Recipe Tips/Substitutions

Making frozen wedges using the air fryer is pretty simple – but here are some recipe tips and considerations to note:

  • Most pre-packaged frozen wedges have enough oil in the outer coating to get crispy. If you want yours extra crispy, you can always add a little bit more oil to the frozen wedges before tossing them in the air fryer.
  • Most pre-packed frozen wedges also have seasoning on them but you can always add more (like seasoning salt) after they are done cooking if desired.
  • If you want to make lots of frozen wedges, be sure not to overcrowd the air fryer tray. The less room the wedges have, the less crispy they might turn out. We use a 6-quart capacity air fryer and it cooks one pound of frozen wedges nicely.
  • Even though frozen wedges in the air fryer make for easy cleanup, be sure to clean the air fryer tray after it cools. This will help keep your air fryer in top condition for next time!

We use this air fryer for our recipes and it has been great.

Turn on your air fryer and preheat it to 385 degrees Fahrenheit.

If you want your frozen potato wedges to have a little extra crisp, you can place them into a mixing bowl and add one teaspoon of oil. Mix the wedges around until they are coated evenly. However, this step is completely optional.

Once your air fryer is heated up, add the frozen potato wedges onto the tray in one even layer. The wedges shouldn’t overlap much – this way they can cook evenly and get crispier than if the air fryer was overcrowded.

Cook the wedges until crispy.

Cook the frozen potato wedges for a total of 8-9 minutes or until they are the right level of crispy for you.

Shake/flip the cooking wedges halfway through so that they get a chance to evenly cook on all sides. Since every air fryer is different, your total cooking time might vary a bit.

When they are hot through the middle and crispy on the outside, remove the wedges from the air fryer tray and place them in a bowl.

If you have unflavored wedges you can shake on your favorite seasoning salt or just normal table salt.

Serve the potato wedges with a dipping sauce like ketchup or chipotle mayo. Enjoy!

Storage Tips

Of all the different kinds of frozen foods you can make in the air fryer, frozen potato wedges are one of the few that can be enjoyed cold and/or the next day without too much of an issue. We know because we do that often.

Simply place any leftover cooked wedges into a sealed container and store them in the fridge. You can reheat them in the microwave, the air fryer, or eat them cold (like we did).

What to Serve Air Fryer Frozen Potato Wedges With

Air-fried frozen potato wedges are a great snack on their own. Just serve them with your preferred dry seasoning and/or dip – like ketchup or chipotle mayo.

Frozen potato wedges also make a great potato side dish to other air fried goodies like frozen chicken nuggets, frozen fish sticks, air fryer chicken breast, and other meat dishes – like hamburgers.
