Air Fryer Roasted Potatoes are quickly becoming my go-to easy side dish recipe. They go with so many different entrees or are even a tasty appetizer.
Air fryer potatoes are extremely tasty and our kids absolutely love them too. So, naturally when I find a recipe that the kids like I tend to make it often!
Since these potatoes are made in the air fryer, you can spend your time focusing on the main part of the meal and let the air fryer do the hard work.
These potatoes are not exactly french fries because they use a lot less oil and they are larger potatoes than the thin little slices used for fries. These oven-roasted potatoes are about 1-inch pieces and they are just as good as any fries I’ve had! The best way to cook these in the air fryer is to place them in a single layer to get the most crispy potatoes possible. I like to use yellow potatoes but any kind of potato will do the job. To truly give these crispy air-fryer potatoes a 5 star rating I recommend seasoning them generously. I like to use onion powder, and garlic powder. Sometimes when I want to mix it up I’ll add fresh rosemary, Italian seasoning, and cajun seasoning. You can also cut up fresh garlic cloves and throw those into the mix.
The perfect way to make this great side dish is to cut the potato pieces evenly so that they all cook the same. These seasoned potatoes will achieve the best results this way. The fresh herbs can be added after you have air fried the starchy potatoes. If you end up with any leftover potatoes you can throw them into an airtight storage container and reheat them in the air fryer the next day.
Pro Tip: A little bit of oil goes a long way with this simple side dish, so make sure not to overdo it. If you use less oil then this can be more of a healthy side dish! Also make sure to cook the potatoes for long enough. The cooking time will depend on your air fryer but typically this delicious side dish will be completed in 10 minutes.

Ingredients Needed For This Air Fryer Roasted Potatoes Recipe:
- Russet Potatoes
- Olive oil
- Parmesan cheese
- Garlic Powder
- Ground pepper
How To Make Air Fryer Roasted Potatoes Recipe:
Grab a large mixing bowl and toss together your chopped up russet potatoes, olive oil, parmesan cheese, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
After the potatoes are completely coated in the oil and seasonings, carefully place them in air fryer basket.
Then, place the basket into the Instant Pot’s inner pot and place the air fryer lid on top.
After you have that set up, set the temperature to 400 degrees and set the timer for 10 minutes.
When the 10 minutes are up remove the lid of the air fryer, then carefully shake the basket to stir the potatoes.
After the potatoes have been shaken, place the lid back on and allow the potatoes to cook until they are are golden brown and tender inside. This should take about 7-8 minutes.
When the potatoes are done cooking, pour them onto another serving place and sprinkle them with more salt and pepper.
Then, just serve them hot and enjoy!
These potatoes will also work in any air fryer (we just used an Instant Pot that had the air fryer lid attachment).
