Festive Air Fried Potato Recipes for the Holidays

Gather around the table, festive foodies! The holiday season beckons, and nothing says cozy festivities like the golden, crunchy delight of air fried potatoes.

Delicious Holiday Potato Recipe: The Air-Fried Potato Croquettes


  • 4 medium-sized potatoes, boiled and mashed
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup cooked bacon bits (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten


  1. Combine mashed potatoes, cheese, green onions, bacon bits, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Mix until all ingredients are well incorporated.
  2. Form the mixture into small, palm-sized balls. Flatten slightly to shape into croquettes.
  3. Dip each croquette into the beaten egg, then roll in bread crumbs until fully coated.
  4. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C). Place croquettes in the fryer basket in a single layer.
  5. Air fry for 15 minutes or until golden brown, turning them halfway through.
  6. Once cooked, remove and let cool for a couple of minutes. Serve warm.


  • For a vegan alternative, replace cheddar cheese with vegan cheese and omit bacon. Use a flaxseed egg (1 tablespoon flaxseed meal + 2.5 tablespoons water) instead of a regular egg.
  • Spice enthusiasts can add a dash of paprika or cayenne pepper for an extra kick.

Q: Can I use sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes?

A: Absolutely! Sweet potatoes bring a unique flavor and are rich in vitamins. Adjust the frying time as they might cook a bit faster.

The tantalizing aroma of the golden croquettes wafts through the air, inviting you to indulge in this festive delight. With each bite, you experience a crunch followed by a soft, flavorful center. The holidays just got a tad tastier! So, what do you think? Ready to give this recipe a whirl?
