  2. Willow Creek Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray
  3. Salt to taste
  4. 1/4 cup grated Grana Padano


  1. 4 large potatoes, thinly sliced

  3. 1 tablespoon of paprika
  4. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  5. 1 teaspoon salt
  6. Willow Creek Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray


  • On an oiled baking tray, place your cooked baby potatoes and firmly press down on each potato to flatten or “smash.” (The bottom of a glass works well.)
  • Generously spray with Willow Creek Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
  • Place into a preheated air fryer at 180 °C.
  • Air fry for approximately 18 minutes, turning potatoes half way through.
  • Once the potatoes are crispy, remove them from the air fryer and sprinkle with salt and Grana Padano.
  • Serve warm with a dip of sun-dried tomato pesto.
  • Peel and thinly slice potatoes using a mandoline or a peeler.
  • Roll each slice and set it by sticking it through a toothpick or cocktail stick.
  • Add to a bowl of salted, cold water and set aside for approximately 30 minutes.
  • Remove from water and pat dry.
  • Add a single layer of potato sticks to your air fryer and generously coat with the convenient Willow Creek Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray.
  • Bake at 180’C for approximately 13 – 15 minutes, or until crispy.
  • Remove and repeat.
  • To remove crispy potato curls from cocktail sticks, gently twist to loosen and pull off.
  • Season generously with salt and pepper, and serve with a dip of your choice.
  • Chip curls can be made in advance and can be served cold.
  • Peel the cooked potatoes and cut them into small squares.
  • Mix into the dry ingredients until coated completely.
  • Add to preheated air fryer , spray generously with Willow Creek Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
  • Air fry at 180°C for approximately 15 minutes, giving the air fryer tray a good shake halfway through.
