Crispy air fryer frozen tater tots! Delicious, tasty tater tots in your air fryer. They are beautifully crispy, and compared to deep fried tots, they’re much healthier.


  • 1 pound ( 500 grams) Frozen Tater Tots (Potato Puffs)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Preheat your air fryer.
  • Place the frozen tots in your air fryer basket and arrange in a single layer. Don't overcrowd the basket. No oil is needed.
  • Air fry at 356°F| 180°C for 8-10 minutes. Shake the basket halfway through cooking. 
  • If needed air fry further for 1-3 minutes or until crispy. 
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Enjoy!


Avoid filling your basket more than halfway full and you should be fine.

We recommend air frying at 356°F| 180°C for 8-10 minutes. Larger, thicker tater tots will require a cooking time closer to eight minutes, while smaller, thinner ones will likely cook through in five minutes.
