Try these leftover baby potatoes that I smashed and air-fried. I am making sure that whenever I have baby potatoes again I cook way too many so that I can leftover baby potatoes to smash, spice up, and air fry. Schucks – there is no reason that I even have to wait for leftover baby potatoes – I just boil some from scratch purely to use in the air fryer.

In this recipe I have used leftover boiled potatoes but you can cook fresh baby potatoes as well. Simply boil them till they are soft and then smash them.
A great choice as a side for steaks and meat dishes. Also an interesting starter dish or even a great snack. I know that I could eat them almost anytime as they are super tasty.
