If you’re a fan of crispy and delicious French fries, you know that frozen fries are a convenient and easy way to enjoy them any time. And with the Ninja Foodi air fryer, you can make frozen French fries that are as good as any you can buy in a restaurant. In this article, we’ll show you how to air fry frozen French fries in your Ninja Foodi, and answer some frequently asked questions about air frying.
Preparing Your Frozen French Fries
Before you begin air frying your frozen French fries, it’s important to properly prepare them. If your fries are too thick, they may not cook evenly. If they’re too thin, they may overcook and become too crispy or burnt.
Here’s what you’ll need to do to prepare your frozen French fries for air frying in the Ninja Foodi:
1. Preheat your Ninja Foodi to 400°F for 5 minutes.
2. Spread your frozen French fries in a single layer on the air fryer basket.
3. Lightly spray your French fries with cooking spray to help them crisp up a bit more. You can use any type of cooking spray, but we recommend a neutral oil spray like canola or olive oil.
4. Add any seasonings you like, such as salt, garlic powder, or paprika. Toss your fries gently to coat them evenly.
Air Frying Your Frozen French Fries
Once you’ve prepared your frozen French fries, it’s time to air fry them. Here’s how:
1. Place the air fryer basket with the frozen fries inside the Ninja Foodi and close the air fryer lid.
2. Set the timer for 10 minutes.
3. After 5 minutes, open the air fryer lid and shake the basket to ensure that the fries are cooking evenly. You can also flip the fries to help them cook evenly.
4. Close the air fryer lid and continue cooking for the remaining 5 minutes.
5. After the timer goes off, check your fries for doneness. They should be golden brown and crispy on the outside, and tender on the inside. If they’re not quite done, cook for an additional 2-5 minutes.
