Ingredients

Air fryer rosemary potatoes are and easy recipe. All you need are the following ingredients:

YUKON GOLD POTATOES: These are small potatoes. If you haven’t used them before, they’re simply mini gold potatoes. Other options besides Yukon golds that work well are baby red potatoes or fingerling potatoes for different flavors. Keep in mind that these other potatoes may require a different cook time. Just make sure to cut your potatoes in even sizes. They should be about 1-inch pieces.

OLIVE OIL: Used to help get those crispy potatoes you’re looking for. You can use vegetable oil spray or avocado oil spray too.

FRESH ROSEMARY: Finely chopped fresh rosemary gives these potatoes that extra zing! You can also substitute with dried rosemary if needed, but fresh is better. For other flavors, I bet Italian seasoning, fresh thyme or really any fresh herbs would complement your rosemary too.

SALT AND BLACK PEPPER: I like using flakey sea salt and ground pepper. Kosher salt will work just as well. Use whichever you have on hand.

GARLIC POWDER: Gives a nice flavor, you can adjust to use more or less as desired. Also try adding a dash of onion powder if you like an added onion flavor.

How to Make Air Fryer Rosemary Potatoes

It only takes 4 easy steps to create this simple side dish. Here are the step-by-step instructions:

STEP 1: Wash and dry your potatoes with a paper towel. The dryer, the better. This will help them get crispier in the air fryer.

STEP 2: Finely chop fresh rosemary.

STEP 3: Next, cut potatoes in half and place them in a large bowl.

STEP 4: Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes and sprinkle them with rosemary, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Toss the potatoes to coat them evenly with the oil and spices and herbs.

STEP 5: Preheat the Air Fryer to 400°F. Preheating usually takes 1-2 minutes depending on your air fryer model.

STEP 6: Place seasoned potatoes in the Air Fryer basket in a single layer. You may need to work in batches if making a large amount.

STEP 7: Cook them for 15 minutes, flipping halfway through to cook both sides. I usually shake the basket vigorously to move the potatoes around.

Note: Cooking time will vary based on your make and model of fryer, your choice of potatoes, and the size you cut them. Larger potatoes will need more cooking time.

Place the in a serving bowl and let your family dip out their individual portions.

Variations

  • If you want spicy potatoes to go with your main dish, add a little cayenne pepper.
  • Use small new potatoes as an alternative.

Are Air Fryer Rosemary Potatoes Healthy?

Yukon Gold potatoes are high in potassium and vitamin C which does make them a great healthy side dish for getting in your vitamins.

Overall, air fried potatoes aren’t a super healthy recipe simply because they do have a high amount of carbohydrates (like all potatoes).

But they are a healthier, good alternative to some typical ways of cooking potatoes or frying them. They’re a lot lower in fat due to less oil being used and their certainly healthier than deep fried french fries!

How to Store

If you have any golden brown potatoes leftover, you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week.

Make sure they cool completely before storing so no condensation forms in the container.

How to Reheat Potatoes

To reheat your cooked potatoes, toss them back in the Air Fryer for 5-8 minutes. You can also roast them in the oven for a few minutes or use a microwave. Air frying is the best way to get them back to crispy potatoes.

Air Fryer Rosemary Potatoes really are the best thing to serve with just about any meal throughout the day. Pick your favorite small baby potatoes, fry them up and enjoy every crunchy, flavorful bite.
