  • 1 24 oz bag baby potatoes, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic grated
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • ¼ teaspoon ground sea salt


  • Transfer the cut potatoes to a large bowl of cold water and soak for 5 minutes. Swirl them around then drain the starch out. Rinse them again in cold water and drain. Dry them in a clean towel or paper towels until thoroughly dried.
  • In a large bowl, coat the potatoes evenly with the oil. Add the grated garlic and combine well. Sprinkle the cornstarch mixture over the potatoes, then toss again until they’re evenly coated. Spread the potatoes out in an even layer with no overlap on the air fryer tray.
  • Set the air fryer settings to "air fry" at 400 for 15 minutes. At the 10 minute mark, shake the basket to evenly cook them. Cook for an additional 5 minutes until browned and crispy. If they're not as browned as you’d like, roast for another 5 minutes.
  • Remove the potatoes from the air fryer and sprinkle generously with ground sea salt to taste. I start with ¼ teaspoon and add more depending on your preference. Allow to cool 5-10 minutes and serve warm!


Note: The timing of the potatoes varies depending on the size you cut the potatoes. Cook an additional 5-10 minutes depending on your preference.
