs for breakfast, or my famous lemon air fryer pound cake that everyone loves. You can make desserts, main dishes, sides and more in your Air Fryer. I use it almost equally to my Instant Pot!
