Why You Need To Start Making Breakfast Potatoes In Your Air Fryer
By Camryn Teder
Potatoes are a cheap, delicious, and filling breakfast staple that taste best when crispy, and nothing helps to achieve this textured effect better than an air fryer.
A smaller and quicker version of a convection oven, air fryers preheat quickly and can fry up food in a healthier way since they don't require plunking your food into oil.
Whether you prefer to use russet, red, or baby potatoes for your breakfast potatoes, all you need to do is toss them in the fryer, add salt, and set the timer.
To make your potatoes really shine, peel and cut them, add seasonings like paprika, cayenne, or garlic powder, then toss it all in a bowl with a little drizzle of oil.
While cooking times will vary depending on how many potatoes you want, sticking two chopped russet potatoes in at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes is a good baseline.
Smaller chunks will cook up faster while larger cuts will need more cooking time. Checking your potatoes as they cook is the best way to guarantee that just-right texture.
