​Roast Potatoes in Airfryer Recipe


Here are the ingredients for 4 portions of roast potatoes.

  • 1/2 kg potatoes, medium

How to make Airfried Roast Potatoes

Preparing the potatoes

First of all, I peel the potatoes only if they’re not organic. My trick is to go for potatoes around 5cm and that kind of look the same and to keep them whole. No problem if you have only large potatoes in the pantry – just cut them into equal chunks.

Roasting the potatoes in air fryer


In the airfryer basket, toss the potatoes, the spices, and the oil.


Make sure to coat all the potatoes with oil and spices.


Roast at 380°F (195°C) for 10 minutes


Flip the potatoes, and roast for 10 more minutes. 


Check that the potatoes are fork-tender and crispy on the outside.


Serve and enjoy!

Serving Suggestions

Serve the roast potatoes as a side, with the main dish based on protein.

As a condiment, if you’re not on a weight loss diet I only suggest a drizzle of oil. Any other spice or sauce like ketchup, honey mustard, or mayonnaise will hide the roast rustic taste of the potatoes.

Top Tips

  • No preheat is required but if you have time preheating for a couple of minutes will assure that your potatoes be crunchier.
  • Soak starch potatoes for 10 minutes and pat dry well before putting them in an air-fryer if you don’t want steamed potatoes.


  • More spicy. Use cayenne pepper.
  • More smokey. Use smoked paprika instead of sweet.
  • Packed with veggies. Add more vegetables such as carrots and asparagus.


Can you fry potatoes in air fryer?

Air fried potatoes are the next best thing to fries especially if you would like to avoid deep frying in oil. However, air fried potatoes do not taste exactly like the classic fries but somewhere in between baked and fried potatoes.

Are potatoes still healthy when air fried?

Boiled Potatoes are the healthiest way to cook potatoes. However, air fried potatoes are much healthier than fried potatoes since with an air fryer you will most likely use a fraction of the fat and therefore fewer calories. Additionally, air frying reduces the potentially harmful compounds that can form when cooking potatoes.

Can you freeze airfried roast potatoes?


Can you roast potatoes in air fryer straight from frozen?

Yes, since an air fryer is particularly suited for cooking frozen food.
