Egg Scramble with Air Fryer Potatoes
This Egg Scramble with Air Fryer Potatoes is a satisfying and savory way to start your day! Easy to make and so yummy.
Air Fryer Potatoes
- 2 cups diced potatoes, I prefer yellow or gold potatoes.
- 1/2 tsp olive oil, extra virgin, can omit
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- cooking fat of choice, This is to prevent the eggs from sticking to the pan. I use an olive oil spray but ghee also works great if not dairy free.
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups spinach
- 1/2 medium tomato
- salt and pepper
- 2 tbsp store-bought salsa
- Optional: hot sauce
Toss your diced potatoes in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place them in the air fryer at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. If your air fryer has a basket you'll want to stop cooking after 10 minutes and shake the potatoes. This keeps the potatoes at the bottom from becoming underdone. Place the basket back in the air fryer and cook for another 10 to 15 minutes. (Total air fryer cooking time is 20 to 25 minutes.) Potatoes should be crispy and fully cooked.
When your potatoes are almost finished, it's time to add your cooking fat of choice to the pan. I use a quick spray of olive oil but ghee (if not dairy free) also works great. Heat pan to medium or medium low heat.
In a bowl, whisk together your eggs with a splash of water. This helps make them fluffy!
Pour your egg mixture into the hot pan. Salt and pepper. When your eggs are close to done add your spinach and tomatoes. Reduce heat to low. Stir and cover for 1 - 2 minutes. Spinach should be wilted.
To eat, layer your potatoes on bottom. Top with the egg scramble. Add a scoop of your favorite salsa and a drizzle of hot sauce (optional). Enjoy!
Nutrition information assumes you are dividing this into 2 servings. If you, like me, enjoy a really big breakfast in the morning you may be unwilling to share. I personally can eat this entire thing myself. And I do. So to calculate my nutrition information I'd just double what's shown here.
You can omit the oil completely when cooking potatoes in the air fryer. The end result is a little dry in my opinion but it really doesn't matter since you're layering so much yumminess on top. So, rest assured, if you want to limit your fat for this particular meal just leave the oil out.
