So, I just bought an air fryer a couple of weeks ago and I absolutely love it. One of the first things I made was potato chips and they turned out amazing! I loved this recipe because it turns a traditionally unhealthy snack into a healthy option and they are super easy to make.
What will you need?
* An air Fryer
* 2 potatoes
* Knife or a mandolin
* Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Optional)
* Sea salt (optional)
1. Wash the potatoes.
You can either peal the potatoes or just make sure you wash them really good. I chose to use the rough side of a sponge to wash the potatoes really good.
2. Cut the potatoes.
I have a food processor with a mandolin attachment where I just slid the potato back and force and it sliced it into the perfect sized pieces. However, if you do not have a mandolin, you could easily use a good knife and cut the potato into as thin of slices as you can.
3. Soak the potatoes.
Next, you will want to soak the potatoes in cold water for 30 minutes. You can change the water halfway through for the best results but that is not necessary. After the 30 minutes, drain the water from the potatoes.
4. Drizzle olive oil and sea salt over the potatoes.
Before you add the potatoes into the air fryer, you can drizzle a little olive oil and sea salt on top and mix them around to add some additional flavor. You could also add any other spices that you might like such as onion powder, garlic powder, or dill. Make sure you mix everything up good so it is spread out evenly.
5. Add to air fryer and start cooking
Now you can add your potatoes to your air fryer and cook them. You will want to follow the instructions on your fryer as they can be different, but I cooked mine on 392 degrees for 20 minutes. If you do not use a potato chip rack you will want to make sure you shake the potatoes often because otherwise they stick together and do not get crispy all the way.
My potato chips turned out super crispy and tasted amazing. If you don’t like your chips as crispy, you can also cut back the time you fry them and if you like them crispier, you can add more time! What I love about this recipe the most is that you have the freedom to make potato chips exactly how you like them.
