I love making breakfast in the air fryer. It’s such an easy way to start the day! One of my favorite air fryer breakfast recipes (and even breakfast for dinner!) is these homemade breakfast potatoes.

Oh, this homemade potato seasoning! I love it on all kinds of potatoes, but it is truly a perfect fit for these air fryer home fries. It’s salty and sweet with a little bit of herby deliciousness thrown in.
How to Air Fry Potatoes
- Mix your potato seasoning in a bowl.
- Wash, peel, and dice russet potatoes.
- Spray the air fryer trap, then air fry at 350 degrees for 15 minutes each tray. For the crispiest potatoes, don’t overcrowd the air fryer. Cook in batches if necessary. I love my 10-Quart Air Fryer for this.
- Place your air fryer breakfast potatoes in a bowl and toss with potato seasoning. Serve and enjoy!
The secret for how to cook potatoes in the air fryer is to toss them well in oil and salt, then air fry before seasoning with your potato seasoning. Toss with seasoning after frying; this gives the roasted potatoes so much flavor.
No, you do not. You can air fry the potatoes directly after peeling and cutting them.
We like to peel our potatoes, but you can leave them with the skin on if you prefer. Just be sure to cut into a relatively even dice.
Rinse potatoes under cool water and brush them clean with your fingers or a potato scrubber.
Peel your potatoes first if peeling. Then, lay your potato on a cutting board and cut in half. This way you can rest the potato on the flat side to dice it. Cut into slices, then cut the opposite direction to dice into smaller pieces.
Although potatoes can be peeled and cut the night before by soaking them in water, we do not recommend doing that for this recipe as diced potatoes do not hold up well to soaking overnight. If you want to peel potatoes but not cut them ahead of time, you can peel the night before, then store submerged in water in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
This is what makes these homemade breakfast potatoes so special. The air fryer does all of the work of making them crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Biting into the crispy outside and tasting the soft, fluffy potato inside… perfection!
