  • 3 russet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Wingstop Fry Seasoning

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar


Air Fryer

  • Scrub and clean potatoes. Cut the potatoes into fries by cutting them 1/4 inch lengthwise and then cut into fries. Feel free to peel them if you don't like the skin.
  • Place them in a bowl with ice water. This helps remove some of the starch which helps to get them crispy when they cook. Let them soak for 30 minutes up to 2 hours.
  • Remove from water and pat dry.
  • Place fries in a bowl and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Pour the fries into air fryer basket. Try spreading them out into a single layer to ensure they cook evenly.
  • Cook at 390 degrees F for 10 minutes. Shake the basket and cook another 7-10 minutes. Be sure to keep checking on the fries. Each air fryer will cook a little different so you want to make sure they don't burn.
  • Mix the seasonings together in a bowl while fries are cooking. Carefully remove the French fries and immediately season with Wingstop seasoning.

Stove Top

  • Clean potatoes, cut into fries. Place fries in cold water for at least 30 minutes.
  • Remove potatoes from water and pat driy.
  • Pour 2-3 inches of vegetable oil in a large pot or Dutch oven. Heat oil to 325 degrees F. Place half of the cut potatoes into the pot and cook for 5 minutes. Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate. Add the remainder of the cut potatoes and cook 5 minute, remove.
  • Place the cooked fries back in the hot oil and cook again for 2-3 minutes.
  • Carefully remove and place on another paper towel lined plate.Toss fries in seasoning mix.
