Crispy Seasoned Counrty Fries made in Air Fryer

I am so blessed to have so many good friends and family members, who have always inspired me to try new recipes and  continue posting on my  blog,  except I just lost my biggest mom..  yes....I just lost her last month...she used to look forward to my new recipes on my blog and would open my FB page and go over my newly posted recipes.... Yes I lost my biggest inspiration. I miss her so very much...
While I was feeling down, especially on Mother's day which fell exactly one month after her demise.... One of my good friend were talking about air fryers and she inspired me to look in to getting one...which  at first I was not too keen on getting, when I looked at the traditional ones available in the market.  Then she told me to look in to Cuisinart Air fryer with Toaster oven..I looked at it and was contemplating on whether to buy it or not.  My husband went on line and ordered it and on the night of Mother's day and we picked it up.
I did not feel like opening or trying anything...again this good friend of mine kept on poking me to try it.. so  I thought let me make the easiest thing which does not require too much mess of batter or anything...The Fries..and my husband loves French fries.. so it is only fair that I make these for him using this new gadget.
So I followed my recipe for the country seasoned fries that I usually make,  but minus all the oil for frying... I must admit they came out pretty good and without any guilt of eating.
  • 4 medium size potatoes
  • 1 1/2 Table spoon of Olive oil or any vegetable oil
  • 1 tables spoon of corn starch
  • 1/4 cup of taco seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon of siracha seasoning (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt or to taste

  • Wash the potatoes.
  • Cut them in to desired thickness of fries with skin (you can peel the skin off if you like)
  • Transfer them in a glass bowl.
  • Add corn starch, oil, taco seasoning, siracha seasoning, and salt.
  • Toss the fries so everyone of them is covered with seasoning
  • Microwave these cut seasoned fries, covered on high power for 8 min in the glass bowl.
  • Line the Air fryer basket with parchment paper.
  • Spread the seasoned fries on it in single layer.
  • Place the basket on baking/drip tray and position these on position "2" described in the manual. This is the higher rack.

  • Set the temp at 400 F.
  • Airfry the fries for total of 8 min.
  • After 5 min, slide the tray out and turn the fries over if needed.  
  • Slide the tray back and bake for additional 3 min or until desired crispiness.
  • Serve them hot with Ketchup or Chili sauce or with any of your favorite condiment.
I highly recommend this air fryer vs all the air fryers on the market, which only serve as air fryer, this one is build in to toaster oven and convection oven.
It has a rectangular flat basket vs all the other one has round small one.
It has an oven light so you can see your item cooking to desired crispiness and don't get burnt.
The power to oven turns off when you open the oven door and comes back on when you close the oven door.
And no Cuisinart did not pay me to post this recipe or their praises about this toaster oven with fryer.
Enjoy !!

Special Thanks to Nita G. for the inspiration to get me back to posting on my blog again.
