I’m here to normalize carbs. And if I need to lure you back to the carby side of life with a plate of perfectly roasted ranch potatoes, then I’ll do it!

Ready in 30 minutes thanks to the magic of the air fryer, they’re perfect, crispy, and like heaven at the end of the fork.

If you don’t already have an air fryer, you can find an oven-roasted version in this Skillet Fried Potatoes recipe.

What would you serve with these crispy potatoes? There are so many options! I’m a sucker for a perfect Paleo Roast Chicken or Roasted Greek Chicken Thighs. And for a veggie, I would do Roasted Frozen Broccoli, Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts or Air Fryer Cauliflower.

Can You Put Raw Potatoes in the Air Fryer?

Yes, you sure can! Think of an air fryer as a countertop convection oven. It’s going to roast and crisp your food to perfection, including raw potatoes.

Are Air Fryer Potatoes Healthy?

These use considerably less oil than deep-fried potatoes or even oven-roasted potatoes. I don’t think a quality cooking oil is bad by any means, but if you limit those things in your diet, you’re still going to love these potatoes.

How Do You Cook Potatoes in an Air Fryer

Cut your potatoes to the desired size. I like to use red potatoes and I don’t peel them. It makes this dish easier to prep, they’re healthier, and that skin crisps up like a dream.

Combine the potatoes, olive oil, and seasonings in a mixing bowl (this is the bowl I use at least daily!), tossing to coat.

This is one of those recipes where I do recommend you preheat your air fryer. It helps the spuds start cooking immediately, resulting in that perfect crispy exterior.

Spray the inside of the air fryer with olive oil (I use my Misto) and add your potatoes. Cook for 15 minutes and then shake the basket to mix the potatoes around. Cook for an additional 10-15 minutes or until they have reached your desired level of crispy.

Pro Tips/Recipe Notes

  • Serve leftovers with some Make-Ahead Scrambled Eggs for an awesome breakfast skillet. Want to add some meat? Try baking bacon in the oven or this Whole30 Breakfast Sausage.
  • If you’d like the potatoes to cook faster, cut the pieces small; almost diced. Check after 10 minutes of cooking.
  • These seasonings are what I use in my Greek Yogurt Ranch. Might as well whip up a batch while you have everything out of the spice cupboard.
  • If you’d like to use fresh garlic instead of garlic powder, add it at the halfway cooking point to avoid it burning. You might also love using Air Fryer Roasted Garlic for a more mellow garlic flavor.
  • You can cook the spuds ahead of time as part of your easy healthy meal prep. To reheat, pop them back into the air fryer for 5 minutes at 400 degrees F.
