Ingredients

Potatoes:

Russets are the best kind of potatoes to use in this air fryer potato rosti recipe because they contain less moisture, rendering them easier to crisp up in the air fryer.

You can grate the potatoes yourself or use the pre-grated potatoes found in the freezer section to save some time on prep.

Toppings:

There are many toppings that can be added to a potato rosti to enhance its flavor. You can grate some cheese over the rosti while it's still hot and let it melt, crisp up some bacon and crumble it over your air fryer potato rosti, and then top it off with a dollop of sour cream.

Some other ingredients you can consider adding to your air fryer potato rosti are smoked salmon, onion, garlic, basil, and dill.

How to Make Air Fryer Potato Rosti

Step One: 

Wash and peel the potatoes and then grate them.

Step Two: 

Transfer potatoes to a small bowl lined with a kitchen towel to drain excess water from the potato. Failure to remove this water will lead to a soggy rosti.

Step Three: 

Once the excess water has been removed, place the potatoes in a bowl and add seasoning.

Step Four:

Preheat the air fryer to 400F for 5 minutes. Spray cooking spray into a baking dish.

Add potatoes to the baking dish, place it in the air fryer, and air fry for 15 minutes at 350F.

Step Five:

Remove the completed potato rosti from the air fryer.

Tips

  • Grate the potatoes using the large holes of a box grater or a food processor. Squeeze out as much excess moisture as possible using a clean kitchen towel or paper towel. This will help the potato rosti crisp up nicely in the air fryer.
  • Flip your potato rosti halfway through the cooking time to get an even crisp on both sides.

What to Serve With Potato Rosti

This air fryer potato rosti recipe has been traditionally served as a breakfast food, so it pairs really well with some scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, and fluffy pancakes.

However, this air fryer potato rosti can also be served alongside chicken and mushrooms, smoked meatloaf, or pork tenderloin for lunch or dinner.

You can even serve it on its own, topped with some delicious smoked cream cheese and cod.

FAQs

How long can potato rosti leftovers be stored?

Leftover potato rosti can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. It's best to store them in an airtight container or wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil to prevent them from drying out or absorbing any odors from other foods in the refrigerator.

What is the best way to reheat a potato rosti?

When reheating potato rosti, it's important to do so thoroughly to ensure that they are heated all the way through. You can reheat them in the oven, toaster oven, or in a pan on the stove with a little bit of oil or butter. Avoid reheating them in the microwave, as this can make them soggy.

Is this potato rosti gluten-free? Vegan?

This air fryer potato rosti recipe is both gluten-free and vegan-friendly. The best part about this recipe is that you can change it by adding your favorite vegetables, herbs, and spices to suit your taste.

Can I use any other kind of potato in this air fryer potato rosti recipe?

Russet potatoes serve best in this recipe because they have the least moisture. Yellow potatoes are the softest and contain more moisture, so they are harder to crisp up in the air fryer. You can use any kind of potato you want. Just ensure you do your best to eliminate as much moisture as you can before placing them in the air fryer to cook.

    This isn't a real Roesti. I am a Swiss! The basic ratio is: 1/2 schreaded Potatoes, 1/4 Cheese & 1/4 Diced Onions. Depending on your Kanton, the cheese will vary. I use Emmenthaler & Gruyers most of the time. In some Kantons chopped ham or other meat is used. I fry mine with a little butter in a non stick or cast iron pan. Rather than schreading the patatoes raw, par boil them first. The end product will be whiter. Oft times for breakfast we would have left over Roesti in a bowl with Coffee over Plus a little Sugar & a hard cooked egg.
