Discover how easy it is to transform simple tinned potatoes into crispy, golden roast potatoes in an air fryer.
Although nothing quite beats the taste of using fresh potatoes to make air fryer roast potatoes, having some cans of potatoes in the cupboard are great to have on standby. And when tinned potatoes are cooked in an air fryer they do come out crispy and golden.
What You Need For Air Fryer Tinned Potatoes
- Tinned potatoes – use any brand of tinned potatoes. Most of them are stored in water, sometimes with salt, so consider this when seasoning them.
- Oil – I used 1 tbsp of olive oil, this helps to crisp up the skin and add some extra flavour. You can use a different oil if you prefer.
- Seasoning – double check the can of potatoes ingredients list to see if they have already been seasoned. I like to add a pinch of salt before air frying them, but this is optional.
- Air fryer – I have cooked canned potatoes in various different models of air fryers, including Ninja and Cosori.
Preparing and Cooking Canned Potatoes In An Air Fryer
Open the tin of potatoes and drain away the water.
Pat the potatoes dry with some kitchen paper.
Drizzle oil over the potatoes and shake about so that they are all covered. Optionally season with salt and pepper, or your choice of seasoning.
Place the prepared potatoes in the air fryer basket and air fry at 190°C for 20 to 25 minutes until they are crispy on the outside.
Check on them a couple of times during the air frying time and give the basket a shake.
And that’s it! A simple and convenient way to cook up some tinned potatoes using an air fryer.
