Crispy Hash Brown Patties in Air Fryer

Air Fryer crispy hash brown patties are a delicious snack. Once you make them in it you will never eat them any other way. Hash brown patties are my weakness, they are crispy outside and tender inside they are so delicious that you will want to eat them for breakfast every day.

Crispy Brown Hash Patties

Air fryers and hash browns go hand in hand. An ordinary frozen hash brown patty from the grocery store is transformed by the air fryer into a crispy golden patty that tastes exactly like the ones you get at MD. You should put them in the air fryer the next time you make breakfast, I promise.

The recipes are super easy, fast and a personal item in our breakfast routine when we have a lot of guests or family members so we make this constantly. 

Ingredients required

That’s it: frozen hash brown patties. All you need is that. Oil spray is not even necessary. Any brand works well, but my favourites are the hash brown patties from Cavendish Farms and McCain.

Frozen Crispy Brown Patties prepared in an air fryer

  • Your air fryer to 400 degrees before using it.
  • Put the frozen hash brown patties in the air fryer in a single layer and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, flipping once halfway through.
  • Feel free to cook the hash brown patties for a few minutes longer if you prefer a crispier texture. 3 to 5 extra minutes ought to be helpful.
  • You may make this dish with no oil at all because the majority of frozen hash brown patties already have oil in them from the time they were cooked.
  • The patties can be spritzed with a little oil using an EVO Oil Sprayer to rehydrate them if you do happen to notice that they are becoming too dry for your tastes.
  • While making these hash brown patties, I haven’t had to do this.
  • Take the patties out of the air fryer, let them cool for two minutes before eating, and enjoy!
  • It really is quite simple.

How to Cook Hash Browns Patties best, with tips

  • Can frozen hash brown patties be air fried in an air fryer? Yes! The sizes of patties come in so many variations. Additionally, every air fryer cooks somewhat differently. So you’ll need to change the time and temperature as necessary. Just follow the suggestions we’ve provided below and keep an eye on the potatoes.
  • Once you’ve cooked your first batch, you’ll be able to determine when to use your particular model of the air fryer.
  • These only function with patties; they do not work with hash browns that have been shredded. Because they have already been cooked, the prepared hash brown patties work well and quickly.
  • Oil spray is not necessary. Without additional oil, they cook up crisp. Although most of the types we’ve tried don’t require it, you may spritz them with oil if you’d like an even crispier crust.
  • Prepare frozen food. They don’t require thawing before use.
  • Make a single, even layer out of them. They won’t cook as evenly if you overlap them in the basket or tray of the air fryer.
  • For information on cooking, see the recipe box below.

Air frying shredded hash browns: what do you think?

If you want to use chopped-style hash brown patties then we recommended them here.

  • Chop the shredded hash brown allow it to decompose completely and remove the excess moisture
  • Make simple, extremely flat patties. They will cook in the air fryer more quickly and crispier the flatter they are.
  • The shredded hash brown patties should have a generous amount of oil applied to both sides.
  • Use the appropriate temperature for air frying in the recipe box below. To ensure complete cooking, you might need to cook them for a little longer.
  • Before you flip them, check to see if the top is crispy. Yes, you must flip them over so that both sides may become crisp and browned.

Recipe Notes and advice

  • Before placing the hash browns in the air fryer, do not defrost them.
  • There’s no need to oil the basket or the frozen hash browns before cooking because the majority of frozen hash brown patties already contain oil.
  • Make sure to modify the cooking time if your hash browns are bigger or smaller. My cookies are exactly the same size as those sold at McDonald’s.
  • The frozen hash browns won’t cook evenly if they are layered or stacked in the air fryer basket.
  • Since they don’t taste as nice when they’re reheated after being air-fried, I dislike making these frozen hashbrowns in advance. Make these as needed because they don’t require much work or time!
  • I don’t need to turn mine since the air fryer basket I use allows for a lot of hot air to circulate. You should rotate your hash browns if your basket doesn’t have a lot of spaces in it because else the hot air won’t get to the bottom of the food.
