CAN YOU COOK HASH BROWNS IN AIR FRYER?
Absolutely. Air fryer hash browns patties are delicious when cooked in an air fryer.
There’s no spongy taste that many other hash browns do that typically happen when you cook them in a pan of frying or within the oven.
WHAT KIND OF AIR FRYER SHOULD I USE?
My Air Fryer is an 8-qt Ninja Foodi and i get my crispy hash browns after 18-20 minutes.
When you’re working with an air fryer with a smaller basket, they cook more quickly. Begin checking at 12-15 minutes and cook until the desired level of crispiness has been attained.
For models with smaller sizes, you might need to cook in two batches.
TIPS FOR USING AIR FRYERS
Preheating: Certain air fryers require preheating, while others don’t. Make sure you read your air fryer’s manual. Mine doesn’t require heating up. If your food is ever burned or isn’t cooked properly, this could be the reason why the recipe did not work for you.
Overcrowding: Don’t overcrowd your basket. Certain foods won’t cook as well or all the way through.
Oil: One of the main reasons that air fryers are amazing is that food doesn’t require a lot of oil. Only a tiny amount!
Each air fryer does not cook food in the same way. I check every half way to determine if the food is close to being done. If not you can cook it for longer.

AIR FRYER HASH BROWNS PATTIES INGREDIENTS
In addition to an air fryer, all you require to make is frozen brown hash patties. I bought them from local shops, and they are all delicious!
You could create your own hash brown patties by shredding potatoes before making them into patties, however, I’m lazy and prefer the taste of a hash brown patty that’s already made.
One thing I don’t suggest is frozen shredded hash browns in your air fryer. I’ve tried it before and it doesn’t perform. For me at least it doesn’t. The shredded hash browns will not seem to cook evenly. Food cooked in air fryers is prepared by circulating air over the top and the shredded hash browns simply fly everywhere unless you have something sturdy to anchor it with.
The frozen Hash Brown patties are better in this regard because they are slightly heavier and already shaped according to the size.
There is no need to spray with oil in any way since those frozen patties already contain oil within them. If you do decide to spray them with oil, the hash browns will get a greater “crispy deep-fried” texture.
HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER HASH BROWNS PATTIES?
Simply, if your air fryer needs heating, then you must preheat it. Some do not, some do. Layer the frozen hash brown Patties in the basket of your air fryer (you do not even require the grill pan for your air fryer) and ensure that they don’t get too crowded. Set the timer to 12 minutes and the temperature should be set to 350 degrees.
Be aware that the air fryers don’t cook food in the same way, so the above time may need to be adjusted to suit the air fryer you have.
TIPS AND F.A.Q.
What can I serve with Air Fryer hash browns Patties for breakfast?
Hash browns complement every breakfast menu. For a complete breakfast, you can add eggs, breakfast sausage, and toast. Of course, it’s also fun to have breakfast for dinner.
How long do you cook Hash Browns patties in an air fryer?
It’s all dependent upon the capacity of your air fryers as well as the amount of patties you’re making at the same time, however, I usually cook them in the air for around 12-minutes at 350°F. Flip the hash brown patties during cooking time to ensure uniform crispness across both surfaces.
WHAT KIND OF UTENSILS DO YOU NEED TO FLIP HASH BROWNS IN AN AIR FRYER?
It is recommended to always use plastic tools such as spatulas, since the coating of the air fryer’s surface is non-stick
Utilizing a spatula made of metal can make the basket scratch, and maybe even start to peel off the scratched areas.
When the coating is removed, the basket won’t be non-stick, which causes you to require more oil when cooking, and makes it more difficult to clean.
