Are Potato Wedges and JoJo Fries the Same Thing

While these potato wedges are air fried. They are similar but slightly different in taste and cooking methods.

Step 2: Toss your wedged potatoes in a bowl. Then you will add in all your seasonings and oil.

Step 3: Toss your potatoes in the mixture. I spritz my air fryer trays with oil to help prevent sticking.

Then I lay out my wedges in a single layer making sure there is room between each potato.

Step 4: Spritz the wedges again with oil if you would like to help get that deep golden brown texture. Then cook at 385 degrees for around 12-15 minutes. Depending on thickness will vary in how long to cook.
