Make a batch of Air Fryer Cajun Spuds for a yummy side dish! No air fryer? These well-seasoned potatoes can also be roasted in the oven!
In a small bowl, combine garlic powder, cumin, paprika, onion powder, thyme, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper. Stir to combine. Set seasoning mix aside.
Wash and dry potatoes well to remove any dirt or sprouts. Cut potatoes into bite-sized chunks, leaving peel ON the potatoes. Place potatoes in a medium bowl.
Drizzle olive oil over potatoes. Toss or stir well, so all potatoes have oil on them. Sprinkle all of the spice mix over potatoes. Toss or stir well, to distribute spices and coat all potatoes with seasoning.
USING AN AIR FRYER? Preheat air fryer to 400°F. Arrange seasoned potatoes in a single layer in the basket. Cook for approx. 9 minutes. Turn potatoes to other side; continue cooking potatoes for another 7-8 minutes (on average). TIP: Two things can affect your cooking time. 1) Temperatures in air fryers can fluctuate with different models, and 2) The size of the potato chunks can vary between users, so this cooking time is a guide. Test potatoes for doneness, by inserting a sharp knife into the middle of a potato chunk. When done, they should be crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Transfer to serving bowl, and enjoy!
USING AN OVEN? Preheat oven to 350°F. Place a sheet of parchment paper or aluminum foil onto a baking sheet. Add and arrange the potato chunks, keeping them in a single layer. Cook at 350°F. for approx. 25-30 minutes, turning them half way through baking time. Test for doneness by inserting a knife into one of the chunks. When done, Cajun spuds should be crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Transfer to serving bowl, and enjoy!
