Air Fryer Breakfast Potatoes


  • 3-4 medium russet or Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Optional toppings: chopped fresh herbs, grated cheese, or diced cooked bacon


  1. Wash and peel the potatoes (you can leave the skin on if you prefer a more rustic texture). Cut them into bite-sized cubes or small wedges, keeping the pieces relatively uniform in size.
  2. Place the potato cubes in a bowl and drizzle the olive oil over them. Toss the potatoes to coat them evenly with the oil.
  3. In another small bowl, mix the garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper to create a seasoning mix.
  4. Sprinkle the seasoning mix over the oiled potatoes and toss until the potatoes are well-coated with the spices.
  5. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  6. Once the air fryer is preheated, place the seasoned potato cubes in the air fryer basket in a single layer. It’s essential not to overcrowd the basket to allow for proper airflow and even cooking. If necessary, cook in batches.
  7. Cook the potatoes in the air fryer for 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket or tossing the potatoes with tongs every 5-7 minutes to ensure even cooking. The cooking time may vary depending on the size of the potato pieces and the specific air fryer model, so check for doneness by piercing a potato with a fork; they should be tender on the inside and crispy on the outside.
  8. Once the potatoes are cooked to your desired level of crispiness, remove them from the air fryer. If you like, you can sprinkle them with fresh herbs, grated cheese, or diced cooked bacon before serving.
  9. Serve the air fryer breakfast potatoes hot with your favorite breakfast items, such as eggs, bacon, sausage, or avocado…
