From start to finish, this recipe takes just 40 minutes– no boiling required! Using the air fryer creates a super crunchy coating with much less oil than frying or even baking, and the seasoning blend pairs well with just about any main dish!
Variations on Air Fryer Roasted Potatoes
To change up the flavor of these potatoes, try different spices and seasoning blends. If you do choose to either drizzle a sauce on top of the potatoes or offer one on the side, I recommend making a really good one like garlic aioli.

How to Store and Reheat
Once the potatoes have been cooled to room temperature, you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3-4 days. To maintain their original consistency, reheat them in the air fryer at 350°F for about 4-5 minutes.
How to Freeze
You can freeze air fryer potatoes in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Before reheating, I recommend letting the potatoes thaw completely in the refrigerator.
These air fried potatoes are great with so many main dishes. They are great with large celebration dinners, like a Prime Rib Roast or a Whole Roast Chicken, as well as easy weeknight meals, like our favorite Blackened Salmon or Garlic Herb Turkey Breast.

How to Make Air Fryer Potatoes Step by Step
Cube the Potatoes: Place 2 pounds of cubed yellow skinned potatoes in a large mixing bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of olive oil to the bowl and stir to evenly coat the potatoes.
Make the Seasoning: In a small bowl mix 1 tablespoon of dried minced onion, 2 teaspoons of garlic powder, 2 teaspoons of ground paprika, 2 teaspoons of ground mustard, ½ teaspoon of kosher salt, and ½ teaspoon of ground black pepper.
Season the Potatoes: Pour the dry ingredients into the large bowl with potatoes and stir again to coat evenly. Place the potatoes into the air fryer basket.
Cook the Potatoes: Cook at 370°F for 20-25 minutes or until golden and crispy on the outside. Be sure to shake the basket about halfway through the cooking time to ensure the potatoes are being cooked evenly. Garnish with fresh parsley and freshly grated parmesan cheese (optional) and enjoy!
These air fryer potatoes are a great option if you are planning them as part of a big feast, as they taste just as good when they are reheated! Simply pop cold, cooked potatoes in the air fryer at 350°F and heat them for about 4 to 5 minutes until they are crispy again. They taste like you’ve just made them!
I like to use yellow skinned potatoes that are starchy, like Yukon Gold. You can also use Russet potatoes. It’s best to avoid waxy potatoes like reds or fingerlings as they won’t get as fluffy on the inside.
First of all, make sure the potatoes are all cut evenly so they cook evenly! It also helps to shake the air fryer basket about halfway through cooking so the potatoes crisp up all over.
