Easy Air fryer roasted potato recipe
I only recently purchased my air fryer and I have practically tried all recipes I can think of in it and I haven’t been disappointed. Air fryer recipes are convenient and mess-free.
My family and I are now enjoying our weekly serving of jacket baked potatoes which can also be made in an instant pot. I do have to give it to the air fryer, the potatoes whether roasted or baked comes out right at all times.
You don’t need to parboil the potatoes as I did with these Parmentier potatoes or crispy roasties when using the air fryer. That process takes about 10 minutes off the cooking time. All you have to do to make is to cut the potatoes into cube sizes, season them with herbs, salt and peppers and roast in the air fryer until golden brown and perfectly crispy.
You can eat these roasted potatoes any time of the day; breakfast, lunch or dinner. In fact, the leftover makes a perfect school dinner, because of the size, it can be eaten cold at room temperature.

How to make easy air fryer roasted potatoes
Wash the potatoes and pat them dry with a kitchen towel. You can peel the potatoes if you like but there is no need to as the potato skin contains great nutrients that is good for the body.
Cut the potatoes into cubes and transfer them into a bowl or the air fryer basket if you would like to skip on the extra dish washing.
Season the potatoes with Italian seasoning, paprika, garlic granules, onion powder, olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix to combine so the potatoes are well coated.
Spray the air fryer basket with some cooking oil (it is not important to preheat the air fryer but you may do so if you prefer)
Add the seasoned cubed potatoes to the air fryer and roast at 200C/400F for 10 minutes. Remove the basket and give it a good shake or flip the potatoes if they are not many. Continue to air fry the potatoes for another 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and crispy to your liking
Serve immediately with other sides of choice
Do you parboil potatoes before air frying
No, this step is optional depending on the style of potatoes you are cooking. For diced or cubed potatoes, there is no need to parboil them as they cook faster and you would still get a great result. That said, if making roast potatoes that are cut into larger chunks (about 2-3cm) then you may need to parboil first so that the spud can cook evenly.
Can you cook potatoes and onions in the air fryer
Yes, you can! to avoid the onions burning quickly, add it about 8-10 minutes before the end of the cooking time.
