The air fryer is definitely my favorite method of roasting potatoes. This method is quicker and the results have yet to be beat.

This potato recipe is so easy, it's ready in under 20 minutes. See for yourself.
Here's All There Is To It
Start with dicing or cubing your potatoes. I don't stress over making sure they're all the same shape but I do take care to make sure they're all about the same size for even cooking.
Add a bit of oil and seasonings and toss around well to make sure each potato gets coated and place them in the air fryer basket.
Set the temp and time. After 10 minutes, give the basket a little shake-a-roo and put them back in.
At this point, you can serve them as is...
...or you can add a little Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley. It's not necessary but it is fabulous and it's how I prefer to
devour eat them.
A note about the cheese: There are two instances in my life in which I use the canister of powdered grated cheese (AKA shaky cheese in my house): pizza & potatoes. You can use the fresh stuff, I love the fresh stuff but there's just something about that powdery grated cheese that works here.
Which Air Fryer?
I have tried a few air fryers and so far this one has been my favorite. I wasn't a huge fan of the toaster oven/all-in-one style.
