In the case of this Air Fryer Potato Chip Breakfast Hash, on the other hand, the name alone would keep me interested for at least a moment. This one was a serious accident gone right in that I had a bunch of stuff I wanted to try to use up right around the same time that my Mom told me I could use some more variety on here.
The brain started turning and whoa, did it come up with something good. This Air Fryer Potato Chip Breakfast Hash uses oil free, air fried potato chips, cheese, veggies and a perfectly runny egg to make the tastiest, fun breakfast you never knew you needed.
Air Fryer Potato Chip Breakfast Hash
- 1 small potato mine weighed about 4.5 oz (125g)
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons reduced fat cheddar cheese
- ¼ cup tomato diced
- 1 green onion sliced
- 1 egg
- STEP 1Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees
- STEP 2Slice potato using a sharp knife or mandolin into thinnest possible slices, mine were almost translucent
- STEP 3Season potato slices with onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper
- STEP 4Spray basket of air fryer with cooking spray then add potatoes so that slices don’t overlap, I did mine in batches
- STEP 5Air fry potatoes for 2 minutes, shake basket contents then fry for another 3
- STEP 6When potatoes are done, return all chips to the basket and sprinkle cheese, tomato and green onion over entire dish
- STEP 7Crack egg into the center of the basket, on top of the chips and air fry until cheese melts and egg is cooked to your preference, for me, this took about 3-4 minutes
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.
