  • 6 frozen hash brown patties


  • Preheat air fryer at 200 C or 390 F for 4 minutes.
  • Lay the hash brown patties in one layer. I normally cook 5-6 in one batch but you can easily do 3-4 too.
  • Air fry at 200 C or 390 F for about 12-14 minutes till they are golden brown. You can air fry till 14 minutes for a nice brown appearance.
  • You can flip the patties once in the middle. Though I have cooked them without flipping and they turn out just as good.
  • Keep checking on them after 10 minutes to see how crisp they look. The time may vary a bit depending upon your air fryer as well as the size of the hash browns.
  • I have tested this recipe in my Philips Air fryer basket type. I can make 6 patties at one go. For my family of 4 I do 2 batches.
  • Take them out and serve them hot with ketchup or a dip for a satisfying snack or with air fryer soft boiled eggs and sautéed mushrooms along with sausages for a hearty breakfast. Enjoy!
  • Do check out the video for better understanding.


1. You do not need to add any oil while cooking since frozen hash browns already have oil in them. I always check the nutrition label and pick a brand that use low oil. 2. You can air fry for a couple of minutes more in case you want them to be darker. 3. I can cook 6 patties at one go in my Philips basket type air fryer, but you can easily cook 3-4 patties at one time too. There wasn’t much of time difference when doing a smaller batch. Just a minute or two less works. 4. If you do not preheat your air fryer, then you will need more time for the first batch.
