10 Minute Crispy Potato Peels

10 minute crispy potato peels are my favorite way to enjoy a healthier snack which in my opinion, tastes better than chips! This recipe happens to be my most beloved snack that I have been making for years. The potato peels are the best part of the potato but most people don’t know how good they taste and throw them away. I promise you, you will never wan to do that again once you try this recipe. These crispy potato skins are perfect with sour cream, tzatziki or any creamy dip.

  • the peels of 5-6 yellow potatoes any potatoes you enjoy
  • drizzle of olive oil

  • Peel the potatoes and wash and dry the peels well.
  • Add them to a bowl with the oil and seasonings and toss.
  • Air-fry at 380F for 9-10 minutes tossing halfway through.
  • Enjoy with sour cream or any dip.


You can use any creamy dip you like or any potatoes you enjoy. You can make these in the oven at 400-425F until crispy, just keep an eye on them. I like to bake them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for about 20-25 minutes. Make sure the peels are washed and fully dry.
You can pat them dry with a paper towel. Feel free to use any seasonings you enjoy. I will link my air-fryer in this blog post but any will work.
