I got an Actifry as a birthday gift from my parents last summer, and since then I have been having so much fun coming up with all new ways to use it! I always, always make my French fries in it; but recently I have also been making these baby potatoes! They are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside and have a delicious smoky flavor. I love to pair mine with anything from chicken burgers to steak; they are extremely versatile.
I love my Actifry! The biggest benefit is definitely that it is hands-off. An Actifry is an air fryer with a built in paddle that stirs the food while it cooks it. I love that I can just dump some food in there, walk away, and when I come back it is ready to eat. I also love that its healthier than deep frying, but still gets food nice and crispy. It is also convenient not to have to wait for an oven or deep fryer to heat up - you just plug in the Actifry and hit start; it couldn't be easier!
There really isn't much to this recipe - only 6 ingredients:
These are probably the easiest side dish that you can make! Prep time is less than 5 minutes, and the Actifry does the rest!
Step 1: wash and dry your potatoes, then chop them in half
Step 2: place potatoes into Actifry, then drizzle oil followed by seasonings over the top of the potatoes
Step 3: Close the lid, select mode 1, then hit start and adjust the time to 40 minutes
You definitely can make these without an air fryer - and they will be just as tasty! If you would like to use the oven, you simply toss all the ingredients together in a bowl, then spread out on a baking sheet. I like to line mine with parchment paper for easier clean up and to help prevent sticking. Bake in a 450 F oven for about 30-35 minutes, stirring halfway through, or until potatoes are fork-tender.
You can make these potatoes in a regular air fryer - simply wash and cut your potatoes, then toss them with the oil and seasoning. Add them to the air fryer basekt and fry at 400 F for about 25-30 minutes, stirring halfway through.
Yes of course! If you only have large potatoes you can chop them into 1 inch cubes and still make this!
You absolutely can substitute paprika for smoked paprika and the potatoes will still be phenomenal, however they will not have a smoky flavor. I have done them both ways and I prefer to use the smoked paprika, but in a pinch I will substitute with regular.
Place prepared potatoes evenly in the bottom of the Actifry
Drizzle oil over top of potatoes, followed by smoked paprika, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper
Close the lid, then select mode 1 and hit start, then adjust the time to 40 minutes
Once the Actifry finishes, carefully open the lid and serve the potatoes
