- frozen potatoes-seasoned or unseasoned
If you are using unseasoned and want to add your own seasonings:

Preheat air fryer to 400°F. If you don't have a preheat feature, run your air fryer at 400 degrees f for 3-5 minutes.
Transfer the frozen potatoes to the preheated air fryer and arrange them in a single layer.
Air fry at 400 degrees F for 15-18 minutes, until potatoes are golden brown, shake or stir with a spatula, halfway through air frying.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING AIR FRYER FROZEN DICED POTATOES
Although you toss or flip the potatoes during the air frying process, you still don't want to put too many potatoes in the basket. Leave enough space for the air to flow so they can properly crisp on the outside.
I spritzed the potatoes with my olive oil sprayer so they would crisp up but still have that yummy fried taste.
If you are adding your own seasonings, by tossing them in the olive oil, it will give them extra crispiness and help them turn golden brown. The oil will also help the seasonings stick to the potatoes for the extra flavor you want.
VARIATIONS AND SEASONINGS
You can buy frozen potatoes that are already diced, and seasoned. If you want variety, add crumbled bacon or sausage, with chopped bell peppers and onions for delicious breakfast potatoes.
For cheesy diced potatoes, toss the potatoes with grated parmesan cheese, or wait until they are cooked and then top them with shredded cheddar cheese. Either way, they are delicious!
Try different seasoning mixtures with spices like chili powder or cayenne pepper for spicy potatoes. Or for a more savory side dish add garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, rosemary, thyme, or oregano.

When you are ready to reheat the potatoes, you can return them to the air fryer for 3-5 minutes cook time until they are heated through. Of course, you can also reheat them in the microwave, but they may not be as crispy.
