Air Fryer French Fries
Hi Everyone, these fries are more healthy than your traditional fried French fry recipe because they use just 1 tablespoon of Canola oil and are cooked in an air fryer versus being fried in oil.
I LOVE French fries but I don’t like that they are usually fried in oil which makes them unhealthy.
Having an air fryer makes making French fries not only healthy but it’s easy and they taste great.
French fries are actually one of the most popular recipes to make in an air fryer.
