Air Fryer Home Fries are crispy, crunchy and easy to make! Russet potatoes are mixed with red bell pepper and shallot, and then seasoned with avocado oil and Garlic Parmesan Wing Seasoning Mix.
Homes fries are also known as American fries. They differ from French fries in that they are cubed potatoes that are baked or lightly fried. French fries are longer, thinner pieces that are deep fried.
Air Fryer Home Fries Ingredients
To make this air fryer potato recipe, you will need the following ingredients (print the recipe below for detailed amounts):
- Russet potatoes: You can substitute red or Yukon gold potatoes if necessary, though russet potatoes are best for fries.
- Red bell pepper: You can substitute any color bell pepper instead.
- Shallot: You can substitute a small onion or half of a medium onion instead.
- Avocado oil: Feel free to use your favorite cooking oil, like olive oil. I like Avocado oil because the high smoke point means it won’t burn when it gets hot.
- Garlic Parmesan Wing Seasoning Mix: I used the Great Value brand of this seasoning but you can substitute any meat or veggie seasoning pack that you like. You can also make up your own seasoning if you wish. Salt, pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasonings all go well with this recipe.
- Fresh parsley: optional garnish.
How to Make Home Fries in an Air Fryer
- Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Add the potatoes, bell pepper, shallot and avocado oil to a large mixing bowl and stir everything together.
- Sprinkle in the seasoning packet and toss until the vegetables are well coated.
- Place the potato mixture in the air fryer basket in an even, single layer. You may need to do 2 or more batches depending on the size of your air fryer. Don’t overcrowd your air fryer. You want to makes sure the potatoes cook evenly.
- Cook for 15-18 minutes, shaking or flipping the potatoes halfway through, and be sure to cook until the potatoes are soft on the inside and crisp on the outside.
- Plate and serve warm with a sprinkle of minced fresh parsley, optional.
Allow your Air Fryer Home Fries to cool completely before storing. They should be stored in an airtight container or bag in the refrigerator for 5-6 days or in the freezer for 2-3 months.
I recommend reheating leftover Home Fries in the Air Fryer until heated through, though you can also reheat them in the microwave if you prefer.
Just because these Air Fryer Home Fries make a great breakfast dish, doesn’t mean you can’t serve them for lunch or dinner as well! Like all potatoes they are a great compliment to sandwiches, proteins or even a nice snack all by themselves.
Breakfast: These Air Fryer Home Fries are a great breakfast dish, especially when topped with a sunny side up egg and paired with some bacon or sausage. Add them to this Breakfast Charcuterie Board or replace the chips in these Breakfast Nachos.
Mexican: You can also serve them garnished with cheese, salsa and sour cream for a Mexican version.
Southern: If you want to make them into a heartier meal you can serve them with gravy and serve them along with country fried steak.
