How to Cook Air Fried Frozen Hash Brown Patties

Air fried hash brown patties are so delicious and addicting! Once you make frozen hash browns in the air fryer, you’ll never want to cook them any other way. Promise! These crispy patties are amazing: the texture is crispy, perfect without all the oil. You really don’t need to add extra oil spray at all because the frozen patties already have oil in them. But if you decide to spray with oil, the hash browns will just have a more “crispy deep fried” texture.

Can you cook air fried frozen hash brown patties in the air fryer?

Yes!  There’s so many different sizes of patties.  Also, each air fryer cooks a little differently. So you’ll have to adjust time and temp accordingly. Just use our temperature recommendations below and keep checking the potatoes. Once you cook your first batch, you’ll know what is the best time for your style of air fryer. These only work with the patties, not the shredded style hash browns. The pre-cooked hash brown patties works great and quick because they’ve been previously cooked.

What About Air Frying Shredded Hash Browns?

If you want to use the shredded style hash browns here’s what we suggest:

  • Allow the shredded hash browns to thaw completely and remove excess moisture.
  • Create small, very flat patties. The flatter they are, the quicker and crisper they’ll cook in the air fryer.
  • Add a liberal amount of oil to both sides of the shredded hash brown patties.
  • Air fry at the temperature recommended below in the recipe box. You might have to cook them a little longer so they can cook all the way through.
  • Also, make sure they’re crispy on top before you flip them. Yes, you have to flip them so they can brown and crisp on both sides.

Notes

Air Frying Tips and Notes:
  1. No Oil Necessary. Cook Frozen - Do not thaw first.
  2. Turn as needed. Cook in a single layer in the air fryer basket.
  3. Recipe timing is based on a non-preheated air fryer. If cooking in multiple batches back to back, the following batches may cook a little quicker. 
  4. Recipes were tested in 3.7 to 6 qt. air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, the hash browns might cook quicker so adjust cooking time.
  5. Remember to set a timer to flip as directed in recipe.

If your air fryer is preheated or if you are cooking multiple batches, you may need to reduce timing by a few minutes (unless preheating is called for in the recipe).
