Healthy Air Fryer Fried Potatoes and Onions

Serving Size:
1/2 cup
30 minutes


  • 1.5 pounds of potatoes, halved or quartered
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons of your favorite herb seasoning (like rosemary or thyme)
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F for about 5 minutes.
  2. While the air fryer is preheating, place the potatoes and onions in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and your chosen herbs. Add minced garlic if using. Toss until everything is well coated.
  3. Once preheated, transfer the potatoes and onions into the air fryer basket. Be sure to spread them out in a single layer for even cooking.
  4. Cook for about 15 minutes. Shake the basket occasionally to ensure they cook evenly. Cook for another 5-10 minutes or until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy. The onions should also be nicely caramelized.
  5. Transfer the potatoes and onions to a serving dish and garnish with fresh parsley.
