Air Fryer Savory Sweet Potato Hash
It’s not every day you have the time to make traditional Potato Hash for breakfast so why not try it in the Air Fryer? This method uses a lot less oil and butter and turns out crispy and soft at the same time. Once you make it this way you won’t make it any other way and you will probably make it more often.
Sweet Potatoes are Weight Watcher and Whole 30 Friendly!
As long as I’ve been on Weight Watchers, like my whole life, sweet potatoes or any kind of potato was never Weight Watcher friendly. But now, if you’re on the Purple Plan, Sweet Potatoes are 0 points!!! That means this whole dish would have 2 points! That’s it!! It’s also extremely Whole 30 friendly and of course Vegan as well!
There are so many great reasons to invest in an Air Fryer. I know…its one more appliance on your counter but it will quickly become one of the most used appliances you will own…I promise!
Here are a few pro reasons why an Air Fryer will make your life easier:
You use a lot less oil! In fact, just a spray or two of spray oil will be enough for most recipes.
Since you use a lot less oil with the Air Fryer the calorie and fat content will be greatly reduced. In fact, in some “diet plans” like Weight Watchers the point count will go from 3 or 4 to zero! No joke people!
For me, the Air Fryer takes less time to cook most recipes. It’s much smaller than a regular oven so the heat is more concentrated and intense.
If you’re like me I dread using my oven in the summer, just thinking about it makes me hot! With the Air Fryer there just isn’t any residual heat. It heats up fast and cools faster!!
If I was single I think I would use the Air Fryer 90% of the time.
If you have kids…it is a must. Frozen anything snacks can be made faster, crispier, healthier, and easier than using the oven! Seriously!!
What You Need to Make Air Fryer Sweet Potato Hash
This recipe uses a few fresh ingredients and comes out savory and satisfying!
Sweet Potatoes and Yukon Gold Potatoes… I used both kinds in this hash recipe. Why? because I love any kind of potato and I had them on my counter. Plus the variations in the colors and flavors are so beautiful together.
Onion… I used sweet yellow onions in the dish. I love onions. I think if I had a red onion in the refrigerator already cut I would have used it too.
Jalapenos and Garlic… I love jalapenos and garlic and putting them together with potatoes and onions is comfort heaven! Plus all of these ingredients crisp up so nicely.
Rosemary and Thyme… I use these herbs in so many of my dishes. They elevate most recipes from average to awesome. Note: these herbs can easily be grown in your BackYard Garden or in a nice patio pot year-round.
Seasoning… Garlic Salt or regular salt, pepper, Cajun Seasonings (optional). These spices make life a little bit better! 😁
