Air Fryer Batatas a Murro – Portuguese Garlicky “Punched Potatoes”

Air Fryer Potatoes are garlicky and savory. You’ll never have regular baked potatoes again.

You can also bake the potatoes as in this video below. Follow same ingredients but bake for about 1 hour or until done.

2 pounds any small or medium potatoes (washed and pat dry)

parsley (minced)

more olive oil as needed


Place potatoes in a bowl and rub with about 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle with about 1 tablespoon sea salt.

Cook in air fryer at 400 F. for about 15-20 minutes. Shake pan once in while and pierce with a fork for doneness.
