  • First, preheat air fryer to 390 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Wash and pat dry potatoes. Dice into 1 inch cubes.
  • Add diced potatoes to a large bowl. Add in remaining ingredients. Toss until potatoes are completely coated in olive oil and seasonings.
  • Arrange potatoes in a single layer in air fryer basket.
  • Air fry for 15 minutes. Test to see if potatoes are fork tender in the middle. Insert fork into a diced potato. If it goes in and out smoothly, remove potatoes from air fryer. If potatoes are still firm, cook another 5 to 7 minutes or until tender.
  • Finally, remove air fryer basket from air fryer. Serve potatoes with choice of dipping sauce.


  • If you have time, soak potatoes in a bowl of water for up to 1 hour before air frying.  Then pat dry and begin recipe.  This yields extra crispy potatoes but is not necessary in a time crunch.
  • Red potatoes and Russet potatoes tend to do best in an air fryer.  They maintain their shape but get tender in the middle.
  • Feel free to adjust seasonings to suit your taste.
  • My air fryer does a great job of evenly frying everything inside.  If desired, flip potatoes at the 15 minute mark when you test if they are fork tender.
  • Different air fryers have different power levels, so you may need to adjust your cooking time.
  • Store potatoes in the fridge for up to 4 days.
