These are perfectly roasted with a crispy and golden outside and fluffy inside. Also, very flavorful with simple ingredients and olive oil.

The Seasonings used

You can use any of your favorite seasonings but the ones in this recipe are the basic pantry ingredients.

  1. Olive oil
  2. Paprika
  3. Onion powder
  4. Salt and pepper
  5. Dried Oregano
  6. Dried Thyme
  7. Dried Parsley

Which type of Potatoes to use?

Baby potatoes, fingerlings, russet potatoes, and Yukon gold are good to roast. I used baby red potatoes and it turned out perfect. Also, make sure you cut them just about the same sizes so they cook evenly.

What if I don’t have an air fryer

You can enjoy these even without an air fryer. In the oven, bake at 400 degrees F for 30-40 and flip halfway through cooking time.

Tips for Crispy Air Fryer Potatoes.

  • Preheat the air fryer for 5 minutes for extra crispiness.
  • Leave the skin on.
  • To toss or flip potatoes, use a tong and gently flip to avoid them from breaking or scattering.
  • Serve immediately to enjoy crispiness.
  • Do not overcrowd the air fryer basket.

How to preserve air-fried potatoes.

  • Preserve in the fridge in an air-tight container or zip-lock bag for about 3-5 days.
  • Can freeze for up to 3 months.
  • Thaw and reheat in the air fryer at 400 degrees F till crispy.
