Recipe Tips

  • We usually make hash brown patties since they are easier to cook and flip. Loose hash browns might fall through the cooking tray.
  • We didn’t add any additional oil to these hash browns – depending on the brand there’s usually enough oil in the patties.
  • You don’t have to thaw these hash browns at all. They can go right in the air fryer from the freezer and they’ll cook just fine!

Step by Step Instructions

It’s super easy to make frozen hash brown patties in the air fryer. If you’d like to see exactly how we make ours, check out the process photos below.

First, preheat the air fryer to 385 degrees Fahrenheit.

Once your air fryer is hot, add the frozen hash browns to the air fryer tray. The patties shouldn’t touch and should be in one even layer.

Cook the frozen hash browns for 10-12 minutes total. It’s important to flip the patties halfway through the cooking time. We like ours crispy, so we usually leave them in for 12 minutes.

The exact cooking time can vary depending on the brand of hash browns and the air fryer – so keep an eye on them towards the end.

If they are not done yet, you can leave them in for a bit longer.

When done, carefully remove them from the air fryer and serve with your other breakfast or brunch items. They go great with ketchup!

Storage Tips

You should only make as many air fryer hash brown patties as you need. They don’t taste that great once they have cooled off or been stored in a sealed container in the fridge (even just overnight).

The moisture eliminates all the crispiness and they just aren’t as good as fresh out of the fryer.

Serving Suggestions

Hash browns are usually a breakfast or brunch item. They can be part of a savory breakfast with eggs, bacon, sausage links or sausage patties.

These hash browns can also be the savory side to a sweet breakfast with French toast, waffles, or pancakes.

We usually like eating our hash browns the old-fashioned way with ketchup for dipping!
