Ingredients

Air Fryer Tater Tots Ingredients:

  • 6 large potatoes or 8 medium, peeled
  • 2 tbsp corn starch (cornflour)
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt

Instructions

How To Make Tater Tots in Air Fryer:

  • Preheat the air fryer to 350 F / 180C.
  • Boil the potatoes till they are about half cooked and then plunge them into a cold water bath to stop the cooking process and cool them down.
  • Using a box shredder, shred the cooled potatoes into a large bowl, then squeeze out any excess water.
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients and combine. Then form the mixture into individual tater tots (I was able to make about 20).
  • Place half of the homemade tater tots into the air fryer basket (making sure they don’t touch) and cook for 18-20 minutes till golden brown. Turn the tots twice during cooking so that they brown evenly.
  • Remove the tater tots and keep warm, then repeat steps to make the remaining air fryer tater tots.
  • Serve your air fryer tater tots with a side of vegan ranch dressing or tomato sauce for dipping.
