The best easy and super crispy air fryer breakfast hash. Make amazing hash with barely an effort and a fraction of the oil!
I have owned an air fryer for 5 days, and I have already made this breakfast hash 3 times!
After the first time, I knew this was a recipe that I had to share.
Perfectly crispy on the outside hash is one of my favorite breakfast recipes, but the oven version takes so long that I rarely make it.
This recipe uses a fraction of the oil I normally would use, and is insanely crispy with barely any work!
Honestly wondering how I lived without the air fryer before.
How to make air fryer breakfast hash
First, dice up a large sweet potato, two russet potatoes, and a yellow onion.
Aim for all the pieces (including the onion) to be around the same size for even cooking.
Toss the diced up potatoes and onion with two tablespoons of olive oil, and the salt, pepper, garlic powder, and thyme.
Transfer the mixture to the air fryer basket and spread out into an even layer.
Turn the air fryer to 400 degrees, and set the timer for 20 minutes.
Every 5 – 10 minutes, check on the potatoes and stir/spray with olive oil spray if they look a little dry.
I usually do this maybe once or twice. You really barely need any oil at all, I just prefer the texture with it!
Air fryers can fry without any oil, but in my opinion, a tiny bit is necessary for the texture we are going for.
Cook the potatoes for 20 – 30 minutes, until crispy on all sides.
I ate this for breakfast every day this week with eggs and it was so filling and tasted like I was eating out every day!
One batch will make around 4 – 5 generous servings.
To reheat any leftovers, you can use the air fryer or just stick it on a sheet in the oven for a few minutes!
Crispy, amazing air fryer breakfast hash.
I have a feeling this is going to be on a regular breakfast rotation in our house!
Honestly, I may never go back to making hash in the oven!
I just can’t get over how very easy this was and how little effort it required from me.
It’s amazing how easy the air fryer is to use, and I love how simple it is to clean!
If you’re like me and wasn’t sure if you needed an air fryer, don’t put it off.
My only regret is not getting one sooner!
