  • Air Fryer


  • olive oil cooking spray
  • 16 ounces frozen tater tots


  • Preheat the air fryer to 400°F.
  • Spray the inside basket of the air fryer with non-stick cooking spray or olive oil cooking spray. Add the frozen tater tots to the basket and spay lightly with olive oil cooking spray.
  • Cook at 400°F for approximately 15 minutes. Gently shake the basket or slide the basket out and flip the tater tots over every 5 minutes. Add additional time if needed for crispier tots.
  • Remove and enjoy immediately.


  • I used the Cosori 5.8 quart XL to cook these frozen tater tots.
  • If you own a smaller air fryer or you are cooking a large number of tater tots, it's best to cook them in batches. Some overlapping in your air fryer is ok, but layers of tater tots or a big pile will result in soggy tots.
