  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper

Air Fryer Instructions:

  • Preheat air fryer to 390 Degrees Fahrenheit and set the timer for 15 minutes.
  • While the air fryer heats up, cut each potato in half.
  • To a medium bowl, add the olive oil, melted butter, Parmesan cheese, Italian season, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined.
  • Add the baby potatoes to the bowl and toss until the potatoes are well coated.
  • Add the baby potatoes to the air fryer in single layer and cook for 15 minutes until they are fork tender. Shake the air fryer basket halfway through.
  • Remove the potatoes from the air fryer and place onto a serving dish. Top with additional Parmesan cheese if desired. Let them cool as they will be hot! Then enjoy.

Oven Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • While the oven heats up, cut each potato in half.
  • To a medium bowl, mix together the olive oil, butter, Parmesan Cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Add the baby potatoes to the bowl and toss until well coated.
  • Add the baby potatoes to a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake on the center rack for 20 minutes until fork tender.
  • Once done, remove from oven and top with additional grated Parmesan cheese if you’d like.


Storage And Reheating Instructions
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
  • To reheat, preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees Fahrenheit and heat for 2 to 3 minutes.

Pro Tips:

  • The potatoes I used were 1 inch in size. Larger potatoes will need extra time to cook.
  • I cut my potatoes in half, but you can leave them whole if desired. Add a couple minutes of cook time if cooking whole.
  • Potatoes need to be placed into the air fryer in a single layer for best results. Cook in batches if needed.
  • The air fryer I used was the Instant Vortex Plus 6 quart. Since all air fryers are different, you will need to adjust the cook time based on the air fryer you are using.
