These are my kid’s favorite potatoes before I got my air fryer, I used to make them in the oven. But, since I have been using the oven less and less, I thought I would give it a shot in the air fryer, and I’m so glad I did, they worked out perfectly.
These potatoes come out nice and crispy, and you can make a huge batch of them in no time. One of the best things is you can season them your way, I tend to season mine with salt, paprika, and some other spices. Becuase, I like a nice flavor on my potatoes. I don’t like the potatoes greasy, which is why I never order them when we go out to eat, they are really just greasy, and obviously not very healthy. But, with the air fryer, you can change all of that.
And, when you control cooking them, you can make them anytime, my kids love these with traditional BBQ dishes, hamburgers, and hot dogs. And since you don’t have to be in the kitchen while they cook (although, warning you should never leave your air fryer unattended to) you can make them when you have a large gathering, family reunion, 4th of July party, etc. They are the perfect side dish.
Here are some tips, when making potatoes in the air fryer.
- Cut them all into equal sizes, or do your best, since you want them all done at the same time.
- Coat them generously with olive oil, as they will crisp up better.
- Don’t be afraid of using your spices, potatoes without anything are bland.
- Experiment with spices, you may find that you like some spices, better than other, this is the journey of cooking, embrace it.
