CRISPY AIR FRYER POTATOES — Baby potatoes are air-fried with oil and seasonings until they are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, then finished off with a squeeze of lemon juice and some fresh parsley in this easy, crowd-pleasing side dish.
In case I haven’t mentioned it, I love my air fryer, and if you’re looking for the perfect side dish to serve with practically any meal, look no further than this recipe for Crispy Air Fryer Potatoes.
I’ll be honesty, I don’t have much luck with trendy kitchen appliances, like the Instant Pot, for example. So I was skeptical about owning an air fryer and delayed buying one for quite a while.
When I finally took the plunge, I regretted not getting an air fryer sooner. Especially when it comes to cooking my family’s favorite side dish–potatoes!
I’ve tried many recipes at home for making crispy, oven-baked roasted potatoes, but none of them compare to these crispy air-fried potatoes. And that goes for making all kinds of crispy potatoes at home, including French fries and potato chips.
Of course, if you don’t have an air fryer, you can definitely use this recipe to make roasted potatoes in your oven, and they’ll still be fairly crispy and totally delicious. But if you want really crispy potatoes, an air fryer is the way to go.
My recipe calls for baby potatoes, but you can certainly use full-size potatoes and cut them into chunks. Any kind of potato works well, so feel free to use what you have on hand.
Besides potatoes, you’ll just need some olive, garlic salt and Italian seasoning for cooking. Once the potatoes are nice and crispy, you’ll drizzle them with lemon juice and sprinkle them with fresh parsley before serving.
Really, you can use an seasonings you like for this cooking method, but what really makes these potatoes shine is the lemon juice and parsley garnish, so don’t skip that step.
When I say these potatoes are a great side dish for almost any meal, I really mean it. Serve them with chicken, burgers, steak, seafood, or even your Tex-Mex favorites. Okay, it might be a bit much to serve potatoes with pasta, but honestly, I wouldn’t complain about that either!
If you love your air fryer as much as I do, this recipe for Crispy Air Fryer Potatoes is one you’ll always want to have handy. Enjoy, and happy air frying!
