Why I Love This Recipe

Anytime I can find a healthier alternative to a food I love without sacrificing the best qualities of that food, I&rsquom overjoyed. Since I love a generous portion of breakfast potatoes to go with some bacon and eggs, crispy air fryer hash browns are a winner in my book.

Common Questions About Air Fryer Potatoes

Throughout the week I am in such a hurry in the mornings. I usually have a grab and go breakfast. I want to make a goal to have a sit-down breakfast on the weekend.

The air fryer helps to make that a pretty easy task. I love the ingredients in this recipe. I only used a handful, and they are all natural/real-food/plant-based ingredients. This recipe is sure to fit in with your Whole 30 or Paleo regimen&hellip.or if you are like me just your plain ole&rsquo healthy lifestyle regimen.

I have a few friends who have done Whole 30 and Paleo. They have all loved it for weight loss reasons.

Whole 30 operates under the notion that certain food groups with sugar, dairy, grains, and legumes could have a negative impact on your health. Things like chronic pain, fatigue, skin issues, and a host of others are cited as potential side effects.

The foods noted above are completely stripped from your diet for 30 days. This allows your body to heal from whatever effects these foods may have caused.

The paleo diet follows the principle of eating similar to cavemen. You can eat anything that could be hunt and gathered.

Paleo excludes dairy, legumes, grains, and processed food.

While I do not have experience with these diets, I have done a lot of research over the years about food.

It has been almost four years since the last time I was on an official diet. This is also the last time I was heavily focused on weight loss. Since then, I have adopted a more holistic approach to my lifestyle. I focus more on the health benefits of food and I exercise regularly.

Sweet potatoes pack a lot of health benefits. Sweet potatoes are high in antioxidants, can help stabilize blood sugar, enhances immunity, and assists with weight loss.

Did I forget to mention, sweet potatoes are delicious? These hashbrowns are the perfect sweet and savory treat! If sweet and savory isn&rsquot your thing, feel free to exclude the garlic and seasonings. The spice of the cinnamon alone tastes great.

Recipe Summary

  • cooking spray
  • 1 (30 ounce) package frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground paprika
  • salt and ground pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray generously with cooking spray.

Add potatoes and onion to a large bowl and stir well. Drizzle oil over the potatoes and stir until the potatoes are coated. Gradually sprinkle garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper over the potatoes, tossing to combine. Distribute potatoes evenly on the prepared baking sheet, but don't pack down.

Bake in the preheated oven until hash browns are golden brown and crispy, 35 to 40 minutes.


Sweet Potato Bacon Hash

Sweet Potato Bacon Hash is an easy side dish you can enjoy with breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Sweet potato, bacon, and brussels sprouts… what’s not to love?

Sometimes I make hash as an entree because I can quickly throw in a good protein and tons of veggies to really make the most out of the pan. And, friend, I nearly always throw an egg on top. So good!

Today we’re talking about the kind of hash that’s more of a side dish though. My two favorite are Skillet Breakfast Potatoes (I seriously make this twice a week) and a sweeter version I bet you’ll enjoy is my Cinnamon Raisin Diced Sweet Potatoes.

This Sweet Potato Bacon Hash has the natural sweetness of sweet potatoes, but I still consider this more of a savory hash. The saltiness of the bacon balances out that sweetness. Plus we’re using brussels sprouts to sneak in a green veggie and the dried herbs really help make this a savory winner!

For this and any recipe with bacon, I prefer Wellshire Turkey Bacon. I love that it’s turkey which is lower in calories than the pork kind and significantly lower in fat. Their bacon is also nitrate free and has an awesome ingredient list. I’ve purchased several varieties including their Classic Sliced Turkey Bacon, Turkey Peppered Uncured Bacon, Organic Turkey Bacon, and Sugar Free Paleo Turkey Bacon. All are totally delicious. (And no, this isn’t an ad. They don’t know I exist. I just love their product and want to pass along my recommendation to you.)


  1. Lay about 1/2 the bacon into the air fryer basket. (It’s okay for them to overlap) Season with coarse black pepper and cook at 400 degrees F. for 5 minutes.
  2. While the bacon is cooking, add the maple syrup and brown sugar to a bowl and stir to combine.
  3. After 5 minutes, open the air fryer and flip the bacon. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  4. Open the air fryer and brush the bacon with the maple syrup mixture. Cook another 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack to set. Let sit for at least 5 minutes.
  5. Repeat the same process with the other 1/2 of the bacon.
  6. See notes below for storage recommendations.

Can I overlap the bacon in the air fryer basket?

Yes, with this recipe it is okay to overlap the bacon as it shrinks when it cooks.

How long does candied bacon last?

You can store candied bacon in the refrigerator for up to three weeks. Note that the syrup may get wet and sticky as it sits. You can reheat in the air fryer by cooking for 3-5 minutes and then let it set again on a cooling rack.

Recipe Notes

  • Add a little heat by adding a pinch of red pepper flakes with the black pepper.
  • If you prefer to bake the bacon in the oven, you can find oven-baked candied bacon instructions in this recipe maple bacon spice cupcakes.

Shred potatoes using the large holes of a box grater.

Add the potatoes to a mixing bowl and soak them in cold water for 20 minutes.

Tip: Soaking the potatoes helps draw out some of the starch so that the hash browns do not come out gummy.

Line a baking sheet with a few layers of paper towels and spread the potatoes out on the paper towel-lined baking sheet.

Add a top layer of paper towels and press to squeeze out the water and dry the potatoes as much as possible.

Alternatively, you can wrap up the potatoes in the paper towels and ring out/squeeze the water out of them over the sink.

Tip: If the potatoes are too wet, your hash browns will end up soggy in the middle. And nobody wants that! There&rsquos definitely a difference between soft and tender potatoes and soggy ones. Therefore, you want to be sure to really, really dry the potatoes after soaking them.

Dry out the mixing bowl and add the potatoes back to the bowl.

Add the oil, salt and pepper and combine with a silicone spatula.

Lightly grease the bottom of the air fryer basket with non-aerosol, propellant-free avocado or olive oil spray.

Note that it's important to use a non-aerosol, propellant-free oil spray to avoid damaging your air fryer's non-stick finish.

You can also use a spritzer bottle and fill it with your own oil.

Add the potatoes to the air fryer and spread them out evenly.

Air fry at 375° for 15 minutes, stirring with the silicone spatula halfway through cooking and spreading out in an even layer again.

If you want them crispier, continue to cook for a few more minutes until desired crispiness is reached.

Not-So-Pro Tips

If you don’t have an air fryer, you can use your favorited baked chip recipe, store bought chips or the potato base from these Fully Loaded Bacon Cheddar Potato Rounds

Whether or not you have an air fryer, if you want to make this dish prettier, you can melt the cheese onto the chips in the oven (400 degrees for about 5 minutes) and cook the egg in a pan on the stove top. The results are just as tasty in the fryer but not always as neat!

If you have a mandolin, use it to make your chips! If you don’t, though, I’ve made them by (very carefully) slicing thinly with a sharp knife. Even better, use a potato peeler to get super thin slices!

Feel free to switch up the veggies or cheese based on what you have on hand, one of the great things about a hash is you can make it your own!
