Air Fryer Frozen Roast Potatoes. A delicious air fryer side dish, roast potatoes cooked from frozen in the air fryer are truly crispy and piping hot in the centre.
Air Fryer Frozen Roast Potatoes
Air Fryer Frozen Roast Potatoes is the best. The potato skin is wonderfully crispy, to the point where you and your family will argue over who gets the last roast potato.
As well as this the inside the roast potato is piping hot.
This is a big deal because, when you’re cooking large potatoes in the air fryer, its hard to cook them through without cooking it at a lower temperature.
These frozen roast potatoes are much healthier than the ones that Dominic introduced me to. You see apart from Air Fryer Frozen Fish & Chips I would say that roast potatoes are his favourite comfort food.
He would make me roast potatoes from scratch and roast them in the oven with more butter than he would admit to. Then load them up with a lot of baked beans and cheese and they were truly amazing.
But I am sure there were more than 1500 calories per portion and something I wish was zero calories but isn’t. But if you made our frozen roast potatoes in the air fryer you could add baked beans and cheese and I bet it would be a LOT LESS calories.
Cooking Frozen Roast Potatoes In The Air Fryer
There are 2 different temperature options when it comes to cooking frozen roast potatoes in the air fryer. Dominic and I often argue over which one is best and we have the same argument when it comes to air fryer frozen French fries too.
Frozen Roast Potatoes Option #1 – Dominic’s Method
Cooking frozen roast potatoes in the air fryer for 15 minutes at a medium temperature. Check on the frozen roast potatoes halfway through, give them a shake and that is it!
Frozen Roast Potatoes Option #2 – Samantha’s Method
Cooking frozen roast potatoes in the air fryer on low for 10 minutes, followed by 5 minutes on high. This allows the frozen roast potatoes to be crispy on the outside and pipping hot in the middle. Often roast potatoes need a higher temperature for the crispy skin.
Though through this air fryer roast potatoes recipe today, we will be showing you Dominic’s method as it is hands free and easier!

To cook frozen roast potatoes in the air fryer, requires no complicated kitchen accessories just your air fryer and your air fryer basket that comes with the air fryer.

Though I love to have my roast potatoes with rosemary and a bit more salt. So, once my roast potatoes beeped, I added some salt and rosemary to them.
Healthy Air Fryer Frozen Roast Potatoes
When I am feeling frugal and buy some potatoes on clearance I blanche them in the Instant Pot, freeze them with a little extra virgin olive oil and it’s a cheaper and healthier alternative to purchasing frozen roast potatoes.
You could do the same. You could also swap the white potatoes for sweet potatoes if you’re on Paleo.
I also know many people that do this with sweet potatoes that they have purchased when they were in season.
