Preparation for Crispiest Air Fryer Gnocchi

  1. To make the crispiest air fryer gnocchi, start by preheating the air fryer to 390°F and lightly greasing the basket with olive oil spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, toss the gnocchi with the other ingredients, making sure to not thaw the frozen gnocchi if using.
  3. Once seasoned, add the gnocchi to the preheated basket, being careful not to overlap them so that they crisp evenly.
  4. If using shelf-stable or refrigerated gnocchi, air fry them for 11-14 minutes, shaking the basket every 4-5 minutes until they’re golden and crispy on all sides.
  5. For frozen gnocchi, air fry for 13-16 minutes, shaking the basket every 4-5 minutes until they’re golden and crispy on all sides. Be sure to check that they’re not burned.
  6. Serve immediately, garnished with extra parmesan cheese and fresh parsley.
  7. You can serve these as a side dish with your favorite main course, as an appetizer with marinara sauce or pesto for dipping, or as a “crouton” on top of your favorite salad.
