Don't throw away your potato peels! Throw them in the air fryer for an unexpectedly tasty treat!
The newest trend on the air frying scene is the simplest yet: fried potato skins. These are not the potato skins that you might be used to - maybe more like a cheese-filled baked potato - these could be described as rustic chips made from peels.
Originally posted on the Share Kmart Air Fryer Recipes Australia Facebook page, the recipe blew up, gaining hundreds of comments in hours, many of which were people saying that they had immediately tried to make them:
"They lasted all of 5 mins. My boys devoured them," said one home cook.
Another wrote, "I did this tonight to with a mix of potato and sweet potato. Is always yummy," posting a photo of their chips.

To make the air fried potato skins, you just need to take the peels and dry them in some paper towel. Then lightly coat them in oil and put them in your air fryer at 180 degrees for 25 minutes, tossing halfway through to ensure even cooking.
Once they're done, season with the flavouring of your choice. While the original poster recommends chicken salt, you can experiment with any combination of herbs and spices.
For the crispiest results, the author also suggests that Royal Blue potatoes yield the best chips.
