Making FROZEN HASHBROWNS IN THE AIR FRYER is super easy and you get a nice, crispy hashbrown in just a few minutes!
I must confess something about my kitchen habits. I abuse my air fryer. I do this regularly.
The air fryer is supposed to be like a super-efficient oven, or an oil-free frying device.
Sometimes though, that is way too classy for my air fryer. I can’t have my air fryer getting all high and mighty on me. So I need to put it in its place. I do this by treating it as the worst appliance in any kitchen.
Yes, that’s right. I use it to cook frozen foods and heat up leftovers. Just so it remembers who the boss is.
I get all my joy out of this when I get to enjoy a well-cooked, evenly heated, crisp dish from my air fryer.
That is exactly what I did with these frozen hashbrowns. They’re just a frozen patty that I tossed in the air fryer, but they came out so delicious! Crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside like a perfectly cooked potato, and I got to remind my air fryer that it’s not too good for frozen foods along the way. 😉
Frozen hashbrowns – We use frozen hashbrown patties in this recipe, not “loose” hashbrowns. These are the kind like McDonald’s sells, but somehow better!
How to Cook Frozen Hashbrowns In an Air Fryer:
Turn up the heat – Spritz your air fryer basket with oil, or brush it on if you don’t have a mister. Place your hashbrowns in a single even layer in your air fryer basket. Cook at 400 degrees F for 5 minutes. Then flip your hashbrowns and cook for five more minutes.
Nope! Just throw the frozen patties in the air fryer.
