How to make air fryer potato patties recipe

  1. First, peel the potatoes, cut them into 2-3 cm side pieces and boil them in plenty of salted water for about 20 minutes or until tender.
  2. Transfer them to a bowl and, while they are still hot, mash them with a fork to reduce them to a puree. Let cool.
  3. Once the potatoes are cold, add the egg, Parmesan cheese, chopped parsley, grated nutmeg, salt and pepper and mix everything well.
  4. Incorporate the breadcrumbs a little at a time bearing in mind that it will take about ten minutes before you realize you have obtained the right consistency. Our advice therefore is to add a little, mix and wait for it to absorb before adding more. Patience is the secret to these and all meatballs.
  5. Then form meatballs about the size of an apricot and flatten them with your hands. As they are ready, roll them in breadcrumbs and place them in the fryer basket.
  6. Sprinkle them with a little oil and cook them at 180°C for 20 minutes , turning them halfway through cooking and spraying the other side as well. Serve after letting them cool for 10-15 minutes.
