How Long To Cook Tater Tots In Air Fryer

Air Fryer Tater Tots (4 Servings)


  • 1 lb of frozen tater tots
  • cooking spray
  • coarse salt


  1. The first step is to heat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit/205 degrees Celsius. For crispy tater tots, this first step is extremely crucial.
  2. In the air fryer basket, pour in the frozen tater tots. Lightly spray them with cooking spray, then season them evenly with coarse salt. Afterward, toss the tater tots gently to coat them. If desired, season them with additional seasonings.
  3. Cook the tater tots for 5 minutes, then stop and shake the basket before continuing the cooking process for another 5 minutes. Shake the basket frequently to prevent frozen potato tots from adhering together and ensure that all sides receive air exposure, resulting in crispness all around.
  4. Check to determine if the tater tots have developed a sufficiently crispy quality to your liking. Cook for an extra minute at a time until they reach the perfect doneness and crispness, if necessary.
  5. Serve the air-fried tater tots alone or with an accompanying dipping sauce. Traditional dipping condiments, such as ranch, ketchup, barbecue sauce, and even blue cheese dressing, are popular favorites you can explore. They have a neutral flavor and will go well with almost any sauce. If you prefer your food spicy, try a bit of sriracha.

This recipe for air-fried tater tots is extremely quick and easy, taking a total active cook time of 10 minutes. At the end of the cooking period, the delicious crispness of your tater tots will be unmatched, and don’t be surprised if you find yourself stuck on this recipe for a while.
