Crispy, golden brown on the outside and seriously FLUFFY on the inside.
That’s how I like my potatoes. Don’t care if they’re in the form of air fryer sweet potato fries, oven roasted lemon Greek potatoes or these air fried potatoes, that is how I want the potato situation to go down in my mouth.
Some call it picky. I call it “in the know.”
And, you guys, leave it to the air fryer to make potato magic happen. Now we know it makes the crispiest air fryer Brussels Sprouts, crispy baked air fryer chicken breast AND potatoes.

What Kind of Potatoes to use?
There are many different kinds of potatoes and here at FFF we love them all! Some are great for frying, some for roasting, others for mashing up for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.
To make these potatoes in air fryer, I used Yellow Potatoes. They crisp up really nice and I thought they turned out perfect. However, you can get creative and switch it up a little if you have a different kind of potato.
Any potatoes should work in this recipe as long as you cut them as recommended in the directions!
How to Air Fry Potatoes
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. These delicious fried potatoes in air fryer are as EASY as they are delicious! Here’s how you’re going to make it happen:
Turn on your air fryer and set it to 400 degrees to preheat.
Wash and dry your potatoes well and then cut them into quarters. Toss them in a bowl with olive oil and a generous sprinkle of salt.
Arrange the potatoes cut side down in the mesh basket of your air fryer. Cook for 12 minutes. Next, flip the potatoes and allow them to cook another 8-10 minutes, or until crispy and golden brown.
Let them cool a little and then devour!
How long to cook Potatoes in Air Fryer
As said above, it usually takes about 20-25 minutes to cook these potatoes in my air fryer (flipping about halfway through the cook time). I find that it even varies when using the same air fryer, as the size of the potatoes aren’t always the same. When using another brand of air fryer, cook time can vary, so you just need to watch the potatoes to make sure they are golden brown and fork tender.
What to Serve with Air Fryer Roasted Potatoes
As if these potatoes aren’t tasty enough on their own, you can jazz them up even more with different dipping sauces! A few that would pair well and that I recommend are:
- Honey Mustard Dip: Go ahead and snag this dip from a delicious chicken recipe that I LOVE (go ahead and make the chicken too- it would pair so fantastically!)
- Crockpot Healthy Buffalo Chicken Dip with Cauliflower: this would be a match made in heaven!
- Ketchup or mayo with sriracha would be a tasty way to dip and enjoy these potatoes!
