Sunday afternoons tend to be a little slower for us and so we started a little tradition – brunch. Eggs, bacon, biscuits, and these air fryer breakfast potatoes are the norm for brunch here. Breakfast potatoes are a recipe that my Dad normally makes when he cooks a big weekend breakfast. It’s one of Brandon’s favorites so he decided to re-create the recipe. Yes, for brunch, Brandon is in charge of the breakfast potatoes! However, we love the ease of cooking them in the air fryer. Here’s the recipe that we have found to work well.

These air fryer breakfast potatoes will become a staple of your weekend brunch routine. They are perfectly cooked but have a little crunch on the outside. I love this method of cooking too because you get all the advantages of a “fried” potato but it’s better for you in the air fryer. If you’re gonna eat potatoes, it should be as healthy as possible, right?
