    Hey, thanks for sharing this recipe!!! I just wanted to share that this is like a recipe I learned from my Grandmother when I was 9!! HOWEVER, she used paprika, not oregano...

    As I've gotten older, I still use this recipe, REGULARLY - And I totally appreciate the nod to healthy frying via Air Fryer, which I don't, actually have!!! However, I achieve similar effects in one of two ways!! 1. On a jellyroll pan, I spritz non-stick cooking spray (I'm partial to olive oil, but up to you!!), I add the potato wedges/slices, a quick shake of salt, garlic powder and/or paprika, and another spritz with non-stick cooking spray over the potatoes, then bake, flipping halfway through cooking time. 2. The other thing I've done is to spritz the potatoes with non-stick cooking spray in a lg stainless bowl, and toss with salt/spices, and then put on a baking grid, on a lg. jellyroll pan. Advantage? No flipping. Disadvantage? A lg. stainless bowl to clean. I typically use the 1st method as a go-to!!!

    But the recipe is totally sound, and for those of you who have an Air Fryer, save your dollars on processed French Fries and indulge in wonderful, crispy, fluffy-on-the-inside potato wedges for -LITERALLY- pennies per pound (our local Kwik Trip convenience store sells russets for the recently-raised price of $.49/lb!!). You control the fat, the sodium, any processed ingredients, and save money - how do you beat that?!
