Air Fryer Baby Potatoes
Can I use the word “foodgasm”? The hubby isn’t looking right now and hates that word, maybe that is why he doesn’t like Instagram?
Well it perfectly describes these air fryer truly crispy baby potatoes. They just taste so good that you want to eat them all day and every day.
Its that moment when you want the skin of the potato to be so crispy that it almost pops the potato open but doesn’t.
When the skin of the baby potatoes is wrinkled with crispy texture and you try them and wish you didn’t have to share them with anyone.
I was really upset when I first made these air fryer baby potatoes because I had made just enough for a picture in one of my favourite dishes.
This meant that I had to wait until Dominic had finished taking all the pictures before I could dive and eat some.
How wrong is that?
Next time instead of making 500g of baby potatoes in the air fryer, I should increase it to 750g and then I can eat as he photos!
It also passed the kids anti skin problem too. They remove the skin from everything, even sausages and refuse to it. BUT they will beg me for my chicken skin.
Well today, they didn’t seem to notice that there was skin on the baby potatoes and they went straight in and binged on them until they were all gone.
Air Fryer Baby Potatoes Recipe
The first thing I will say about cooking baby potatoes in the air fryer, is to aim for a similar size. You don’t want to have some of them cooked and then the others to still be hard in the middle.
I opened my bag of baby potatoes and glanced through them until I had sorted them into the ones that didn’t need slicing in half and that I knew would cook well.
After I had decided which of my baby potatoes I wanted to cook with, I mixed them in a bowl with a simple marinade.
I live on the Mediterranean and its all about the simple ingredients that make food taste so, so good.
For my baby potatoes marinade it included:
Steak seasoning gives it that rustic flavour and reminds me of the baby potatoes you often get served with steak in steak restaurants in Spain and Portugal. But you can replace this with black pepper or a taco seasoning if you prefer.
Whole30 Air Fryer Baby Potatoes
I love the fact that, unlike the classic Paleo diet, that on the Whole30 diet you can have white potatoes. Well this is a great idea for having alongside your grass fed beef or your organic chicken.
They are tossed in extra virgin olive oil and then seasoned.
You could also use this same marinade on your vegetables and cook them in the air fryer too.
How Long To Cook Baby Potatoes In The Air Fryer?
I have found that 17 minutes is the perfect amount of time if the air fryer is not preheated. But if your air fryer is already warm, then reduce it down to 15 minutes.
You must also remember that not all baby potatoes are the same size, so stick a fork into the biggest one, and if it is not quite soft enough then add another 2-3 minutes.
