Air Fryer Home Fries turn out golden brown and crispy with just a little oil, and include green peppers, onions and a simple seasoning!


  • 1 pound Yukon gold potatoes (about 34 small potatoes)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/2 medium-sized green pepper, chopped


  1. Rinse and scrub your potatoes clean. Cut into 1-inch cubes. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Add the potatoes to a bowl and toss together with the oil and seasonings.
  3. Place the potatoes in the air fryer basket and air fry at 400F for 10 minutes.
  4. Toss the basket to rotate the potatoes around and mix in the peppers and onions.
  5. Air fry for another 8-10 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown, crispy and fork tender. Shake the basket another 1-2 times to ensure even browning.
  6. Taste and add more salt and pepper, if necessary, before serving.


  1. You can substitute Russet potatoes for Yukon gold. I like to keep the skins on so the home fries get a little extra crispy, but you can peel them if you prefer.
  2. I used a Cosori 5.8 quart air fryer for this recipe. If you have a different size, brand or model, you may need to adjust the air frying time and temperature slightly.
  3. I found the home fries were the crispiest when they were air fried in a single layer. If you’re not able to do this, you can overlap the potatoes, but you’ll need to increase the air frying time and shake the basket more often to rotate the potatoes around.
  4. I didn’t preheat my air fryer, but if you do, your potatoes may air fry a little faster.
  5. The peppers and onions add moisture. If you decide to leave them out, your home fries will get crispy quicker.
