Frozen hashbrowns in the air fryer couldn't be easier or more perfect. In less than 15 minutes you'll have deliciously crisp and tender hashbrown patties. You don't even need to thaw them first!

  • Air Fryer
  • Spray oil safe for air fryer (optional)


  • 4 frozen hashbrown patties any size, any brand
  • ketchup optional, for serving


  • Preheat air fryer to 400° Fahrenheit. Lightly spray air fryer basket with spray oil if desired.
  • Place frozen hashbrowns in air fryer basket (or on air fryer racks) in one flat layer, being careful not to crowd basket (or racks) or overlap food.

  • If desired, lightly spray tops of hashbrown patties with spray oil (see Notes). Place basket in air fryer and cook 10 to 15 minutes or until hashbrowns are golden brown and crispy. Serve hot with ketchup (optional).

  • Cook Time: Note that cooking times will vary depending on the size and thickness of the hashbrown patties you use. Keep an eye on them, checking after 10 minutes, and adjust the time as needed, being careful not to burn the hashbrowns.
  • Spray Oil: Totally optional! A light spray of oil on top of the food generally helps it crisp up better in the air fryer, but I found with frozen hashbrowns you don't even really need it! They tend to crisp up well all on their own. If you like yours really crispy, though, you may want to spray the hashbrowns lightly in the beginning or at the 10-minute mark.
