Air Fryer Potatoes

Air Fryer Potatoes

One of our favorite uses of the air fryer? Herby, crispy roasted potatoes. We love using the air fryer for super crispy potatoes in half the time—no waiting for the oven to preheat, and cooked through in around 10 minutes! Plus, the air fryer requires less oil than typical roasting while still giving an ultra-crispy, golden outside. Toss in your favorite seasonings, and in no time you’ll have perfectly crisp potatoes ready to be served with everything.

What potatoes are best for the air fryer?
Baby potatoes are our fave for the air fryer—really any variety will work, but we recommend looking for baby Yukon gold or red potatoes.

Do I need to boil my potatoes before frying?
No need to boil! The air fryer will do all the work to these tiny taters, keeping them soft and cooked-through on the inside.

Tip: If you're doubling the recipe, make sure to cook in batches! You want your potatoes to be in a single layer when cooking for maximum crispiness (trust us—it's worth it).

We coated these babies in a mix of savory seasonings before topping them with fresh herbs, but this easy side is endlessly customizable. Keep it simple with garlic powder, salt and pepper, or switch it up by adding your favorite seasonings—Cajun, herbs de Provence, even Parmesan—to make them completely your own.

How should I serve them?
These crispy bites are so easy, they come in handy for almost any meal, anytime of the day! Serve them up in your breakfast taco, as a hearty side to your weeknight chicken dinner, or whip them up with some ketchup or ranch for a dippable, savory snack at your Super Bowl party.
