Air Fryer Potatoes O’Brien Recipe by Aileen Clark

This classic breakfast potato dish is excellent when cooked in the air fryer. The potatoes get extra crispy without burning. The onion and bell peppers get soft and slightly charred and are never too crunchy. The green onion garnish adds a nice fresh bite to this dish, but feel free to omit if you don’t have any on hand. These potatoes can be served as a traditional breakfast dish or as a side dish at dinner. Try serving them with Filet Mignon with Garlic Herb Butter for a hearty meal.
