Recipe Notes and Pro Tips 

  • These recipes here cook the veggies from frozen. Please do not thaw them first.
  • If you want crispy hash browns, then break up the frozen potatoes before air frying, as larger clumps may not crisp up. Like with frozen peas, you can whack the packet against the counter to break them up.
  • Don’t overcrowd the basket. The air needs to circulate to cook the food evenly and crisp it up. Work in multiple batches to cook crispy hash browns. Cook the first batch then remove and add subsequent batches.
  • If you want them extra crispy you might need to add more oil and cook them for a few more minutes.
  • Check out some of my favorite things to use to make this recipe.
  • Be careful when you flip the patties so that they do not break during the cooking process. Use a spatula to turn them as well as to avoid scratching the basket.
  • Larger pieces of hash browns may need to cook for an additional minute or two
  • Season these Air fried hash browns to taste, and don’t skip the salt.
  • Check out how to clean an air fryer well after cooking to avoid the transfer of food smells.
