Potato Dinner Idea

There are SO Many potato varieties to choose from, they’re in stores year round, and cheap too. If you want something traditional you can certainly make mashed potatoes but we have a lot more favorites here too. That one uses many other ingredients to make them creamy and smooth.

If you wanted less prep work and a healthier choice I would go with our air fryer fingerling potatoes that are just slice din half. We love them all but typically use russets or red more frequently. Let us know below which one becomes your new favorite dish. 😉

How Long to Air Fry Potatoes

That depends on how large they are, or if they’re diced. These are the ingredients you’ll need for diced red potatoes cooked this way. If you want to make air fryer fried potatoes you can use any color really but the skin on these stays in tact well and they’re a bit firmer.

  1. Red potatoes
  2. Olive oil
  3. Garlic salt
  4. Salt and pepper to taste
  5. Fresh dill
  6. Oregano
  7. Thyme
  8. Any other seasonings 

Now the most popular are probably these air fryer baked potatoes. Simple but totally delicious. Plain or stuffed with our famous chili recipe they’re always a winner. Or choose to make sweet potato in an air fryer as a sweet side dish.

How Long to Air Fry Potatoes

This has to do with how large they are, but the longest would be 45 minutes max for the largest and thickest. These are great for crispy potato skins, but fluffy insides cooked in no time at all. They’re just like you’d get at a nice steakhouse.

  1. Russet potatoes
  2. Sea salt
  3. Olive oil
  4. Paper towel to dry outsides after being washed
  5. Fork to poke skin

Now if you want to make these cheesy with bacon and all the goodness, you should make these air fryer Hasselback potatoes next.

I know!!! They look amazing right?? Well they are and as you know if you’ve made these in the oven, you can really load them up with toppings. Bacon and cheddar cheese are our favorites but the list goes on and on.

How many different kinds of potatoes are there?

There are more than 200 types in the United States. You can even get a medley in a bag. We used these with our roasted potatoes in air fryer recipe.

  • There are: russet, red, white, yellow, blue or purple, fingerling and petite varieties available. They are all wonderful if you ask me. You can find small bags of these mixed which is what I use to make pesto potatoes.

Then you’ll want to make air fryer french fries from scratch. They’re so good! If you’re in a hurry you can also cook a batch of frozen french fries in an air fryer

Crispy air fryer potatoes

I kid you not, they’re so much better than on a cookie sheet, Crockpot Sweet Potatoes or in your oven! Crispy doesn’t even describe them, and it takes no time at all to be done and perfect.

  • You need nothing else other than the bag of fries themselves. Set to 400 degrees, put in air fryer and cook in 10 minutes total.
  • Do you need to preheat an air fryer? Well it is not going to not work if you don’t but I would suggest that you do.
    • the reason is that the food will cook more evenly if the temperature is steady and not taking time to heat up to begin with.

If you want to go all out with homemade air fryer french fries you just need potatoes, toss to coat in olive oil, garlic powder, season with salt and enjoy. Serve them with our fry sauce recipe, they go with anything!

Some prefer to soak them in a large bowl of water for a while before cooking. This decreases the starch level and may make them crispier. Similar to this one but with some meat, we made air fryer spam and potatoes the other day!

Air fryer spam and potatoes

Don’t curl your nose up on this one until you’ve tried it!! This meat is quite popular in Hawaiian dishes and eaten in small amounts with this favorite veggie is really tasty!

  1. Can of SPAM
    1. sliced like you see above
    2. there are many varieties out there, this is the traditional style
  2. 4 medium potatoes
    1. we used russets
    2. diced as you see above
  3. Olive oil
  4. Garlic salt
  5. Basil
  6. Oregano
  7. Salt and pepper to taste

Best results are made with almost all of these when you shake the basket half way or a third of the way through your air frying cook time. Like roasted potatoes may cook for 15 minutes but should shake every 5 minutes to get them crispy all over.

Air fryer potatoes and sausage

If kielbasa is more your style, we have air fryer sausage and potatoes too! I like a mixture of “regular” and spicy so you get a little heat, but it isn’t overwhelming. 

  1. Your air fryer basket
    1. remember to always keep it to one layer and not overlap ingredients
  2. Pre cooked sausages or kielbasa
  3. Yellow or white onion
  4. Potatoes
    1. red or russet are great, diced
  5. Olive oil
  6. Minced garlic
  7. 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  8. Salt and pepper
  9. Could add cajun seasoning or Sriracha powder for heat
