Airfryer Crispy Roasted Onion Potatoes
You guys know I love Instant Pot recipes, as I have been making more and more of them lately. What you might not realize, is that i use my Airfryer even more than my electric pressure cooker! The fact of the matter is, I typically use my Airfryer for super lazy last minute meals. Whether I’m popping some frozen chicken strips and sweet potato fries or making a mini pizza, it is such a convenient appliance for baking things up quickly and with little fuss. Every now and again, I even use it for a real life recipe like these Airfryer Crispy Roasted Onion Potatoes or Airfryer Baked Thai Peanut Chicken Egg Rolls.
This recipe isn’t something new and inventive by any stretch of the imagination. My mom was making this classic recipe with Lipton Onion Soup Mix in the oven, back when we were children. The difference is, this recipe for Airfryer Crispy Roasted Onion Potatoes uses less oil and is ready in a fraction of the time thanks to the Airfryer technology.
Simply toss your baby red potatoes with olive oil and a packet of the onion soup mix and put them in your Airfryer basket. Bake the potatoes on the highest heat setting for 20 minutes, giving them one toss in the middle of the cooking time. After 20 minutes, you will have beautiful crispy potatoes with perfectly cooked centers ready for a delicious side dish.
I love pairing these Airfryer Crispy Roasted Onion Potatoes with a Pressure Cooker Pork Loin or a simple grilled chicken breast. I recently brought some of these out to guys working in the field with pork loin and they were definitely happy campers!
