How To Make Air Fryer Potatoes

Simply toss the chopped vegetables with oil and seasonings, then add them to the basket in a single layer.

Overcrowding will prevent them from crisping properly, so leave space for the air to circulate.

Work in batches until every piece is cooked, and shake the basket about halfway through each frying cycle so everything cooks evenly.

Helpful Tips and Tricks
  • Easy cleanup. You can use foil or parchment paper at the bottom of the basket to prevent the garlic and rosemary from falling through most of the holes. Place it inside with the food, not when it is preheating, and leave some of the outer holes uncovered to allow for circulation. (See your brand’s manual for further instruction regarding foil and parchment paper.)
  • Which oil is best? While any variety with a high smoke point is fine, I particularly like the flavor and crispness that olive oil adds to this red potato recipe.
  • Keep everything warm. If you are working in batches, transfer finished vegetables to a serving dish and cover with foil. Spritz lightly with extra oil as needed to keep them from sticking together.
  • Have leftovers? Transfer them to a sealed container and refrigerate for 3 to 5 days. Reheat in the same appliance to get the skin nice and crispy again.

Serving Suggestions

These are a great addition to almost any meal! Pair them with chicken, steak, pork, and even buttery shellfish.

You can also enjoy them as an easy lunch or afternoon snack. Sprinkle some freshly grated Parmesan over the top to take the flavor up a notch and add a little protein.

What You Will Need To Make Rosemary Potatoes
  • Air Fryer - This one is my favorite! The size is perfect for feeding a family and has more room for larger batches than other brands.
  • Quality Knives - If you only make one kitchen investment, it should be good quality knives. They cut down on prep time and are important for safety as well.

FAQ - Common Recipe Questions

Should I soak the spuds in cold water before cooking?

Typically, this is done for french fries to remove the excess starch, prevent browning, and help them crisp. This step is not necessary for this particular dish.

Can I use different varieties for air fryer potatoes?

While the flavor of reds pair exceptionally well with the fresh rosemary, you can use any kind you have on hand. Just be sure they are cut into 1 ½-inch pieces for this recipe.

Enjoy!

Rosemary Air Fryer Potatoes

Air fryer potatoes use a fraction of the oil to get the same crispy exterior you love. Make this red potato recipe as an easy side tonight!
Prep time: 5 MinCook time: 10 MinTotal time: 15 Min

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds baby red potatoes, washed and dried
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped (about 4 sprigs)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
Garnish
  • finely chopped rosemary and flat leaf Italian parsley

Instructions

  1. Cut potatoes in half (or in quarters if larger) and place in a large bowl.
  2. Add minced garlic, rosemary, salt, and black pepper to the potatoes.Top with olive oil and toss to coat. (Do not add any extra olive oil.)
  3. Meanwhile, preheat the Air Fryer for 3 minutes at 400°F.
  4. Once the Air Fryer is preheated, add a single layer of potatoes to the basket. (If you overcrowd the basket, they will not crisp properly). Set the Air Fryer to 400°F and cook for 8-10 minutes, stopping to shake the basket halfway through your cooking time. Work in batches until all potatoes are cooked.
  5. Transfer potatoes to a serving dish. Garnish with more finely chopped rosemary and freshly chopped flat leaf Italian parsley.
DONNA'S NOTES
  1. You can use foil or parchment paper at the bottom of your air fryer to prevent the garlic and rosemary from falling through most of the holes. Do not place this in your air fryer while it is preheating. Only place it in the air fryer when you have food on top of it. Make sure you leave enough space for the air to circulate, and do not cover all of the holes. (See your air fryer manual for further instruction regarding foil and parchment paper)
  2. If you are working in batches, transfer to a serving dish and cover the finished potatoes with foil. Spritz lightly with olive oil spray if needed.
  3. Leftovers can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
  4. Should I soak the potatoes in cold water before cooking in the Air fryer? Typically this is done for french fries to remove starch from the potatoes, helps prevent browning, and also helps with crisping. This is not necessary for this recipe.
  5. I don’t have red potatoes. Is it ok to use another type? You can use any type of potato. Just make sure they are cut into small 1 ½ inch pieces for this recipe.
  6. Olive oil is the best oil to use for this recipe. It adds flavor and crispness to the potatoes.
