Air Fryer Roasted Potatoes are a quick and easy seasoned potato side dish. These take just minutes to prep and cook which makes them a super easy weeknight side dish!

We love using our Air Fryer for side dishes especially when the oven is full or there are multiple pots on the the stove top. These Air Fryer Potatoes come out lightly crisp on the outside and tender on the inside.

You just need an Air Fryer, Potatoes, your favorite Seasoned Salt ( I always use Lawry’s), Olive Oil, and a few shots of cooking spray… and you’re less than half an hour away from a super tasty and almost effortless side dish.

How to make roasted potatoes in the air fryer

Grab some potatoes. I usually use these baby potatoes. Baby/petite potatoes can be found in the produce section of any grocery store by the other potatoes. Don’t have any on hand? That’s okay too. I use the regular size potatoes and just cut them into smaller chunks. Either one works great, but I really do love these baby potatoes just a bit more!

Here’s another photo of ’em for your viewing pleasure. Haha!

Preheat your Air Fryer for a few minutes. I just turn it on and get it going while I’m cutting up the potatoes.

If using the baby potatoes, go ahead and just quickly cut them into fourths.

Add olive oil & 1 teaspoon of Seasoned Salt.

Toss it all together.

Spray the basket with just a few sprays of cooking spray.

Throw the potatoes in the basket, and cook for 25-28 minutes. You’ll need to remove the basket every 6-7 minutes and shake well, then return and continue to cook.

The potatoes will have a nice golden brown color all over with a few delicious, dark-colored crispy bits in places.

Throw’m back in a bowl and then season a bit more with a tiny bit more seasoned salt, a little garlic powder, or just some salt & pepper. Be careful not to over-salt, you can always add a bit more later.

So easy, and sooo good!

I love these, and I know y’all will too.

    Just made these tonight. I cookthem 23 minutes on the french fry setting (380°) and they are perfect! Lovely golden color with a crisp crust and fluffy center. I used Jane’s Krazy Mixed up Salt and Honey Gold baby potatoes.

  2. We had a bunch of potatoes that were getting soft, so I decided to try this out with them. WOW! The whole family liked them, and now I am enjoying them for breakfast with a fried egg on top. So good and so easy!

        These are amazing. With this CoVid virus scare, I am trying to keep my family home and away from crowds. We are enjoying actually sitting down to meals together again, and I must say I am enjoying it! A fresh pot of pinto beans, a pong of homemade cornbread, and your delicious oven fried potatoes. This was MUCH better than the fast food we often grab, with each of us scattered in all directions!

        I am so glad I found your website. I plan on giving more of your fabulous ideas a try.

        Thanks, kiM~

  3. This is a keeper! I made this for dinner and it was very good. I air-fried them 8 min longer than directed because my kids like crispier potatoes and they disappeared as soon as they landed on the plate.
