I do LOVE Potato Wedges

Potato wedges are my absolute favorite kind of fries. There’s just something about their crispy exterior and soft, fluffy interior that I can’t resist. And when they’re coated in garlic and served with a creamy aioli sauce? It’s a match made in heaven.

To make my garlic potato wedges, I start by slicing my potatoes into thick wedges. Then, I toss them with olive oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Once they’re coated evenly, I place them in my air fryer and cook them until they’re golden brown and crispy.

While the wedges cook, I whip up a quick aioli sauce to serve on the side. I combine mayonnaise, minced garlic, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt, stirring until everything is well combined. The result is a creamy, garlicky sauce that perfectly complements the crispy potato wedges.

Whenever I make these garlic potato wedges with aioli sauce, they’re always a hit. They’re the perfect side dish for burgers, hot dogs, or anything else you might be grilling up. Plus, they’re a healthier alternative to traditional fried potatoes, since they’re made in the air fryer with minimal oil.
