What Makes These Air Fryer Potatoes So Great?

Do You Have To Boil Potatoes Before Frying Them?

Absolutely! Potatoes are amazing in the air fryer. The air fryer makes them crispy on the outside and soft in the middle in a fraction of the time you could do that in the oven.

 I’ve cooked potatoes often in my air fryer (and not just french fries!) and I’m always happy with how they turn out. I also love the amount of time it saves cooking potatoes in the Air Fryer,  and I also don’t have to heat the whole house up baking them in the oven. 

Rosemary Roasted Potatoes also freeze very well I’ve found. You just need to defrost them gently (as in, don’t be impatient and give it 100% high treatment in the microwave like me).

Should Potatoes Be Soaked Before Roasting?

Depending on the method you’re using to roast them, the answer can vary. The purpose of soaking potatoes is to remove any excess starch so that they don’t stick together in the roasting process.

Since it is a best practice to always cook food in a single layer in an air fryer to allow the air to circulate around the food and cook it evenly, soaking the potatoes before roasting them in the air fryer isn’t necessary.

However, if you want to make this recipe in the oven or are wanting to make a larger portion than the recipe calls for, I would suggest soaking the potatoes before roasting them.

What You Need To Make These Rosemary Roasted Potatoes | Air Fryer Recipe

  • 15 minutes
  • Potatoes
  • A few spices
  • An air fryer (or not)

They’re an easy side dish, would be great to bring to a potluck, and are a great use of those extra potatoes you have in your pantry.

How to Make Rosemary Roasted Potatoes In the Air Fryer

Tossing them or spraying them in a thin coat of oil before you cook ensures the air fryer roasted potatoes are crispy and perfect when they come out. It’s far less oil than actually frying them, and you won’t miss it. I love the fresh taste the rosemary gives them and these always disappear quickly each time I make them.

  1. Wash and cut the potatoes into 4 large chunks. 
  2. Combine in a large bowl, the cut potatoes, oil, rosemary, garlic, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat everything together.
  3. Place the seasoned potatoes in the air fryer. Cook at 400 for 15 minutes. Check to make sure the potatoes are cooked through. Cook an additional 10 minutes if needed. 
  4. Remove from the air fryer and place in a serving bowl. 
  5. Garnish with lemon juice and parsley. 

No Air Fryer?

No Problem! But you should definitely get one soon! Use the same ingredients and measurements, preheat your regular oven to 400F, and roast for 30 to 45 minutes. You will need to check them at the 30-minute mark and see how done they are.

Grease your baking sheet and stir the potatoes around at the halfway point so all the potatoes crisp evenly. You are looking for a tender inside and crispy outside.

  • Use Vegetable Oil or Olive Oil to toss the potatoes in the Air Fryer. 
  • Layer potatoes in an even layer for even cooking.

Are Air Fried Potatoes Good For You?

This potato recipe is healthier than deep-frying or sauteing potatoes in tons of oil and butter. My recipe only used 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil. You can also use Extra Virgin Olive Oil, but Vegetable oil has a higher smoke point making it perfect for Air Fryer Potatoes. Do not use Butter in the air fryer, as it will smoke too much and burn.
