Easy Air Fryer Roasted Potatoes
My Favorite Way to Make Roasted Potatoes
Looking for an easy and delicious side? Definitely give this Air Fryer Roasted Potatoes recipe a try. I love making roasted potatoes in the air fryer because it really is easy, it is faster than in the oven, and they always turn out delicious! Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. This is my go-to roasted potatoes recipe.
For roasting amounts larger than about 1 1/2 pounds at a time, it is probably better to go the oven route though. Of course, this also depends on the size of your air fryer. I can do 1 to 1 1/2 pounds roasted potatoes in my air fryer and keep them in a single layer so it works well.
How to Make Easy Air Fryer Potatoes
Cut the potatoes into evenly sized chunks or cubes and place them in a large bowl. Cutting the potatoes into similarly sized chunks helps the potatoes to cook more evenly. Pour the olive oil (or avocado oil) over the potatoes, then sprinkle the seasonings over top. Toss the potatoes with the seasonings until evenly coated.
Transfer potatoes to a preheated air fryer. For best results, keep the potatoes in a single layer so they can crisp up nicely. Preheating also helps the potatoes crisp and cuts down on the cooking time a little bit. I find that there’s no need to toss the potatoes halfway through cooking time, but you are welcome to do that if you want.
What Kind of Potatoes
I love using Yukon gold or yellow potatoes in this recipe because they don’t need to be peeled and have a great texture and flavor. My local grocery store sells a 1 1/2 pound bag of prewashed petite gold potatoes that make prep super easy.
You can use the cooking method and seasoning for other varieties of potatoes too though. Red potatoes would be a great alternative!
How Long to Cook Potatoes in Air Fryer
With the gold potatoes cut into chunks about 1- to 2-inches in size, it takes my air fryer about 12-15 minutes to roast them. When done, the potatoes are browned, especially on the edges, and can be easily pierced with a fork.
Reheat Leftover Air Fryer Potatoes
It’s easy to warm up leftovers and have them tasting like they were just freshly roasted! Leftover potatoes can be reheated in your air fryer at 350°F for about 5-10 minutes, depending on how thick the pieces are.
