What to Serve with Ninja Foodi Fries
How Long to Cook French Fries in the Ninja Foodi
We want the fries to be super crispy on the outside and hot and fluffy on the inside.
If you cut them into ¼-inch rectangles, they should cook in 25-30 minutes in the Ninja Foodi.
I recommend checking on them around the 25 minute mark and then checking every minute until they’re cooked just the way you want them.
Tips for Making the Ninja Foodi Air Fryer French Fries
- Use russet (baking) potatoes for the fries. They are high in starch, which makes them great for Ninja Foodi French fries.
- Try to cut the potatoes into even rectangles. Slicing all of the potatoes to the same size will help them cook evenly. A fry cutter is a great tool here!
- After draining the potatoes, dry them as thoroughly as possible. By removing the excess moisture, this helps them crisp up beautifully. If there’s too much moisture, the potatoes will steam instead.
- Shake the basket every 10-15 minutes to help the fries cook evenly.
- Add extra salt right when they come out of the Ninja Foodi for a true restaurant-quality batch of fries!
- For an extra burst of flavor, feel free to add a little French fry seasoning right before serving.
