Why Air Fry?
There is just something powerful about fries that defy the typical shape. A regular French fry is just straight forward and average, but a waffle or curly fry? Bring it on! That’s why we love these air fryer frozen curly fries!
Ready in only minutes and boasting the same texture as the deep fried variety, these healthier fries will be the perfect sidekick to burgers, chicken tenders, or even your favorite grilled protein. Plus, they’re curly, which means you and your kiddos will enjoy every bite.
And the options are endless. At most local markets, there are so many varieties of curly fries, you’ll have a difficult time choosing. At our local grocery, we found regular curly fries, zesty curly fries, sweet potato curly fries, and zesty sweet potato curly fries. Because we like our food with that special something extra, we chose the zesty sweet potato curly fries, and they didn’t disappoint!
Regardless of the variety, these delicious curly fries will go from frozen to fantastic in about 10 minutes at a temperature of 400. It is important to note, however, that the cook time will be longer and the result less even if you put too many fries in the air fryer at once. We used half a bag, which was more than enough for our family of three, but if cooking for more than four, you’ll want to cook an entire bag in two batches.
Frozen fries, whether curly, waffled, steak, or French cut, are great sides for those hectic weeknight dinners.
