I LOVE potatoes. I am pretty much a fan of all carbs. Carbs are just so darn comforting!

So of course, I am a huge fan of the breakfast hash browns served by fast-food establishments. These hash browns are unhealthy and loaded with fat, but sheesh they taste so freaking good!

Help me out, air fryer! Let’s take Chick-fil-A as an example. I really hate to call out Chick-fil-A because I love the customer experience they provide. They are always so nice!

But, it has to be done. One serving of hash browns from Chick-fil-A has 240 calories and 13 grams of fat. I am less concerned with the calories and more concerned with the fat.

Potatoes do not have much fat. The fat in hash browns lies in the oil or grease used to fry them. Using the air fryer will save 15 grams of fat. All hail, the air fryer.

I added a little flavor to these hash browns with peppers and onions. Feel free to add your favorites! You could also go the extra mile and smother them with cheese if you wish.

That will definitely create truck stop hash browns or also mimic the hash browns you will find in the infamous Waffle House. Using the air fryer still cuts the fat tremendously, even with added cheese.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
soak in water 20 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 4
Calories 246kcal

Ingredients

  • 3 russet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped green peppers
  • 1/4 cup chopped red peppers
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

Instructions

  • Grate the potatoes using the largest holes of a cheese grater.
  • Place the potatoes in a bowl of cold water. Allow the potatoes to soak for 20-25 minutes. Soaking the potatoes in cold water will help remove the starch from the potatoes. This makes them crunchy.
  • Drain the water from the potatoes and dry them completely using a paper towel.
  • Place the potatoes in a dry bowl. Add the garlic, paprika, olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine the ingredients.
  • Add the potatoes to the air fryer.
  • Cook for ten minutes on 400 degrees. 
  • Open the air fryer and shake the potatoes.  Add the chopped peppers and onions. Cook for an additional ten minutes.
  • Cool before serving.

Notes

Cook time may vary depending on the air fryer brand that you use. Check in on your hashbrowns after they have cooked for 15 minutes. This will allow you gauge how much additional time (if any) you will need. I like to check this by tasting a small portion to see if the hash browns are crunchy enough, or if they will need additional cook time.

You say these are low calories but you have these 6 calories more than chick fl a. Did I miss read or are the 240 calories per serving?

You misread. It’s per serving.

Recipe looks great! Just wondering though - how can the air fryer save 15 grams of fat over Chik-Fil-A if their hash browns only have 13 grams of fat?

Thank you! I did the math, comparing the macros to what the company listed when this recipe was written.

Such a easy recipe and so good. I have not indulged in hash browns because of the oil used and never would have thought they could be done in an air fryer! They were amazing!

You can probably use thawed or frozen. I don't eat much processed food so I've never tried this.
