Tips for Making Crispy Potatoes in an Air Fryer

For these air fryer potatoes, I chose to use a potato medley of different varieties for visual appeal. You can certainly opt to make any variety, including sweet potatoes, using this same technique.

  • Know your air fryer and how it performs.
  • Arrange potatoes in a single layer so air can circulate evenly around all of the pieces. Don’t skip shaking the basket halfway through for even frying.
  • You can opt to use an oil spray in place of olive oil, if you want to lighten them up a bit. When doing so, please note, the Parmesan and seasonings adhere best when using oil.
  • As with any recipe, adapt the amount of seasonings and salt to your personal preference.
  • These potatoes are delicious on their own. If you’d like to add a dipping sauce, the work well with buttermilk ranch dressing a creamy Caesar dressing or any of your favorite dipping sauces.
