Air Fryer Roasted Potatoes
Having perfectly roasted potatoes means that you’re looking for that crispy outer edge with a tender and soft middle. Thankfully, that’s exactly what you’re going to get with this yummy dish.
All you need are a few simple ingredients to get started, and everyone will be eating these crispy fried potatoes in no time at all.
- Baby Red and Gold Potatoes – You can use one or the other or a mixture of both.
- Olive Oil – Coconut oil would work well, also.
- Black Pepper and Salt – To taste.
How to cook Potatoes in the Air Fryer
Wash potatoes thoroughly. Slice the baby potatoes in half or into bite-sized pieces. Place them in a large mixing bowl.
Drizzle the potatoes with the oil and cover with salt and pepper. Toss the potatoes around in the bowl to get a nice coating.
Toss the potatoes in the air fryer basket evenly.
Cook at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Toss well and cook for another 10 minutes.
Let them cool for a few minutes. Serve!
Change up the seasoning – One of the easiest ways to make these potatoes taste differently every time is to change up the seasoning that you add. Give them some heat with cayenne pepper, or use Everything Bagel Seasoning to add some fun flavor as well. Another favorite is Lemon Pepper.
If you can soak the potatoes for 20 minutes after you cut them up, this will draw out the starch, which means that they’ll be crispier once they’re cooked!
How to Serve
You can literally pop them in your mouth as is, dip them into ketchup and enjoy, or top them with sour cream, bacon bits, chives, cheese, and more! One of our favorite ways is also to dip in ranch dressing. Kids seem to eat anything with ranch dressing.
How to Store
If you happen to have some leftovers, let the potatoes cool down all the way and then store them in an airtight container. They will need to be stored in the fridge and eaten within 2-3 days.
To reheat, you can add them back to the air fryer for a couple of minutes or use the microwave.
Do I have to flip the potatoes in the air fryer?
Yes, for the best results and to cook them evenly, flip them halfway through the cooking time. This will make sure that the entire potato crisps up and that one side isn’t going to burn while the other side stays undercooked.
Use tongs to flip them easily.
What size air fryer should I use?
This recipe was written for large air fryers of at least 4-quarts or higher. If you have a smaller air fryer, cut the recipe in half and cook for half the time.
Also, if the air fryer that you’re using doesn’t go up to 400 degrees, get as close to it as you can. This might mean that you’ll need to cook the potatoes for a few more minutes as well.
How do I know when the potatoes are done cooking?
The easiest way to know that the potatoes are done cooking is to poke them with a fork. They should be fork-tender. If they aren’t, let them cook for a few more minutes until they are.
