Air Fryer Tater Tots, one of the easiest air fryer recipes I can think of. I love a deep-fried crispy tater tot, but I don’t really need all the excess fat of deep frying.
Tater tots in air fryer satisfy my craving as well as using a fraction of oil. Tater tots have such a good childhood memory of eating them with hot dogs at a ball game or going to the local Sonic Drive-In for a coney and tots.
It’s simple. All you need is frozen tater tots in the air fryer. Open the bag of frozen tater tots and place them in the basket. I’ll give a few spray pumps of grapeseed oil from my oil sprayer. This ensures the tots turn out golden brown with that crispy crunch.
Air fryer tater tots temperature?
I set my Emeril Lagasse power air fryer oven 360 to 400 degrees. Not quite the hottest this air fryer will go, but I’ve found that 400 degrees will give these types of foods enough crispy crunch, without burning it quickly. I like my air fryer tater tots crispy, but not to the point where they are hurting my teeth!
How long to cook frozen tater tots in an air fryer?
Ten minutes should do the trick. If I was using one of my other air fryers, I would take out the basket at 5 minutes and give them a shake to make sure the tater tots are being cooked evenly. Be sure to give your best air fryer tater tots a dash of salt or any other seasoning when you are done, so the season sticks to the tots.
