  1. Preheat Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).

  7. Air Fry:
    • Air fry at 375°F (190°C) for 30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender, and the top is golden brown and bubbly.
  8. Check and Rotate:
    • Check halfway through the cooking time and, if needed, gently shake or rotate the basket for even cooking.
  9. Garnish and Serve:
    • Once done, let the au gratin potatoes rest for a few minutes. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
