Crispy and tender, easy air fryer baby potatoes are a healthier take on a classic side dish without compromising taste or texture. Cooks in just 20 minutes.


Ingredients

  • 1 lb. baby potatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (or Old Bay seasoning)
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper (or to taste)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the air fryer at 375 F for 5 minutes.
  2. Place all ingredients into in a large mixing bowl. Toss to combine.
  3. Transfer potatoes into the air fryer basket and arrange them in a single layer or slightly overlapping. Air fry at 375°F for 20-22 minutes shaking the basket halfway through, until the potato skins are golden brown and tender. Insert a fork to check doneness. If you can easily insert a fork, then it's fork tender and ready.

Notes

Equipment used: air fryermeasuring cups and spoons, and mixing bowl.

How to double the recipe: If you double or triple the recipe, you may have to make it in a few batches. To get crispy baby potatoes, you will need to arrange them in the air fryer basket in a single layer. If you start stacking them up and overcrowding the basket, they will not cook evenly and you may not get that crispy texture.

How to make in the oven: Yes, you can make this easily in the oven. Spread the fries in an even layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for 35-40 minutes at 425 F, until fork tender

How to store: Transfer into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

How to reheat: Transfer into a 300F preheated air fryer basket and heat for 5-10 minutes, or in the oven until warmed through.
