How to make them

  1. Portion out your hash browns! A serving is usually one hash brown per person.
  2. Put two hash browns in the air fryer basket — or on your air fryer tray! If you have room for more without the hash browns overlapping or touching, feel free to cook more at a time.
  3. Air fry the hash browns at 380 degrees F for about 16 minutes, flipping the patties halfway through cooking. When they’re crispy and golden brown, they’re done!
  4. Garnish with your favorite condiments and a little pepper. Serve and enjoy!

You can use this frozen hash brown recipe with a unit with an air fryer basket or air fryer trays.
