Prepping the Baby Potatoes for the Air Fryer

To make these Rosemary Air Fryer Baby Potatoes you will need:

  • Baby gold or medley potatoes. You can use baby gold, baby red, or a medley. Some medleys include purple potatoes, too! Fingerling potatoes would also be great for this recipe! You’ll leave the skin on, and half each potato.
  • Fresh Rosemary. We’re going for bold Rosemary flavor, so fresh is best for this recipe.
  • 3 Fresh garlic cloves, minced or smashed with a garlic press.
  • Coarse Kosher Salt.
  • Fresh ground Black Pepper.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
  • Melted butter.

Cooking the Mini potatoes in the air fryer

This recipe is super simple to pull together any night of the week. With a little prep, and a few easy steps:

Step 1: Preheat your air fryer

Preheat your air fryer prior to prep. This way, it’s nice and hot when your potatoes are ready to go! A preheated air fryer will help you achieve evenly browned, crispy potatoes.

Step 2: Prep the ingredients

Clean and dry your potatoes, and cut them in half. Cut your rosemary and mince or press your garlic. Add your prepped ingredients to a medium bowl.

Step 3: Coat the potatoes

Once all your ingredients are in the bowl, give everthing a nice toss to make sure the potatoes are well coated.

Step 4: Air Fry ‘Em!

Cook your potatoes in the preheated air fryer, and be sure to check on them and give them a stir or shake at the halfway mark to ensure even browning.

Step 5: Finish and Serve

Plate your crispy potatoes, and sprinkle the top with a bit more coarse salt and fresh chopped rosemary, to really bring out the flavors.

What kind of baby potatoes should I use?

You can use baby gold potatoes (my favorite), baby red potatoes, or a baby potato medley. Some medleys include purple potatoes, too! Fingerling potatoes also work well.

Aim for potatoes with relatively uniform shape and size, for even cooking. Got a huge one in the bag? Feel free to cut that one onto quarters.

Finishing and serving the air fryer potatoes

When the potatoes are done, I like to pour them right out of the air fryer while they are nice and hot into a serving bowl or onto a platter. Sprinkle the finished potatoes with a bit more coarse salt and fresh rosemary to really make the flavors pop!
