Baby Potatoes in the Air Fryer

When I got my air fryer I did not expect the food I would be making most often in it was little potatoes.

I seriously have become reliant on this side dish at least one night a week. It is so easy and very crowd pleasing.

These baby potatoes only take a couple minutes to prep and they come out of the air fryer absolutely perfect. Crisp flavorful salt covered outsides open up into a soft and creamy potato inside. You seriously cannot go wrong.

Next time you are at the store just grab bag of the ‘The Little Potato Company’, you know the super handy pre-washed baby potatoes and you are basically almost done with the recipe. (The Little Potato Company is not a sponsor, I’m honestly just a huge fan).

Then besides the potatoes everything you need should already be at home!

Ingredients needed to make the best air fryer baby potatoes.

Instructions to Air Fry Baby Potatoes

Start by preheating your air fryer to 390º F, running the machine at least 3 minutes. I have a Ninja Max XL but this recipe should easily fit into any size air fryer.

While the air fryer is preheating add your baby potatoes, olive oil, salt, garlic powder, & onion powder to a large bowl. Mix to coat the potatoes evenly.

Once the air fryer is ready add the seasoned potatoes to the air fryer. Cook at 390º F for 20 minutes. Shake basket to move the potatoes around every 4-5 minutes.

When done remove the potatoes promptly from the basket and serve immediately.

Tips, Tricks, & Questions

Can you put raw potatoes into an air fryer?

Yes! The air fryer heats up quickly and moves the air around faster than an oven, making the potatoes cook even faster than if you were to try to roast them in a conventional oven.

Will this recipe fit in my air fryer?

It should! These potatoes don’t take up to much room, it should fit all size of air fryer.

Can I reheat these?

Yep, the best way I have found is to actually use the air fryer again. Preheat the air fryer to 350º and cook about 5 minutes or until hot again.
