Air Fryer Breakfast Burritos

This breakfast is full of protein, fiber, and flavor. You can make it by toasting tortillas in an air fryer for a few minutes. While they’re toasting, scramble eggs with your favorite vegetables like peppers, onions, and spinach. You can add cooked sausage or black beans for extra protein. Then, assemble your burritos with salsa, cheese, and avocado. The air fryer makes the tortillas crispy, which makes the burritos even more satisfying.

Air Fryer Hash Browns with Poached Eggs

Hash browns are a popular breakfast food, and the air fryer can make them even better. To make them, dice potatoes and toss them with olive oil, herbs, and spices. Then, air fry them until they’re golden and crispy. While the potatoes cook, use the air fryer to poach eggs in ramekins. Once everything is ready, assemble your plate with hash browns, poached eggs, a dollop of Greek yogurt, and a sprinkle of chives. This dish is restaurant-quality and can be made in under 20 minutes!
