The kind of breakfast potatoes you’d order at a restaurant, these easy breakfast potatoes are made with just a drizzle of olive oil and taco seasoning. The key to these crispy potatoes? The air fryer!
Air Fryer Taco Breakfast Potatoes
In 2020, we had a lot of breakfasts at home. In years prior (before this pandemic that locked us down!), we always went out for brunch on the weekends. Since I cook all week long, I look forward to the weekends when we can go try new foods and…. I don’t have to cook! Brunch is one of our favorites, because it times perfectly with toddler nap times. A little park play, an 11:30am brunch, and home for 1pm nap!
One of the things I look forward to most about brunch are the breakfast potatoes. There’s something about scrambled eggs and potatoes that gets me up in the morning, haha. I love everything about breakfast potatoes and every restaurant does them differently.
There’s this one restaurant that has a Mexican breakfast bowl featuring “taco breakfast potatoes,” and since we haven’t been able to go out for brunches as much this year, I started making them at home and they’re just as good and crispy, without the frying used at the restaurant. These are a bit healthier, thanks to the air fryer!
How do you make breakfast potatoes in the air fryer?
- Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees.
- Cube a pound of creamer potatoes.
- Toss potatoes with olive oil, taco seasoning, salt and pepper.
- Place in the air fryer basket and cook for 15-20 minutes or until crispy, shaking the basket halfway through.
And if you want to elevate this recipe, add a drizzle of something – a chili lime mayo, some hot sauce, or simply top them with fried eggs and enjoy!
