Not a fan of baby potatoes? Try air frying some sweet potato fries instead! For a low-carb option, I highly recommend roasting some acorn squash.

How To Cook Baby Potatoes In The Air Fryer

Before you start cooking these baby potatoes, make sure to rinse them with some warm water and completely dry them off before seasoning. If you leave them wet, the seasonings won’t stick to them.

Once you are done prepping, add the baby potatoes to a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and Italian seasonings.

Toss the potatoes with your hands until they are evenly coated with olive oil and seasonings!

What To Serve With Air-Fried Baby Potatoes
