Air Fryer Potato Slices have crispy edges and fluffy middles. It only takes 10 minutes to prep and 25 minutes to cook. It's a great side dish for any weeknight meal!
Air fryers perfectly crisp up the edges of the potato slices and leave the middle soft and fluffy. They also cook in a fraction of the time compared to cooking in the oven.
These are so easy to make you'll be able to get them on the table in no time. They are the perfect side dish for chicken or burgers.

Salt: adjust to your taste
Garlic Powder: adds a little garlic flavor, but not too much
Pepper: adds spice
Paprika: for color and flavor
Cayenne Pepper: a pinch of spice

🔪 How to Make Potato Slices in an Air Fryer
1. Cut: Wash and peel the potatoes. Cut them into ¼ inch slices.
2. Season: Add the potatoes to a bowl with olive oil and seasoning. Toss until the potatoes are evenly coated.
3. Cook: Cook at 400F for 25-28 minutes. Shake every 10 minutes to ensure all the slices are cooked evenly and get crispy.
4. Serve: Garnish with parsley when they are done and serve
🥡 How to Store
Let the potato slices cool completely and store them in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to 4 days.
To reheat, use the reheat settings on your air fryer.
Cook them at 400F for 20-25 minutes.
Yes, it's okay. We are cooking them long enough, and shaking the basket frequently enough, that every slice will be able to cook through and get crispy.
👩🍳Tips & Tricks
Try to cut the potatoes as uniformly as possible so they all cook evenly.
Don't make them any smaller than ¼ inch. You'll be getting into chip territory at that point.
