How to make air fryer tater tots

  • Frozen tater tots
  • Air fryer
  • Non-stick cooking spray

Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees and spray the basket with some cooking spray.

Add a layer of tater tots.

Depending on your air fryer capacity you may be able to add more or less. Start with a single layer/small batch of tater tots and as you get to know your air fryer maybe you can add more.

Shake every 5 minutes until crispy and they have a light golden color – add more time for your desired crispness

Why use an air fryer

  • You don’t need to use your oven
  • Quick and delicious!
