This easy recipe for air fryer frozen tater tots is a game-changer for all the tater tot lovers out there.
The beauty of this recipe lies in its simplicity. All you need are your favorite frozen tater tots from the grocery store and your trusty air fryer.
Start by preheating your air fryer for five minutes at 390°F or 200°C. This step is crucial to achieving maximum crispness.
Next, place the frozen tater tots in a single layer in the basket of your air fryer. Lightly spray the tots with oil, toss them, and then respray to ensure all the tots are covered with oil.
Put the air fryer basket into the air fryer, set the heat to 390°F or 200°C, and cook for ten minutes. After 10 minutes, remove the air fryer basket and toss the tater tots to prevent them from sticking together.
Return the basket of tater tots in the air fryer, set the heat to 390°F/ 200°C, and cook for another 15 minutes. After 10 minutes, toss the air fried tots again and continue cooking until they are golden brown and crispy.
Finally, remove the crispy air fryer tater tots from the basket and serve them in a serving bowl with your favorite dipping sauce.
