Air Fryer Mini Potatoes

baby potatoes cooked and in a bowl

Air fryer mini potatoes are a fast and easy side dish that you can whip up for lunch or dinner. Every now and again, I buy the bag of Baby Creamer Potatoes from Costco. Because I’m cooking for one, I never use all 5 lbs at once. This is what makes the air fryer a great option. I can prepare the amount that I want for a meal and maybe enough to eat with a couple more meals, and then prepare a new batch when I need them.

This recipe is very simple. You will likely have all of these ingredients in your pantry or fridge. I will say that it’s definitely for those that enjoy a garlicky, salty potato. Keep reading for the recipe, a quick video of the preparation, and serving suggestions!

  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 1 lb 1x
  • Category: side dish
  • Method: air fry
  • Cuisine: Vegetarian
  • Diet: Vegan


  • 1 lb mini potatoes (I used Baby Creamers from Costco)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic (I used the kind from a jar)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Rinse your potatoes and cut them in half.
  2. Put the potatoes in a bowl and mix with oil, garlic, and salt and pepper.
  3. Cook in the air fryer at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Depending on your air fryer, you may need to add a few more minutes. You want them to be browned on top (see the picture above).


  • I added a bit more salt than I usually do, but I really enjoyed that garlicky, salty flavor. If you’re watching your salt intake, use it sparingly or not at all.

Serving Suggestions for Air Fryer Mini Potatoes

These mini potatoes make a great side dish with any protein. The garlic and salt add a ton of flavor, and you really don’t need anything else with it. If you’re a ketchup or hot sauce fan, you might want a little on the side for an added kick, but it’s really not necessary.
