💭 Top Tips and FAQ
How do I cut potatoes into wedges?
Slice each potato in half, then each half into 4 wedges (you basically slice in half 4 times over). You will get 8 wedges from each potato.
Should I peel the potatoes?
Traditionally, potato wedges are made with the peels intact. The skins get a bit crispy contributing to the crispiness of potato wedges. However, if you would rather forgo the peels, you most definitely can do so without any further adjustments to the recipe necessary.
What kind of potatoes should I use?
The beauty of this recipe is that it will work with any potatoes you have on hand. I have tested it with Russet, Yukon Gold and red, all with great results. As a personal preference, I prefer Yukon Gold, but they are all tasty!
Can I omit the oil?
Yes. If you are on a oil-free diet, simply omit the oil and instead use 2 tablespoons of water to help coat the wedges with spices.
Can I store and reheat these?
Yes. Keep leftover potato wedges stored in an airtight container or storage bag in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Air Fryer Potato Wedges are best served fresh, but can be reheated with favorable results. To reheat, coat or spray the wedges with a little oil, then pop into the air fryer at 400F for about 5 minutes, or until heated throughout.
