Cook the Best Potato Wedges in your Philips Airfryer
The McDonalds chain have found and successfully marketed what chefs have known for a long time simple Potato wedges are a perfect side dish for so many menus. Who can resist wedges served up with several tasty dips and a nice thick steak, pork loin , juicy trout or white fish. Fortunately for those of us watching our wasteline, the Air Fryer method turns out really easy, perfect potato wedges. So what could be a better, calorie wise, taste wise meal than Sole, Loup or Cod together with Wedges.
Unlike McDonalds my recipe below makes spicy wedges NOT cooked in a deep fat fryer
The Philips Airfryer has a capacity of 0.8Kg , so the quantities are made to suit . If you have to make batches, keep the first batch in the regular oven just under 100′ C ( 212 ‘ F ) . You should have enough wedges for 3 to 4 servings in one go.
- 0,8 Kg potatoes, smallish in size leave the skins on
- Dried mixed Herbs (about 2 teaspoons) 10ml
- Paprika 10 ml
- Best Virgin Olive oil
- Plain Flour 30ml
- Salt n Pepper to season
Try to cut the potatoes into even pieces, the size is your choice but adjust cooking time upwards for bigger sizes so they cook thru.
Give the wedges a good rinse, leave to dry a few minutes then thoroughly dry on paper towels.
Brush the wedges with the Olive oil sparingly
Put the flour, herbs, spices , salt and pepper in a large poly bag, put in the coated wedges and thoroughly shake until all the mixture is used up.
Place in the Airfryer and set up for 40 minutes at 190 C
Once your potato wedges are well coated, take and place them into your low-fat electric Fryer. Then drizzle the remaining oil evenly over the wedges. Cook your wedges for approximately 35 to 40 minutes or until they are cooked.
Once the cooking process is finished add seasoning to taste. Serve the potato wedges whilst hot with a variety of dips
