There’s very little wrong in life that can’t be cured with potatoes. A least in my opinion. Potatoes to me are the ultimate comfort food. These crispy air fried potatoes are especially delicious! The fact that they are the perfect crispy texture without a ton of oil is a huge bonus!
It’s no secret that I love my air fryer. I have several recipes utilizing this little gadget and you can check those out here. I’ve used it for main entreés like tilapia or chicken to sides like veggies and potatoes. I find that a little oil spray goes a long way in an air fryer. It’s the perfect way to get a crispy texture to your food without spending 45 minutes in an oven or being doused in oils. Typically in my air fryer, I can have perfectly crispy food in 15 minutes or less. I also love using my air fryer to re-heat my vegetables or potatoes. It keeps them from getting soggy and re-heats back to that same “fried” texture I’m going for.
I used to use a Farberware air fryer and I LOVED it. It worked great and was reasonably priced. My husband is a bit of a gadget geek and so when he saw a digital air fryer from Gourmia, he had to have it. One day I got home and I was like “Honey? We got a new air fryer?” I gotta say though, it’s been awesome. This air fryer is digital so it’s much easier to set the temperature and cooking time compared to having to turn a little dial and hope it was around where you wanted it to be. I couldn’t find the link to the exact model I have but here is a very similar air fryer from Gourmia). I do find though that with air frying, the best thing to do is take out the basket every 5 minutes are so and give its contents a good shake just to check things out until it’s cooked to your liking.
I’m currently on a round of Whole30 and since I have a pretty full workout routine, potatoes are a large part of my diet. I am constantly cutting up potatoes and sticking them in the air fryer while I make the other parts of my meal because it’s just so dang easy. I figured it was about time that I actually get a post up on the blog about it! So here is my version of crispy air fried potatoes!
- 2 medium russet potatoes cubed
- oil spray (I use avocado oil spray)
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- Mix seasonings in a small bowl and set aside
- Add cubed potato to the air fryer basket and spray with avocado oil
- Top with seasonings and shake basket until all the potatoes are coated
- Set air fryer to 400 degrees and "fry" for 15 minutes, shaking air fryer basket every now a few times so potatoes cook evenly
