Air Fryer Potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes to make for weeknight dinners. It's an easy way to serve potatoes without even turning on the oven!

Air Fryer Potatoes with Rosemary

I started cooking potatoes in the air fryer fairly recently. We love our meat and potatoes dishes around here, so we enjoy them at least once a week. However, it does take some time to plan, peel, and get those potatoes boiling for mashed potatoes.

Serving roasted potatoes is my second choice when I only have an hour or less of prep time till we want to eat. That has it's downsides too as you have to heat up the oven, prepare a sheet pan, and of course check (and sometimes recheck) to see if they are fully done. The air fryer is SO much faster and easier!

Prepping your Air Fryer Potatoes with Rosemary

First, prepare the potatoes. If you are using russets you will need to peel them so all those delicious herbs can flavor them evenly. For this recipe we used Yukon Gold as you can see. These are great to work with for roasting, since you don't really have to peel them if you don't want to. They have a thin skin that really doesn't even have a flavor after it's been roasted. Also, no waste!

Gather your herbs and spices next. The best part about this recipe is that there are only a few ingredients so you can get it in the air fryer quickly and move on to prepping other foods.

Fresh Rosemary is ideal for this recipe. Yes, it can be expensive at the store so you can always use dried Rosemary from your spice rack.

Side note- If you haven't tried growing your own Rosemary, it's a wonderful starter herb. You can actually grow it in a pot, right in the kitchen! Considering one small tray of fresh, organic Rosemary is around $4 at my local supermarket, growing my own is worth my time!

Using your Air Fryer for Potatoes

I've mentioned in my last air fryer recipe, NOT all air fryers cook the same. There are too many on the market, and too many types, to even list here. Cooking times will vary with your brand.

Our advice is to start your air fryer, and then half way through the cooking time always check the food. Air fryers typically need to have the food turned or tossed (if you have the basket type). This will keep the food cooking evenly. If you notice the food is cooking too quickly, you can also adjust the temperature at this time.

Another tip is to coat your food well with cooking oil. An olive oil sprayer works great. If you are the type to spray with cooking spray, be sure to get the food coated well on all sides. It gives a much smaller “mist” of oil. I've also used a grill brush in a pinch!

Finally, check the food when it's done prior to serving. Potatoes should be fork tender and the skins should be crispy but not falling apart.

After the potatoes are done, garnish for more flavor and serve! I love how simple this recipe is, and the fact I don't have to turn on the oven at all.

They're quick and easy, and can be served with many main courses, making them a great pairing with almost anything you're cooking for dinner.

  • 1 - 3 pound package of baby gold Potatoes
  • 1 wedge of Parmesan cheese
  • 1 package of fresh Rosemary
  • Spray Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons of Butter
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic salt
  • Pepper - to taste


Wash the Potatoes in a colander, and pat dry with a kitchen towel.

Cut the Potatoes in half, and place them in a large bowl.

Spray the Potatoes with the Olive oil, until well coated.

Sprinkle garlic salt and fresh Rosemary over Potatoes, and generously grate fresh Parmesan cheese over potatoes, until they're coated in cheese.

Place the potatoes cut side down in the air fryer, and set the time for 8 minutes.

While the Potatoes are cooking, melt the two Tablespoons of butter the Microwave, and sprinkle a little garlic salt in the butter. Sprinkle a little pepper in the butter.

When the potatoes are done, remove them from the air fryer into the bowl, and toss them in the garlic pepper butter.

Place them in a serving dish, and grate a little more Parmesan cheese over the Potatoes. Garnish with sprigs of fresh Rosemary.

Serve, and Enjoy!


NOTE: You can add as much, or as little pepper, or garlic salt as you want to the butter. Keep in mind Potatoes need quite a bit of salt to make them really flavorful. If you want to measure the garlic salt, I'd say add about 1/2 a teaspoon to the butter.
