A healthier easier version of deep-fried potatoes, these delicious Crispy Seasoned Potato Wedges are crispy that tasty even with very little oil. The air fryer uses a constant flow of hot air to quickly and evenly cook food without the use of excessive fat. In some cases, a tiny spritz of oil helps to ensure maximum crispness but it’s generally not necessary. All you really need is quality ingredients and desired spices.

Russet potatoes– Russets make more firm and crisp wedges than other potatoes. However, gold potatoes are very tasty and will crisp up Mickey as well.
All-purpose seasoning– You should definitely make a batch of my All-Purpose Seasoning Blend. It’s great for all sorts of dishes like my Pan-Seared Chicken Breast and roasted vegetables. Otherwise, you can purchase a brand such as McCormick (affiliate link).
