If you enjoy potatoes and have access to an air fryer, you’re more than likely going to LOVE these little potatoes! We sure do! They are cooked in an air fryer, which is a kitchen appliance that uses super hot circulating air to cook food, using very little oil.

The outside potato peel get all crispy and delicious, yet the inside stays fluffy and soft! These yummy little potatoes are so delicious, and the best part is they’re simple to make, and only take a few minutes to prep! Let me show you how to make this perfect side dish, which pairs well with poultry, fish, beef or pork!

Prepping The Mini Potatoes For The Air Fryer

Preheat your air fryer to 400°F. for 3-4 minutes while you get the potatoes ready to cook. You can use small red or golden potatoes, but if you happen to have both kinds, USE them! Ours came already combined in a bag at our local grocery store.

My favorite way to make this recipe is using both red and gold potatoes. Try to use small potatoes, roughly about the size of a plum for this recipe (and for quickest cooking time). Clean or scrub the outside of the potatoes to remove any dirt, then dry them thoroughly. Slice each potato in half, then place the halves in a mixing bowl.

Red and gold mini potatoes are rinsed clean, then dried and cut in half before seasoning.

Drizzle the potatoes with olive oil, and then add Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper to the potatoes. Toss the potatoes well, so they’re covered with the oil and the spices. That’s it… see how easy the prep work is? Now the mini potatoes are ready to cook!

Into The Air Fryer They Go!

Place the seasoned potato halves into the basket of your air fryer, trying to keep them in a single layer, if possible. Cook them at 400°F for 10 minutes, then remove the basket and stir them or give the basket a good shake.

Cook them for an additional 7-8 minutes, then check to see if they’re done. The outsides should be crispy and lightly browned. Stick a knife into a potato half. If done, the knife should easily glide into the softened insides of the potato. NOTE: If your potatoes are slightly larger in size, please be aware they may require 2-3 more minutes to finish cooking all the way through.

Once done, transfer the hot air fryer crispy mini potatoes to a serving bowl. Generously squeeze fresh lemon juice over the top of the potatoes and gently stir. Sprinkle the top of the potatoes with chopped fresh parsley, and serve the potatoes immediately.
