  • 1 lb russet potato(s)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • to taste salt and pepper


Prep Instructions

  • Spiralize each potato. Use kitchen shears or scissors to cut the potato "noodles" into shorter pieces. This doesn't need to be precise. This just prevents you from having one incredibly long fry!
  • Transfer the potato to a large bowl. Fill with cold water and let sit for an hour. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP.
  • Drain the water and dry the potatoes on clean tea towels or paper towels. If you don't remove the excess moisture, they fries will not crisp up.
  • Toss the now mostly dry potatoes with the olive oil, salt and pepper. See the main blog post for additional seasoning inspiration!

Air Fryer Instructions

  • Pre heat your air fryer to 375°F.
  • Add the spiralized potatoes to the basket or trays (depending on your model)
  • Set the time to 20 minutes. Give the basket or trays a shake at 10 minutes. If you are using the tray style, swap the trays at 10 minutes as well.
  • At 20 minutes, check the crispiness of your curly fries. You may want to add a few more minutes, but at this point keep a close eye. Since these fries are so thin, they could quickly burn.
  • Serve right away while they are still warm and ultra crispy!
