Tips For Perfect Hash Browns
Here are some tips to having success with air fryer hash browns. I had to make these a few times to get it just right. You will definitely want to keep these tips in mind so you can achieve that perfect crisp.
- Frozen Hash Browns: Always make sure that you use frozen and pre-shredded hashbrowns. Fresh hashbrowns result in soggy potatoes!
- Don’t Overcrowd: Your hash browns should be layered evenly in the air fryer basket. Overcrowding the potatoes won’t cook them evenly. If you buy a bigger bag of hash browns, then make sure to cook them in batches because you won’t be able to cook them all at the same time.
- Do Not Thaw: Use the frozen hash browns straight from the freezer because you don’t need to thaw the frozen potatoes first.
- Flip: Flip the hash browns halfway through the cooking process. This allows the hash browns to crisp up because it helps to cook them evenly on both sides, then use a spatula to help you flip the potatoes.
- Adjust Time: You may need to adjust the cooking time on your air fryer because other brands can cook differently. If you need to cook them longer, then just add 1-2 minutes until it reaches your desired crispness.
