Busy week nights call for easy and quick recipes and these seasoned air fryer potatoes and my go-to! They’re perfectly crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and ready in 20 minutes. Win-win-win!
Why Air Fryer Potatoes?
If you know me at all you know I have a borderline obsessive relationship with my air fryer. It is KEY to making anything with a crispy outside. The warm air circulates, unlike the oven which keeps it stagnant and makes whatever you’re cooking soggy. Not the air fryer! It gets those edges cuh-rispay! And keeps the inside that soft, potato-ey goodness we all know and love.
I have the a similar air fryer to the one I use and LOVE linked here. It totes won’t disappoint and is a GREAT price! You can also find out more about how to pick an air fryer here, if you want to do some of your own research.

How To Eat Seasoned Air Fryer Potatoes
I love serving these with BBQ chicken, an easy pork tenderloin, or some baked tilapia. I usually always throw a bag of frozen veggies in the microwave and serve those with it, too. Seriously, those things save my life.
You can also sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top of these potatoes or drizzle come of my delish 5 minute butternut squash cheese sauce on top of them. Uh-Maze-Ing.
