Potatoes are a key side dish for pretty much any meal, and TikTok user AlexHird has just shared a hack that guarantees the crispiest roast potatoes in just 20 minutes using only an air fryer and one secret ingredient.
The method has taken the internet by storm, with over 1.1 million views and counting, even if the potatoes aren't the typical kind you’d use for a roast…
AlexHird's secret ingredient is tinned potatoes. Yep, tinned potatoes! But give it a second before you turn away because we’re not going to lie… these look pretty damn good for tinned potatoes.
First drain and dry off the potatoes with a paper towel before seasoning them with a combination of salt, pepper, smoked paprika, and garlic powder, then lightly spray them with olive oil before tossing them in the air fryer for 20 minutes at 190 degrees Celsius.
But heads up! If you're gonna try this hack, just be careful because if the air fryer gets too hot, those little spuds might just go "boom!" To prevent that from happening, make sure to poke some holes in them to release the pressure.
So why not give it a try? Who knows, you may discover a new favourite side dish.
