Now you can make perfectly seasoned air fryer home fries every time using this quick and easy recipe! All you need is an air fryer and four ingredients.

Breakfast can be hectic at times. There are some mornings when all you have time for is a bowl of cold cereal.

That’s why, on weekends, I like to create a home cooked meal for my family. In most cases I make something simple like eggs in a toast basket or our cheesy breakfast enchiladas.

Regardless of the main dish, I finally have the perfect side; these seasoned air fryer home fries.

We served our air fryer potatoes in these decorative bowls that we found in Eureka Springs, AR.

In order to create this recipe, all you need are four ingredients; cubed potatoes, olive oil, seasoned salt, and any extra seasoning blend you like.

Of course, you will need an air fryer. If you don’t have one, then try our oven baked ranch potatoes instead.

How to make home fries in an air fryer?

First, start by washing, drying, and cutting the potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes. Peeling the potatoes is optional.

As you can see, we didn’t peel our potatoes. You can if you want to, but it’s optional.

Now, for this recipe, you can use frozen potatoes in an air fryer; however, I would thaw them out and dry them off first.

Once the taters are prepped, preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F. Next, toss the potatoes in the olive oil, seasoned salt, and garlic & herb spices.

For our home fries, we used seasoned salt and garlic & herb seasonings. But, you can use whatever spices you enjoy the most.

After that, place the potato cubes in the air fryer basket in an even layer. It may require multiple batches is your fryer is small.

Make sure to put the potatoes into the basket in an even layer. Otherwise, they won’t cook properly.

Then, allow the potatoes to cook for 10 minutes. Open the fryer and flip the fries. Afterward, them cook for another 10 minutes (20 minutes in total).

Halfway through the cooking process, the taters are flipped.
Be sure to flip your potatoes halfway through the cooking process.

Last, once done, carefully remove the air fryer home fries from the machine and serve them hot.
