You’re going to LOVE how simple it is to make Frozen Tater Tots in the Air Fryer! Easily customizable and SO delicious.


  • Frozen tater tots (I find that half of a standard sized bag fits perfectly into my air fryer- roughly 16 oz total)
  • Cooking spray
  • Salt as desired
  • Seasonings as desired: garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, poultry seasoning, etc


  1. Pre-heat your air fryer to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place the tater tots in the basket of the air fryer and spray to coat with cooking spray. Toss gently and spray on the other side.
  3. Cook for 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway, until the tater tots are golden and crispy.
  4. ENJOY!


*I also tested this at 400 degrees for 10 minutes and it worked well but I find that they get crispier cooked at a lower temperature for a little longer.
