How to make Ore-Ida crinkle cut fries in the air fryer

Ore-Ida Golden Crinkles French Fried Potatoes
  1. Preheat air fryer
  2. Empty half a bag of fries into air fryer
  3. Keep fries to a single later as best as possible
  4. Set temperature to 400F and set timer for 10 minutes
  5. Shake basket every 3 minutes

The above guidelines should result in decently cooked and slightly crisp fries. If you like a slightly softer fry, you should aim for around 8-10 minutes cooking time. Extra crisp fries will need about 15 minutes. I like to shake the fries every 2-3 minutes to ensure even cooking, especially if I’ve added more than a single layer to the fryer.

Most importantly – you don’t need to add any oil or oil spray to these fries at all. The fries have plenty of oil right out of the bag.

Here’s the results of the above fifteen minutes cooking time and about half a bag of the Ore-Ida fries:

And once you have a plate of golden and crisp French fries, there’s only one course if action in my book – load em up! Here’s an example topped with MorningStar Farms grillers crumbleres (seasoned in Tajinn), home made pico de gallo, diced and seasoned avocado and a little home made salsa too!

In the above dish, I’ve used one of my favorite seasonings to bring the fries to live. I use a liberal sprinkling of Tajin on the fries adding a citrusy/spicy/salty blast. It’s almost like adding malt vinegar with kick, but without making the fries soggy. Well – until you load them up with home made beef chili like I have above!

Or…for my veggie fries, another idea – MorningStar beef crumbles for a meat free loaded fry. I’ve then added home made pico, home made guac and home made restaurant style salsa.

  1. The insides are to mushy, I have tried different times in the air fryer to minimize this problem with negative results. Is there a secret to getting the inside done or is this just the way the fries are made to be?
    Thanks

    1. Thats definitely a feature of the product I’d say. If you’ve ended up with a piping hot fry, with steam erupting, it’s done. I do agree the interior is quite soft, I actually like this in this fry, but I can see how that reformed potato texture might not be for some.
