Like I said before, I chose to make some Bell Pepper Hash Browns which are incredibly easy to make and near impossible to mess up. So, let’s get the ingredients together first:
2 cups tap water
½ TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
5 medium Russet potatoes, peeled and diced
½ Red Bell Pepper, chopped
½ Green Bell Pepper, chopped
½ medium Onion (your choice), chopped
½ Jalapeno, sliced fairly thin (optional)
¼ TBSP of each; Cumin, Chili Powder, Oregano, Garlic Powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
Alright, we have all our ingredients and after the potatoes are peeled and diced be sure to soak them in the water for atleast 30 minutes before cooking. This helps to speed up the cooking time and helps to ensure the best result.
Preheat the Philips Airfryer, using the easy to function buttons, to 330 degrees. While the Airfryer is warming and after the potatoes have soaked, drain them and pat them with a towel until as dry as possible.
In a large bowl, coat the potatoes with the olive oil and toss them in the Philips Airfryer basket. Fill the basket to the max line, there should be plenty of room, but don’t go above the Max fill line to ensure proper cooking. Cook the potatoes at 330 for 5 minutes.
While the potatoes are precooking, gather all your veggies and spices in the bowl used for the potatoes and mix with the remaining oil and coat the veggies.
Once the potatoes finish their first round of cooking, remove them and allow them to cool on a wire rack. Raise the temperature to 390 degress on the Philips Airfryer and allow to heat fully. As soon as the taters are cooled, add them with the seasoned veggies and mix until evenly distributed.
Toss the potatoes and veggies back into the Philips Airfryer basket, again, making sure to stay within the Max fill line. Cook at 390 degrees for 15-20 minutes stirring a few times between to ensure even frying. Remember that cooking times will vary on the thickness of your chopped items and the desired tenderness.
As soon as the Airfryer is finished cooking, turn the appliance off, remove the cooked taters and veggies, allow them to cool just a couple minutes and then toss them onto your favorite serving dish or large bowl.
It’s as easy as that! The great thing about the Airfryer is that it keeps the temperature as long as you need it and you can safely do other things while it cooks.
Here some recipe and serving tips for these Bell Pepper Hashbrowns:
- Add some prepared bacon bits, dice ham, or crumbled sausage for a complete meal in one.
- Also, some prepared scrambled eggs can be mixed in for some more protein
- After the Bell Pepper Hash Browns are done, top them with cheese, green onions, sour cream, or salsa and sides of ranch, ketchup, Sriracha , etc…
- Precooking for about 8 minutes, instead of 5, leads to crispier potatoes
There it is, Bell Pepper Hash Browns made in our Philips Airfryer. It was easy, quick, tasty, and much healthier than frying in a pan of oil. This recipe is so easy to make and even funner to recreate with whatever flavor your family may be wanting. Mix the spices up, change some of the vegetables, it’s easy to change it up because the Airfryer does the work while you do the creating!
Breakfast for dinner is awesome and I found a recipe in the Philips Airfryer Recipe Book that came with my appliance that I want to share with you. (Don’t worry, I will share more in upcoming recipe posts.) It’s a Mushroom, Onion, and Feta Frittata to die for and is so incredibly full of nutrients and wholesome ingredients that it’s a great way to start the day, boost the day, or even end the day! Here you go, Enjoy!!!
