  • 1 pound fingerling potatoes
  • 2  tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves minced garlic, about 1 tablespoon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon Lemon pepper seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, optional

Sour Cream and Chive Dip ( Optional)

  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons dried chives or fresh chives
  • Salt and pepper, as needed


  • Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Rinse the potatoes and dry them with a towel. Remove any damaged parts, but do not peel the potatoes. Cut them in half lengthwise. Transfer to a large bowl.
  • Pour in the oil,  add garlic, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and lemon pepper seasoning. Mix everything together in the bowl until the potatoes are coated.
  • Lightly coat the air fryer basket with oil. Arrange the potatoes in a single layer in the basket, making sure they are not overlapping. Cook them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 14 minutes. Shake the basket every 5 minutes while cooking. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook the potatoes in batches.
  • Sprinkle the parsley and Parmesan cheese (if desired), as well as the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt over the potatoes. Mix everything together until well combined.
  • Serve the potatoes hot and crispy, and if desired, alongside the dip. To prepare the dip, simply mix all the ingredients together and refrigerate for 10 minutes before serving.



  • To store any leftover potatoes, place them in an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • If you want to freeze,  put them in a freezer-safe airtight container and store them in the freezer for up to 3 months. Before reheating, allow them to thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
