Garlic Parmesan Air-fried Potato Wedges with Tzatziki Dip

 It seems like yesterday when I was just posting my very first recipe post in the blog that I had sweltered with blood and tears, the time when I decided to officially make it a legit website.

Can’t help but be emotional and excited at the same time. As this post is my first for this year, my 13th blogging year at that.  So happy to be collaborating once again with US Potatoes as it has been our family’s go-to for an easy snack and side dish that’s both healthy and comforting yummy.

We love their U.S. dehydrated potatoes, which can easily be turned to mashed potatoes.  This time, I’m sharing one of the simplest recipes I could come up with, using U.S. Potatoes frozen potato wedges, cooked in an air-fryer, because yeah, life can be delicious and less of a hassle.  

To make the perfect air-fried potato wedges, you have to use the best quality frozen potatoes, well you can actually use fresh and raw Russet potatoes but you have to prep it before it can turn out to be crispy and tasty.  Better use the frozen one then and make life simpler.

The potato wedges are good by itself but to add more interest and make it “ala buon gustaio” (ala gourmet), serve it with Tzatziki dip which is also a healthy and versatile sauce well-loved by Mediterranean's.

This is an authentic tzatziki recipe, made with cucumber, yogurt, and garlic, as if you’re eating it straight from the Greek Island of Paros.  Be advised to make this dip first before cooking the potatoes, better yet, make it ahead of time as it need some time to rest in the fridge for the flavor to merge well and make the sharp garlic flavor to be mellowed.



Tzatziki dip:

1 medium cucumber, grated (using a cheese grater and hand-squeezed)

1 cup Greek Yogurt

4 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil or extra-virgin coconut oil

1 tsp white vinegar or balsamic vinegar

4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

Fresh dill

Air-fried Potato wedges:

2 tbsp butter

1 garlic clove pressed and chopped

1 tsp salt

1/2  dried parsley

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley


Tzatziki Dip

In a bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix.

Rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving.

To make to the potatoes:

Mix the garlic and butter in a microwavable bowl and microwave for 2 minutes.  

Mix the salt, pepper and dried parsley.  Mix well and mix in the clarified garlic butter.

On a big bowl, add the sliced potatoes into a large bowl along with the oil.  Use your clean hands to toss all the ingredients together.

Preheat your air-fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, then place the potatoes in a single layer. Cook for 15 minutes or until golden and crispy.

Add  in 1/2 cup grated Parmesan and cook for another 2 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Garnish with 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley and serve with the Tzatziki dip.
