Air Fryer Greek Roasted Potatoes are a twist on a classic side dish that’s sure to be a dinner staple! These crispy delectable potatoes are super easy to make with simple ingredients and in 30 minutes or less!
My air fryer definitely gets plenty of love and usage. It’s a fast and simple way to cook and crisp up many of my favorite foods without having to heat up a vat of hot oil or crank up the oven.
One of the things I always make in this kitchen gadget is potatoes, or Greek potatoes to be exact. I love how the “air-fried” spuds turn out crunchy on the outside, creamy on the side, and perfectly seasoned with hardly any effort.
One bite and you’d never want to make roasted potatoes any other way again! Except maybe these slow cooker ranch potatoes.
This lemony Greek potatoes recipe is one you’d want in your back pocket, especially for busy weeknights. Not only is it ready in minutes, but it also uses simple pantry ingredients you probably already have on hand.
- baby potatoes-or regular potatoes cut into cubes
- extra virgin olive oil- swap with melted butter for more flavor
- garlic powder- or fresh minced garlic if available
- lemon juice- freshly squeezed is best
- dried oregano- try other dried herbs such as rosemary, thyme, basil or marjoram
- coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
- chopped fresh parsley- sprinkle as a garnish
- Cut the potatoes in uniform size to ensure even cooking.
- Soak in cold water for a few minutes to remove excess starch which might keep the potatoes from crisping. Make sure to drain well and pat dry after.
- Don’t pile the potatoes too much at once and cook in batches as needed depending on the size of the air fryer.
- Toss the potatoes halfway through cook time to brown all sides.
- Garnish the roasted potatoes with parsley and lemon zest for a pop of color and flavor.
How to serve
- Greek potatoes are a wonderful side dish and go well with just about any main entree for lunch or dinner. They’re also delicious for breakfast served with a plateful of eggs and bacon, sausage, or ham.
- Cool leftovers completely before storing in an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to 3 to 4 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
