Air fryer French onion potato sticks

Air fryer French onion potato sticks

We’re constantly searching for the next cheesy snack to air fry, and these potato sticks are a great fit. They’re the perfect party dish or sly nibble, made with mashed potatoes, cheese, and a bit French onion soup mix (which gives them a little throwback kick). If you want to taste that wonderful flavour even more, dip them into French onion sour cream.


  1. 600g sebago (brushed) Potatoes peeled, coarsely chopped
  2. 100g (1 cup) coarsely grated mozzarella
  3. 70g (1/2 cup) cornflour
  4. 40g packet French onion soup mix
  5. 125g (1/2 cup) Bulla Light Sour Cream
  6. Finely chopped fresh chives or green shallots, to serve
  7. Sea salt flakes, to serve (optional)


  1. Put 600g of peeled and coarsely chopped sebago (brushed) potatoes in a medium saucepan and add lots of cold water to cover. Set on a medium-high heat source. After covering, come to a boil. After lowering the heat to medium-low, simmer the potatoes for 15 minutes, or until they are very soft. Empty. Move to a bowl. Mash till smooth, then remove and allow it cool fully.
  2. Add 100g (1 cup) coarsely grated mozzarella, 70g (1/2 cup) cornflour and 1 tbsp of the 40g packet French onion soup mix to the potato. Use clean hands to mix until well combined. Transfer to a medium freezer-safe sealable plastic bag. Gently flatten the mixture in the bag, pressing the mixture into the edges. Seal then place in the freezer for 1 hour or until firm.
  3. Cut the bag carefully away from the potato mixture using scissors. Throw away the bag. Place the potato mixture onto a cutting board and make slices that are 2.5 cm thick. Halve every piece lengthwise.
  4. Put half of the potato sticks in the air fryer’s basket. Apply oil with a spray. Turn and spray again, repeating until all sides are well coated. Air fry at 180C for 10 minutes or until crisp and golden. Move to a platter. Repeat with remaining potato sticks.
  5. In the meantime, combine the remaining soup mix and 125g (1/2 cup) of Bulla Light Sour Cream in a small bowl. The mixture should be thick enough to dip into; if not, add one or two tablespoons of water and stir until thoroughly mixed.
  6. Arrange the sour cream mixture in the middle of a serving platter for serving. Arrange the potato sticks over the sour cream mixture. Then, if using, top with finely chopped fresh chives or green onions and sea salt flakes.
