Airfryer Roast Potatoes Recipe and Tips!

Airfryer Roast Potatoes Recipe – I love my airfryer and have used it a great deal over the last 7 years.  Another favourite of mine is this Airfryer chips recipe.  One question that pops up all the time is how to do the best air fryer roast potatoes. Now, there is more than one answer but I shall try to cover all bases!

Slimming World Style Airfryer Roast Potatoes

I bought my first airfryer when I was following the Slimming World diet, so it was really bought from a healthy eating point of view.

To make roast potatoes with the least calories then you need to use Fry Light or a similar low cal oil spray. Peel your potatoes like normal and cut into roast potato size chunks. Then, once you have popped them into your airfryer give them a liberal coating of Fry Light. It’s just one calorie a squirt so you don’t have to be sparing. Then, simply set the airfryer off at 200°C to do it’s work. I find they take around 25 minutes to cook, but usually check after around 20 minutes and then judge it from there.

Once they are finished you will have light, golden potatoes, crunchy on the outside and fluffy inside. Low calorie and very filling.  If you are following Slimming World then these are considered syn free roast potatoes.

Tefal Actifry Roast Potatoes

If you are looking for good, healthy roast potatoes but are not being as strict on the calorie front, then a good glug of Olive Oil (extra virgin for the best taste) is what I recommend. Depending what style of airfryer you have you can approach this in two ways. If you have a Tefal Actifry then you can put your potatoes in the pan and then drizzle your olive oil over the top before setting them off. This works well as the Tefal Actifry has a solid bottom with a rotating paddle that constantly stirs, turning the potatoes over and over in the oil as it does so.  I really prefer the Tefal Actifry from this point of view as it stops the potatoes drying out.

If you have the Tower Air Fryer or similar style like my Von Shef airfryer then I would put the potatoes into a bowl first.  Then drizzle them with olive oil before tossing them so they are fully covered before adding the potatoes to the air fryer.  

You can add some salt and pepper at this stage or something more interesting like garlic salt or celery salt.

From there, as before cook at 200°C for 20-25 minutes.  Then at the end you’ll find crunchy and tasty roasted potatoes.

If you are feeling very decadent and are not looking for very low calorie roast potatoes, then consider adding some duck fat or beef dripping to the potatoes.  This really gives the taste of having been cooked with the Sunday roast.  This will only really work with the Actifry style airfryer with the paddle as the fat is drained off through the holes of the Tower style airfryers.  Another tip for added flavour to the airfryer potatoes would be to add a couple of cloves of peeled garlic in for some lovely garlicky roast potatoes.
