Which Potatoes Work Best for This Air Fryer Recipe?

Pretty much any potato will work well for air fryer roasted potatoes. Russets get nice and crisp with a soft and fluffy interior. Yellow or Yukon Gold potatoes get crispy outside with more of a creamy interior. Reds will be similar with that crispiness and a soft, creamy texture inside. I think any potato will work just fine in the air fryer! 🙂

How to Make the Best Air Fryer Roasted Potatoes (Step-by-Step)

Air fryer roasted potatoes are so simple and reward you with the best flavors. Here’s how to make them so you can get them on the table with dinner tonight!

    Depending on the kind of potatoes you have, you may want to peel them. I’d recommend peeling with Russets but other potatoes are fine with the skins on if you like them that way. There’s a ton of nutrition in those potato skins. Peel or don’t peel, but cut them up into cubes. You’ll also want to chop your garlic.Air fryer roasted potatoes are perfect for the holidays, and the amazing flavors of garlic and rosemary make this dish incredibly flavorful and inviting!

Air Fryer Roasted Potatoes FAQs

How to Cut a Potato into Cubes? 

After you wash your potatoes (and peel them if you want them without skins), take a sharp knife and cut your potatoes lengthwise into slices. Then take those slices and cut them again lengthwise into the width. Turn the potato and make the final cuts of the same width in the opposite direction, and you will have uniform cubes of potatoes. 

Should I Soak Potatoes in Water Before Air Frying?

While you do not have to soak potatoes in water prior to this recipe, you certainly can. It sounds strange, but soaking them draws out some of the natural starch, which can make them even crispier. You can still follow this recipe for perfectly crispy potato cubes without soaking them, though. 

Should I boil my potatoes before I air fry them? 

Known as blanching, if you boil your potatoes for about 4 minutes before air frying, you’ll have the same result as soaking them. Again, you don’t have to do this before following my recipe to get crispy cubes. 

Are Air-fried Potatoes Healthy? 

Yes, air-fried potatoes are a healthier way to eat potatoes when you want something fried. They come out with the perfect crispiness just like a restaurant only, without all that excess oil.

Variations/Substitutions:

Using the techniques in my recipe, you can season your air fryer roasted potatoes in so many ways to shake things up. Think Cajun, a perfect pairing for a fish dish! Or Mexican when you want to round out your taco night. Greek can give that Mediterranean flair with garlic, oregano, basil, onion, and dill. There’s also Italian seasoning or even ranch to make your air fryer potatoes go with any meal.

Braised Short Ribs. Mouthwatering and finger-licking good braised beef short ribs are flavorful, tasty, juicy, and fall off the bone. 

Mouthwatering and finger-licking good braised beef short ribs are flavorful, tender, tasty, juicy, and fall off the bone. I cooked these English – style short ribs without wine in the oven until they were very tender and juicy!

This way, they infuse and release tons of flavors, becoming very tender and juicy.
