Why This Recipe Works
So long boring potatoes! Hello crispy, delicious, seasoned to perfection potatoes... in 15 minutes! Making air fryer potatoes in the ONLY way that I make potatoes now!
I love to make potatoes in the air fryer for quick weeknight dinners. And when I do I always made a big batch so that I have leftovers. I'll add them to salads, omelettes, or serve as breakfast potatoes! So versatile! Or, I can eat them plain with some air fryer boiled eggs for a super easy snack.
Plus? Potatoes are SO affordable! Key to my budget meal planning. If you haven't gotten into meal planning yet be sure to checkout my blog post on my top 5 tips for meal planning for beginners!
- Potatoes. I use russet baking potatoes. You can sub other potato types if you like. The more moisture, like a red potato, the less cooking time they'll need. So just check in on them when you're cooking them if you're using a different type!
- Seasonings. You can use whatever seasonings you like! You'll use about 1 tsp. I like to use a 50:50 mix of garlic and onion powder. You could also skip the seasonings and just use 1/4 tsp of salt!
- Oil. Sub whatever oil you like! I also love using sesame oil.
How To Make This Recipe
First preheat your air fryer to 375 degrees. If your air fryer doesn't have a preheat function like my 6qt Instant Pot Vortex air fryer does you can set it to 375 degrees and let it run for ~5 minutes while you're prepping everything else! This will make sure it gets up to temperature.
Cut your potatoes into ~1" cubes and place into a medium to large sized bowl.
Toss your potatoes first with the oil, then with the seasonings.
Air fry for a total of 15 minutes, shaking them once halfway through cooking.
Sure thing! You can make this recipe into air fryer red potatoes, sweet potatoes or baby potatoes! Use whatever you like. I found that red potatoes tend to cook faster, so you may want to check on them around 12-13 minutes.
Of course! My husband like the little cubes, but you could totally make this into air fryer sliced potatoes, wedges, or shoe-string potatoes. You may need to adjust the cooking time depending on how you cut them. Smaller pieces will cook faster and larger longer. Just keep an eye on them!Checkout my air fryer sweet potato recipe!
Yes! you can microwave them if you like but if you want them to get nice and crispy again you can pop them in the air fryer for ~3-5 minutes at 375.
