Yes, you read it right…twice cooked potatoes, first boiled and then air-fried…the texture is amazing, creamy on the inside and crispy on the outside…
Despite being cooked twice there is not a recipe to follow…just boiled the potatoes in water with a bit of salt, drain and then toss some olive oil and freshly chopped rosemary or whatever herbs you are up to…place them on the air-fryer and voila…
These potatoes are delicious, slightly crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside making them perfect as a side dish. In this recipe I used the golden and red small potatoes.
– What is an air-fryer?
As the name suggests, it uses air, hot air to cook and yes, it mimics the deep oil fryer, well, almost…the air-fryer will not work when using wet batter, with that said, it is amazing with all kind of dry coat food.
– Why use an air-fryer?
Air fryer required non or very little oil. In my experience when cooking food that contain fat naturally such as chicken, there is no need to add any oil. As for vegetables, a spray of oil will do.
– Why you should try this recipe…
Well, this is almost a no-recipe post…no secret and super easy…
- Potatoes (as many or as little you want)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Olive oil
- Fresh rosemary (or any herbs you like such as oregano, thyme, or a combination)
Bring enough water to boil to cover the potatoes. Carefully add the potatoes and salt. Bring the water to boil again and lower the heat to simmer. Cook until the potatoes are tender and easily pierce by a fork.
Remove them from the heat and drain the water. Let is cool and peel the skin off.
In the meantime, preheat the air-fryer to 375oF.
In a bowl add the potatoes, drizzle of olive oil, salt, pepper and the fresh chopped rosemary. Toss gently.
Place the potatoes in the air-fryer basket and “fry” until golden brown. Gently shake the basket in between to accomplish even color.

Did you know that potatoes are rich in vitamin C? The controversial about potatoes being unhealthy lays totally on the method of cooking. Potatoes are healthy food when cooked properly and contain other vitamins such as A and B, also minerals.
You know, one of my favorite breakfast restaurants does potatoes like this … and they’re amazing! They’re so glorious on the inside, and so delicious, that could eat them as a main dish rather than merely as a side.
Dear Juliana, I love creamy on the inside and crispy on the outside – these potatoes are definitely calling my name! And the addition of rosemary to your potatoes is always delicious!
They look great. While I don’t have an air fryer I do something similar using a pot with a tiny bit of oil for the second cooking.
These browned beautifully Juliana! Love “fried” potatoes (who doesn’t)!
absolutely delicious Juliana ! I love potatoes!!
We were gifted an air fryer by our daughter and son-in-law for Christmas this year and I can’t wait to try these, Juliana. Great idea!
Juliana, Adore potatoes and the air fryer recipes. Bought it during Christmas and i love using it for so many things.
That is a fun way to make potatoes in the air fryer that are not fries. Will have to give this a try, I got a small one at Christmas. Hope you are having a great week!
Wow, these potatoes look so crisp and tempting!! I think it’s time I purchase an air fryer!!!
Seriously need to get one of these air fryers. What brand do you use? Love the little crispy bits on the edge of your potatoes. BTW, do you have an e-mail signup for notification of when you have new recipes? Take Care
Who doesn’t like potatoes! We really love them — they add so much to most meals. These look great — loads of flavor. Thanks!
They look perfectly crisp and I love the combo of rosemary and potato.
