Air Fryer Pepper Parmesan Fries

Air Fryer French Fries

If you own an air fryer, there’s no doubt that you’ve made french fries at some point… and if you haven’t, what are you waiting for?! Whether is be frozen, store-bought or potatoes you’ve cut up yourself, an air fryer makes the best, crispiest fries you’ll ever have… with very little oil.

Our family has become french fry fans!

You all know I’m a HUGE Instant Pot enthusiast but my Ninja Air Fryer is my go-to for fast and crisp. I’ve made sweet potato fries, polenta fries and even zucchini fries but everyone’s No.1 favourite is by far the Pepper Parmesan Fries. The rich, slightly spicy pepper melds well with a sharp parmesan, which makes them a great accompaniment to roasts and other grilled or baked meats.

I like to use La Grille, Spicy Pepper Medley as my seasoning and the Starfrit Fry Cutter to make perfectly shaped and even fries.

A little bit of spice and a whole lot of flavour in these quick and easy Air Fryer fries.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Course Side Dish, Snack
Servings 4


  • Air Fryer


  • 4-5 Large Potatoes (Any type you have on hand. I personally like yellow.)
  • 3 tbsp Avocado Oil
  • 4 tbsp La Grille, Spicy Pepper Medley
  • 5 tbsp Parmesan Cheese (Finely grated)


  • Peel potatoes and cut into fries, either by hand or using a fry cutter, and place in a large bowl. I typically like to leave the skin on but for this recipe I remove it becasue the pepper-parmasen mix gives it a nice colour.
  • Pre-heat your Air Fryer for 3 minutes at 400C
  • While the Air Fryer is pre-heating, toss the Oil, Pepper and Cheese with the fries
  • Once Air Fryer is ready, add in the fries and cook at 400C for 20mins. Toss every 5-7mins to ensure they brown evenly.
  • Transfer fries to a large bowl or plate, sprinkle with some grated parmesan and serve!
