  • Air Fryer


  • 1 russet potato diced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ tsp cornstarch
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp fresh herbs I used thyme and rosemary


  • Start by preheating your air fryer at 400 degrees for 3 minutes.
  • Prepare your ingredients by washing the potato and finely chopping the fresh herbs.
  • Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and toss until the potatoes are well coated.
  • Place the potatoes in the air fryer and cook for a total of 14 minutes or until your potatoes have reached your desired level of crispiness. Pause the air fryer halfway through cooking to toss the potatoes.
  • After cooking remove the breakfast potatoes from the air fryer and allow them to cool slightly before enjoying.


I prefer my breakfast potatoes on the saltier side, salt/season to taste if preferred. 
The larger you make the diced potatoes, the longer they will take to cook. For this recipe I diced my potatoes in about ½ inch cubed. 
These potatoes can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
