Do you love french fries as much as we do? The greasy, irresistible American classic is the perfect partner in crime for a juicy burger or hot dog. Unfortunately, the craving fat bomb doesn’t have the best reputation for health, especially when ordered in fast food restaurants. Fortunately, you don’t have to compromise your healthy diet to enjoy crispy, hearty french fries! These must-have air fried french fries taste absolutely amazing without compromising your health goals. With all the flavor of restaurant style fries, this brilliant recipe will satisfy your taste buds without adding inches to your waistline.
A flat, stomach-friendly alternative
When it comes to lightening recipes without compromising the taste, it all boils down to the cooking method. Traditional french fries rely heavily on the deep-frying method, which requires tons of oil that can soak into the food while cooking.
So we threw the deep fryer overboard and put the air fryer in its place! There is hardly any oil used when frying in the air, which means the end result is less fat and calories than its more fatty counterpart. Using an air fryer still gives you the pampering fries you should dream of, but they won’t break your calorie bank!
