Air Fryer Frozen Hash Browns vs. Microwave Hash Browns

I try to always have hash brown patties on hand because they are easy to make, kid friendly, and fill up my very hungry 7-year-old son. We discovered in kindergarten that he tended to have a better day at school when he had a filling breakfast.

So, I said goodbye to cereal and embraced eggs + sides for breakfasts. One of his very favorite thing to have at breakfast is hash browns. I would often make them in the microwave because it’s fast and I don’t have to hover over them like I do when they are on the stove. 

Cooking frozen hash brown patties in an air fryer

I decided to experiment with cooking frozen hash brown patties in the air fryer and I am so glad that I did! They don’t come out soggy like in the microwave and instead are crispy on the outside.

I love how convenient it is to have them on hand and am glad to have another way to cook them – in my handy air fryer! I made these in my air fryer oven, but they will also work in a basket-style air fryer
