Is This A Make-Ahead Recipe?
Yes, you can make this ahead in the air fryer accessory pan. When you’re ready to cook it the next morning, allow it to come to room temperature for about 20 minutes. That way it’s not going into the air fryer cold. It helps to have the ingredients not too cold so it can cook all the way through evenly. If you want an oven baked version, here it is.
Different Breakfast Meats to Use
You can use any type of breakfast meat for this recipe. Or if you’re a vegetarian, just add some extra onions, bell peppers or even spinach.
- Crumbled Bacon – everyone loves bacon so adding some extra crispy cooked bacon on top is a real treat.
- Bulk Sausage – You can use bulk sausage or sausage in the casing (remove the meat from the casing). Just pre-cook it before you add it to the mix.
- Chopped Deli Ham: Nice chunks of salty ham is always a treat.

Air Fryer Shredded Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole with Bacon
- 1 cup (210 g) shredded hash browns , lightly packed
- 3 slices bacon , cut into bite sized pieces
- 4 large eggs
- 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) milk
- 1/4 cup (30 g) cheese
- 1/4 diced red bell pepper
- salt , to taste
- pepper , to taste
- oil spray
- Coat the base of 6-8” accessory baking pan with oil spray. Spread hash browns in a single layer and spray with oil evenly over the hash browns. Divide the pieces of raw bacon on top of the hash browns. Place the filled baking pan in the air fryer basket/tray.
- Air Fry at 380°F/195°C for 10 minutes. Stir the mixture and continue Air Frying at 380°F/195°C for 2-3 minutes until the potatoes are cooked and bacon is crisp.
- In bowl combine eggs, milk, cheese, bell pepper, salt, and pepper. After the hash browns and bacon are crisped, pour egg mixture into the hash brown pan.
- Lower temperature and Air Fry at 320°F/160°C for about 12-15 minutes or until the eggs are set.
- If eggs are not completely set, then turn off the air fryer. Pierce a fork a few times in the center of the casserole and leave the casserole in the hot air fryer for about 5 minutes. This will help the eggs set without burning the top. Allow to cool slightly and enjoy!
If your air fryer is preheated or if you are cooking multiple batches, you may need to reduce timing by a few minutes (unless preheating is called for in the recipe).

How deep of pan does this need to be?
If it is a 7-8″ pan, it only needs to be about 1″ deep. We’ll mostly use the “pizza pan” from the air fryer accessory kits.
Question, I’m going to guess the hash browns are defrosted? You point out this can be made ahead, so thawed makes sense? Thanks.
Hi Clancy, thanks for the question. Yes, the shredded hash browns were defrosted. Thank you!
I’m so happy to find this really awesome air fryer recipe. My kids are constantly requesting for this. It’s so easy for me to whip this together and we always add extra cheese. 🙂
That’s awesome Millie! Extra cheese is always a nice treat. 🙂
This was fantastic! Added sausage and extra cheese! Cooked a extra 10 minutes! Will make again!
really awesome breakfast recipe. it’s filling but I don’t feel so guilty since I’m cooking it in the air fryer.
I enjoyed this recipe. Thank you for sharing it!
Glad you enjoy the recipe Shelly!
Sounds good but, What about grease from bacon, I worry about the excess fat with no place to drain? Can I precook bacon? Suggestion or comments from someone who tried it.
Cook bacon until crisp and add to the egg mixture. Make sure you spray dish with oil before adding thawed potatoes, and spray oil on potatoes so they will brown.
this is the best breakfast casserole I’ve ever cooked. I’m so glad we could cook this in the air fryer as well. makes things a lot easier.
This was such a clever recipe. Followed all the steps and the casserole was cooked perfectly.
