I love to cook this potato preparation skin on. I love the added texture and taste the potato skin gives the finished wedge – it’s like a plateful of mini baked potato bites!
I find one medium/large potato can be cut into about six wedges. The wedges should be a little larger than a typical French fry. If you like you can add a variety of seasonings to the wedges during the last two minutes of cooking. Smoked paprika and garlic are my favorite!
Note: I use Rubbermaid plastic food prep containers for the oil coating/shaking bit, they’re really handy in a lot of different air fryer recipes. See our air fryer accessories page here.
