The Best Air Fryer Potatoes

Potatoes are always a big hit, especially fried, of course! If you want a a GOOD potato wedge that is not fried, this is it. You may even think your potato side this holiday season and add some potato wedges to the menu.

Why we love these potatoes

No peeling the skin. For this recipe, you only need to wash the potatoes really well. You do have the option to peel them, but they are delicious and tender with the peel.

Full of flavor. A good flavorful potato wedge is everything, this seasoning has a good smokey flavor, it’s garlicky, and a good sharpness from that parmesan cheese!

Vitamin C boost. Did you know that yukon gold potatoes are full of vitamin C? One medium yukon gold has half a days worth of vitamin, and twice as much as a russet potato.

Do you need an Air Fryer for this recipe?

First of all, you do need an air fryer for this recipe. Second, it CAN be made in the oven!

How to make potato wedges in the oven

If you don’t have an air fryer, we’ve got you covered! Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Arrange the potatoes in a single layer. Bake for 25-30 minutes, making sure to flip half way through the baking time.

Should you spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray?

We do recommend spraying the basket with cooking spray, just to ensure that the potatoes don’t stick. Plus, everyone has a different air fryer and some may stick more than others.

Different types of potatoes

There is no rule on which potato you should use. You can substitute with red potatoes or russet. Be careful with the cooking times as each potato cooks differently based off the size

Notes

If you don't want to boil the potatoes, here are instructions for soaking:
Place the potato wedges in a large bowl and cover with water as necessary. Let soak for 30 minutes, then strain and pat dry.

How to make without boiling the potatoes first

If you don’t want to boil the potatoes, you can soak them instead. Place the potato wedges in a large bowl and cover with water as necessary. Let soak for 30 minutes, then strain and pat dry.

What happens when you soak potatoes before air frying?

Soaking the potatoes helps release some of the starches, which results in crispier fries. The key is to completely dry the potatoes before adding the olive oil and seasoning.

How to avoid soggy air fried potatoes

The key to making sure the wedges do not get soggy is making sure the potatoes are dry before you continue on with the recipe. Soggy potatoes come from extra moisture.
