Air Fried Breakfast Potatoes

With the weather really warming up, I have been more obsessed with my air fryer than usual, as it often means I can skip turning my oven on. This is my favorite recipe for air fried breakfast potatoes. These are crispy and made super flavorful with just a little bit of rosemary. The perfect companion to a runny (or scrambled) egg on a lazy weekend morning. Yum!

As indicated in the printable recipe card below, I tend to use one whole potato per person/serving. But if you are extra hungry, or your potatoes are on the small side, feel free to use more. I just wouldn’t overstuff your air fryer basket, as this tends to make things less crispy and just generally take longer to fry.

You can certainly swap the rosemary for another fresh herb you might have on hand, or if you don’t love rosemary. You could also choose to add a generous sprinkle or garlic powder, or leave them simple with only salt and pepper. Up to you!

Here’s to breakfast! Enjoy these air fried breakfast potatoes soon. xo. Emma

      I cook at 400 for 30 minutes and potatoes are not even done.
      I have a dash for 2 and am so disappointed. I am in my nineties and could not lift the heavy ones but something wrong with this one.
