  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Wash the baby potatoes and pat them dry with a paper towel.

  4. Add the potatoes to the bowl and toss until they’re evenly coated with the oil and spice mixture.

Tips for Making Air Fryer Baby Potatoes:

  1. Use small baby potatoes: Small baby potatoes are perfect for this recipe because they cook quickly and evenly in the air fryer. If you can’t find small baby potatoes, you can cut larger potatoes into smaller pieces.
  2. Don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket: It’s important to cook the potatoes in a single layer so that they cook evenly and get crispy on all sides. If you overcrowd the basket, the potatoes will steam instead of getting crispy.
  3. Shake the basket: Shaking the basket every 5-7 minutes helps to ensure that the potatoes cook evenly on all sides.
  4. Add your favorite seasonings: Feel free to experiment with different spices and seasonings to make these potatoes your own. Paprika, cumin, and rosemary are all great options.
  5. Serve hot: These potatoes are best served hot, straight out of the air fryer. If you need to keep them warm while you finish cooking the rest of your meal, place them in a low oven (around 200°F) until ready to serve.

If you’re looking to add some extra flavor and texture to your Air Fryer Baby Potatoes, try adding some additional ingredients or toppings. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  1. Parmesan cheese: Grate some fresh Parmesan cheese over the potatoes as soon as they come out of the air fryer. The cheese will melt slightly and add a salty, savory flavor to the dish.
  2. Fresh herbs: Chopped fresh herbs like parsley, chives, or basil are a great way to add a pop of color and freshness to the dish. Sprinkle them over the potatoes just before serving.
  3. Bacon: Cook some bacon in the air fryer before you cook the potatoes. Crumble the bacon and sprinkle it over the potatoes just before serving.
  4. Roasted garlic: Roast some garlic cloves in the air fryer at the same time you’re cooking the potatoes. Mash the roasted garlic and mix it into the olive oil and spice mixture before tossing the potatoes.
  5. Dipping sauces: Serve the potatoes with a side of dipping sauce, such as aioli, sour cream and chive, or honey mustard. These sauces will add a creamy, tangy flavor to the dish.

Air Fryer Baby Potatoes are a versatile and delicious side dish that can be customized to suit your taste preferences. Experiment with different ingredients and toppings to make this dish your own, and enjoy the crispy, tender goodness of these potatoes every time you make them.
