Air Fryer Parmesan Truffle Fries

When my husband and I go out on a date, we always order truffle fries. They’re just the perfect combination of crispy and flavorful, and we can’t get enough of them.

My family asks for them every night – they’re so good!

Why don’t my fries get crispy in the air fryer?

The trick to getting perfectly crispy fries in the air fryer is making sure you soak the potatoes ahead of time.

Soaking potatoes in water helps remove extra starch and helps the fries cook evenly.

If you don’t have time to soak fries, you could also use frozen french fries in place of fresh potatoes.

Another reason your fries might not be crispy is from overcrowding in the air fryer. For the best results place the fries in a single layer in the air fryer.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes


  • 4 medium russet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp truffle oil
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ tsp salt or to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley


  • Peel and wash the potatoes. Cut them into fries using a mandolin or hand cut them.
  • Soak the cut fries in an ice bath for 5 minutes to remove excess starch. Drain and pat them dry.
  • Season the dried fries with olive oil, ensuring they’re evenly coated. Place them in the air fryer.
  • Cook the seasoned fries in the air fryer at 375°F (190°C) for 35-40 minutes, until they’re crispy and golden brown.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, shred the Parmesan cheese and chop the parsley.
  • When the fries are done, place them on a serving tray. Drizzle the truffle oil around the edges of a mixing bowl.
  • Transfer the cooked fries into the bowl with the truffle oil. Gently toss the fries to combine and ensure even coating. Season with salt to taste.
  • Arrange the truffle-coated fries on the serving tray.
  • Sprinkle the shredded Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley over the fries.
  • Serve the Parmesan truffle fries immediately, while they’re hot and flavorful.
