Air Fryer Potato Wedges are here my friends. Did we need another reason to eat our beloved potatoes?
Absolutely I say because these potatoes are super crispy, simply made, and completely Whole30 and paleo-friendly.
Break out your favorite air fryers friends, it's time to make some roasted potatoes in the air fryer!
I can't tell you how many people message me on Instagram asking if the air fryer is something they should get. I'm going to make a bold statement here - but besides baking, I'd opt for the air fryer over my oven any day!
What makes me love my air fryer? Let me count the ways:
- Easy clean up - One pot to clean gets a huge thumbs up from me!
- You can't beat the crisp - I can't replicate the air fryer crisp in my oven, no matter how hard I try!
- Healthier than deep frying - with a fraction of the oil, you get the "fried" texture without a ton of oil.
- So much flavor - I've found the air fryer gives my food a really delicious flavor - and adding in my favorite spices definitely helps 🙂
