Anyone else totally in love with their air fryer?!?!

Air fryers are great not only for quick-heating frozen foods, but also perfect for 'set it and forget it' style breakfast potatoes!

These potatoes are a variation of my favorite paprika potatoes recipe that I've been making for years. This time around, I made the same recipe but in my air fryer - and honestly, I don't think I'll ever go back to the skillet!

I just let the potatoes cook while I worked on poaching my eggs - just a couple shakes later and they were cooked perfectly tender.
