Air Fried Baby Red Potatoes

One of the things I’m rarely able to eat is fried potatoes. Greasy, dipped in oil, butter, and one huge stomach ache as a result of eating good stuff.

Here, I go through my recipe using an alternative air fryer that collects all the fat and contents that drip during the processing of air frying. What you get is the same results, just better for your stomach.

Ingredients for air-fried baby red potatoes

  • 2 Tablespoons Garlic salt
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter
  • 4 Medium Sized Baby Red Potatoes
  • Optional: Rosemary, Thyme or whatever garden herbs you grew for summer

Directions to make air-fried baby red potatoes

  1. Wash potatoes off in the sink.
  2. Spray inside of air fryer with cooking spray.
  3. Cut up the baby red potatoes into smaller chunks. (Halve them a few times).
  4. Place 3 tablespoons of soft butter mixed throughout and on top of potatoes. Sprinkle half garlic salt.
  5. Turn the dial on your air fryer to 400* & place the potatoes in the fryer for 15-20 minutes.
  6. Once the 20 minute time is up, stir contents without smashing down the potatoes. Flip them like you would cooking things in a skillet. Sprinkle the other half of the garlic salt on the potatoes at this point.
  7. Re-insert potatoes for 20 more minutes, stir again, and depending on how golden brown you want them, you may want to cook them more or less. *Remember that air fryers drain the fat towards the bottom, so you may find yourself seasoning them with more butter and salt towards the end of their preparation
  8. Let cool for 15-20 minutes, as air fryers can be extremely hot. (I love using mine because it’s also dishwasher safe!)I use 3 more tablespoons of butter because most of the butter has melted to the bottom where everything drains.
  9. A fun idea to garnish your baby reds with herbs grown from your gardens, such as chives or rosemary. (there are also inside grow kits that stores sell that don’t need to be grown outside or in a hot, hot environment).
