If you don't know how to bake a potato you are more of a beginner than I thought! But for those of you new to cooking, here we go.
I am a self-professed gadget queen. The picture on the right are leftover baked potatoes and mushrooms air-fried.
When you use an air fryer for potatoes, those potatoes need do be precooked for the best tasting 'fries'. Whatever baked potatoes I have leftover in my Ziploc at the end of the week, I cut into pieces and air fry.
To get seasoning to adhere to the fries, you can brush them with aquafaba (chickpea cooking or canned water) and sprinkle with no salt seasoning. It takes about 40 minutes to get the crispness I like with my air fryer.
Just remember that when you air fry food you are removing the water so in effect you are making the potatoes about 12% more calorie dense. So I cook whatever I have left over, set aside my usual portion and share the rest.
