  • Potato Peeler
  • Food Scale
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Air fryer
  • Ramekins


  • 1000 grams russet potatoes (approx 3 medium-sized potatoes) peeled and sliced into wedges
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley flakes


  • Peel and slice your russet potatoes into wedges (see tips above).
  • Place a large mixing bowl on the food scale and tare the scale (aka zero it out). Put your sliced potato wedges in the bowl and make note of the weight in grams. You’ll put this weight in the list of ingredients when creating your MyFitnessPal recipe.
  • Fill the bowl with enough cold water to cover the potatoes and add a couple handfuls of ice cubes. Let potatoes soak for at least 30 minutes before draining them and patting them dry.
  • Combine olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, and pepper in a large bowl, then add potato wedges and gently stir to coat evenly.
  • Add potato wedges to the air fryer basket, in batches if necessary to avoid overcrowding, and air fry at 400F for 15-20 minutes, or until desired crispness, shaking the basket every 5 minutes.
  • When the potato wedges are done, set a large bowl on the food scale and tare/zero out the scale. Put the wedges into the bowl, toss with dried parsley, and make note of the weight in grams. Enter this weight into the “Servings” field of your MyFitnessPal recipe.
  • Serve with ketchup, ranch, or dip of choice (see options above), and enjoy!


Macros for approximately 125g, or ⅕ of the recipe (dip not included): 167 cal/36c/2f/4p. These numbers will vary depending on how many grams of finished fries you end up with (directions step 6). The longer the potatoes cook, the more moisture they’ll lose in the cooking process, and the less they’ll weigh when done.
Add an 1/8 to 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese along with the parsley flakes at the end for added deliciousness!  This will change your macros, of course, but it tastes really good!
If the spices are too much for you or any of your family members, some Lawry's seasoned salt, generic fry seasoning, or plain ol' salt will work just fine!
