Servings 3 people



  • 1 - 1 ½ pounds baby, mini or little potatoes
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive or another vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (cajun seasoning works well too)
  • ¼ -½ teaspoon crushed red pepper chili flakes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon pepper


  • Wash and dry baby potatoes with paper towel. If the potatoes are medium sized, cut into half. Get out and measure all of your ingredients.
  • In a large bowl, mix potatoes with spices such as garlic powder, Italian seasoning, red chili flakes, salt, black pepper, and olive oil.
  • Toss them to coat evenly.
  • Transfer the potatoes to air fryer basket and fry at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, toss to adjust the potatoes. Place basket back inside your air fryer.
  • Set timer for another 8 or 10 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown and crispy. I will check at 8 minutes just to see how the potatoes look. If necessary I put the potatoes back in for 2 to 4 more minutes. Unfortunately the exact cooking time will vary depending on the size of the baby potatoes. 
  • Remove the roasted baby potatoes from air fryer basket and serve hot.
  • Serve with your favorite main course or with a dipping sauce. Enjoy every bite!

The Butter Option

  • My friend also melts a few tablespoons of salted butter in her microwave. She places the finished potatoes, into a large bowl, right out of the air fryer, and tosses the finished potatoes with the butter. Sometimes she sprinkles them with pepper and a little salt if she used unsalted butter. Boy oh boy are these potatoes a treat and definitely worth a try!
    In some cases butter makes everything better! 😉 In this case the butter is a treat and I promised her I'd share it with you.
