Hi there! What I’ve got for y’all tonight is a quick and easy, super-tasty side dish… and this time, I got reeeeal creative with the name! It’s called “Air Fryer Roasted Potatoes”. And it is, quite literally Air Fried/Roasted Potatoes. If you’ve got an Air Fryer, this side dish will be your new best friend. It’s my last minute “oh dang, I forgot a side” go-to, because there’s very rarely a time in life when I don’t have some potatoes on hand! These also make the perfect side dish for breakfast.
It’s really nothing too special. But I’ve shared a photo of them a few times, and lots of you have asked me how to make’m up, so here it is! 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.
Do you have an Air Fryer? I’ll be truthful, I wasn’t planning on getting one. I am not big on appliances whatsoever. I’m an old school kind of cook, and I just don’t like a bunch of extra stuff in the kitchen. (except for copious amounts of cute dishes, duh!) Last year, the ‘Simple Living Products’ company reached out to me and asked if they could ship me one, to try it out. I actually almost said no, but realized that a lot of my readers had Air Fryers, and so I decided to give it a shot. At first, I hated it… It was big & bulky, and seemed like an eye sore, just a lil too sleek & modern for my vintage lovin’ heart. But once I had used it to cook several different foods, something magical happened! I am now a firm believe in having an Air Fryer. I don’t use it all the time, and I go through periods where I don’t take it off the shelf, but then, I go through periods where I don’t take it off the counter because I’m using it for multiple meals a day! I’m so happy I got it. It gives many foods the same type of texture and taste that something deep fried would have, and without actually deep frying it, and I do love me some fried food! I’ve had so much luck with so many recipes, I will definitely be sharing them in the near future (especially now that the warmer weather is here, and I won’t be wanting to turn my oven on as much! a serious bonus!). How’s that sound? If you’re looking to get an Air Fryer, here’s the direct link to the same one I have. (affiliate link)
Let’s get in the kitchen!
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.
With love from my kitchen to yours,
