Do not thaw the wedges. Put them directly in the air fryer basket.
You can spray air fryer basket with oil and also frozen wedges. I generally do not do that as they already have oil.
Do not overload the basket. Make sure there is not much overlap. Also, shake the wedges or flip them midway for even cooking.
Avoid using parchment paper for wedges as they will hinder even cooking.
You can use any premixed spice mix or spices that you like to toss your wedges. Even plain salt tastes good.
Take 1 lb. or about 450 gm. of frozen potato wedges.
There is no need to thaw.
Preheat air fryer at 390F or 200C for about 5 minutes.
Cut the packet and lay potato wedges in air fryer basket in one layer or with minimal overlapping. This is to ensure that there is even cooking.
If you wish you can spray the air fryer basket and frozen wedges with oil.
I generally don’t do it because the frozen wedges already have enough oil in them.
Air fry for 8 to 10 minutes at 390F or 200C till the wedges are golden brown and crispy.
They will be cooked inside.
Don’t forget to shake the basket once or twice during the air frying time.
Serve hot as a side after tossing in the seasonings of your choice.
