Air Fryer Home Fries


Home Fries in the Air Fryer may not look like they came from a restaurant but they taste amazing and they are so much healthier! Crisp on the outside, tender on the inside and golden brown they are as easy to make as peeling the potatoes, cutting them into cubes, season and Air Fry. I made a big breakfast and I cooked these in my Ninja Foodi on the Air Crisp setting.


Rinse the dirt off of the potatoes and peel. We usually leave the skin on but the grandkids won’t eat them if the skin is on so I peeled them. (Yes they are spoiled).


Chop the potatoes into 3/4” cubes.


Place the cubed potatoes into the air fryer pan. Drizzle with a little olive oil or spray with cooking oil and toss. I add the oil so the seasoning can stick to the potatoes.


Salt and pepper to taste or add any other seasonings of your choice then toss to combine.


Cook on the air fryer setting at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, I did not preheat the air fryer. Stir and continue to cook at 5 minute increments and stir until the potatoes are crisp on the outside, tender on the inside and start to brown. Cooking time will vary depending on how many potatoes you use and how thick you cut them. Mine took a total of 30 minutes. Just watch them carefully after the first 15 minutes of cooking and remove when the potatoes are tender.


  1. These look so yummy, I think I would add onion salt instead of regular. I am loving my air fryer, although I have only done chicken wings and fries in it so far.


  2. I just got an air fryer for Christmas and I’ve been afraid to try it! This looks doable. I love that you peel for the grandkids! You’re too kind! I’ll let you know how they come out! Happy New Year Diane! 💕C
