This year I decided to do a theme dinner the night we watched our annual Christmas movie “Christmas Vacation”. I had a lot of fun details from the famous moose glass for eggnog, moose ice cubes, the asparagus tree, aunt Bethany’s cat food jello and of course the dry turkey! I
While we did have a steak dinner, I made some potato Christmas trees to tie into our theme. I think you have to lay them down once done to drizzle on more oil or butter then sprinkle on the toppings so they stick better. It still turned out cute and looked like the opening scene where they where out in the snow looking for a tree.
Christmas Potato Trees
(Adapted from The Flexible Fridge)
5 tbsp Large potatoes (Russet potatoes)
1 tsp Salt
½ tsp Dried parsley
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
Begin the recipe by soaking the potatoes in water for 30 mins to get rid of some starch. This will make them super crispy!
Preheat your air fryer to 360 degrees Fahrenheit.
Peel and cut the potatoes into a 3D triangle shape. making sure that the base of the triangle is thick so that it can stand up.
Slice the triangles horizontally. Each slice should be about ¼ inch so that it will cook through evenly. To ensure that your potatoes are not soggy leave a tiny gap between each potato when threading onto the skewers.
Thread the potatoes onto metal or bamboo skewers, spraying lightly with oil in between each potato.
Place the potatoes into the air fryer basket, making sure that they are not touching each other.
Cook for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.
Once the potatoes are cooked, remove from the air fryer and sprinkle with salt, dried parsley,
Parmesan cheese, and any other desired toppings.
