How to Make Air Fryer Potato Wedges
- Clean and slice – Clean your potatoes and slice them into wedges. Dry them off and lay them on a baking sheet.

- Cook – Lay them evenly spaced apart in the air fryer. Cook at 400 degrees for 19 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
Tips and Variations
- Storage – Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to a week. Store in an airtight container, in the freezer, for up to 3 months.
- Reheating – Reheat using the air fryer, oven, or microwave.
- Use other seasonings – If the Italian seasoning doesn’t match the meal you’re needing to serve these potato wedges with, use something else. There’s no rule that says you have to stick with Italian seasoning. Some other great seasoning mixtures would be Greek, Cajun, Mexican, etc.
- Use fresh herbs – Fresh cut herbs have a much stronger flavor than their dried counterpart. For a fresher and even more vibrant taste, use fresh herbs as your seasoning.
- Serve them with dipping sauce – Potato wedges go really well with all your classic dipping sauces. Great options are ranch, BBQ sauce, buffalo sauce, etc.
- Slice them by hand – If you don’t have an apple slicer, you’re just fine to slice them by hand. Just simply match the motions an apple slicer would use to make your own wedges. Of course, you don’t have to make them perfect. Each wedge will be different and that’s perfectly ok.
Common Asked Questions About Air Fryer Potato Wedges
- Are Potato Wedges Healthier Than Fries? The health properties really come down to how they are cooked. If the fries were fried in oil then yes, my air fried potato wedges are much healthier. However, both can be either fried in oil or air fried. Therefore, it comes down to the fact that both potato wedges and fries are just potatoes with different cuts. So, both have the same exact health factors. The only way to make them any healthier is to choose to air fry them or bake them without oil.
- Why Do My Potato Wedges Stick? Potatoes contain a lot of starch. If you soak and rinse the potatoes after slicing them, you can prevent them from sticking. The water soaks up and removes starch from the potatoes. In this recipe we spray it with some non-stick cooking spray. Any fat or oil will help to prevent your wedges from sticking. However, for the healthiest route, I just use non-stick spray.
