  • 4 large russet potatoes scrubbed clean and dried thoroughly
  • 2 Tbsp avocado oil (or vegetable/canola)
  • 2 tsp kosher salt (if using table salt, reduce the amount by half)
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried parsley optional
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder



  • Preheat air fryer to 400°F.
  • Rub potatoes with oil, then season with salt, pepper, parsley, garlic powder and onion powder, rubbing to make sure the seasoning sticks.

Air fry

  • Place potatoes in an even layer in air fryer basket and air fry at 400°F for 40-50 minutes (depending on the size of your potatoes), turning over halfway through cooking.


  1. Exact cooking time will vary depending on the size of your potatoes (smaller ones taking less time and vice versa).
  2. I find I don't need to poke holes in the potatoes when cooking in the air fryer, but if you feel more comfortable, you certainly can.
  3. All seasonings and oil measurements are to be divided amongst the 4 potatoes.
