Why Make Home Fries in Ninja Speedi

But first, what are home fries?

Home fries are cubed potatoes that are typically pan- or skillet-fried.

It’s a popular side dish in North America for breakfast.

Typically when making Air Fryer French Fries, you would parboil the potatoes first before air frying.

This is why home fries is one of the best Ninja Speedi recipes you can make.

Ninja Speedi can do both steam and air fry in one cooking.

The steaming acts as “parboiling” the potatoes which helps cook off some of the starch and makes a coating that gets air fried for better crispiness.

Can You Use Speedi Recipe on the Ninja Combi?

With the Ninja Combi All-in-One Multicooker, Oven and Air Fryer, you might be wondering if Ninja Speedi recipes will work for the Combi as well.

I don’t have a Ninja Combi, but, on researching the functionalities and customer feedbacks who have both, here are my findings:

  • Ninja Combi seems to be just an updated version of the Ninja Speedi.
  • The Combi basically has the same features as Ninja Speedi.
  • It’s just that Ninja Combi is bigger and in a oven-style, loading from the front instead of the top.
  • Instead of Speedi Meals, you use Combi Meals function.
  • The Speedi has inner pot and crisper tray and the Ninja Combi has a bottom pan and bake tray for the two-level cooking.
  • Whereas the Speedi is good cooking meals for 1-2 people, the Combi is good for families and parties.
  • Customers who have used both Speedi and Combi say the recipes are interchangeable because of the same setup and features.

So it seems like Ninja Speedi Recipes can be Ninja Combi Recipes.

If you’ve tried a recipe in both Speedi and Combi, let me know your experience.
