Sliced Potatoes In Air Fryer
I have always had a thing for sliced potatoes. Many years ago, when Dominic and I first set up home together, I used to replace aubergine in a moussaka with sliced potatoes.
This is because aubergines were too expensive, and I could get some cheap potatoes and use them instead. Plus, Dominic, like most blokes would choose potatoes over aubergine, so he was happy!
I also loved to decorate the top of a casserole with some yummy, sliced potatoes and it made the casserole even more special. If you follow a gluten free diet you can use it as a replacement of pasta in lasagne recipes.

So when I read online that you can not make a slow cooker Lancashire hotpot, I was like….have they not heard of an air fryer for making those sliced potatoes all crispy?
I cooked the slow cooker Lancashire hotpot and loaded my favourite potato slices into the air fryer and then placed them on top.
Edit: Before I get a zillion emails and comments asking what a Lancashire hotpot is, you can read about it here, but basically it is a lamb stew from northern England topped with sliced potatoes.
Then I was in the middle of prepping the slow cooker, when I got an email from a subscriber for a recipe for air fried sliced potatoes and thought there would be nothing better, than to take the behind the scenes picture as I made Lancashire hotpot and share it with you.
