  • 1 pound red baby potatoes
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika


  • Clean potatoes and dry them.  Cut each in half, then half again, finally turning them for 3-4 more cuts horizontally.
  • Add potatoes to a large bowl and drizzle them with olive oil.  Season with salt, pepper and paprika.
  • Add your potatoes to an air fryer sprayed with coconut oil cooking spray.  Air fry at 400F for 12-15 minutes, shaking basket halfway through.


  • Storage: store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Reheat: air fry leftovers at 400F for 3-5 minutes or until crispy and heated through.
  • If time permits, feel free to soak the potatoes overnight to draw out as much starch as possible. This really does help to get the crispiest potato possible. 
  • Make sure all pieces are diced evenly to ensure proper cooking.
