The air fryer is my favorite way of cooking hash browns as they turn out deliciously crisp every time.
After roughly twenty minutes in the air fryer, you will have some of the most perfectly cooked hash browns. They cook to be slightly crunchy and loaded with flavor. I much prefer the air fryer over traditional cooking methods such as deep frying or oven baking.
This recipe will make enough hash browns for roughly two to six people. It heavily depends on whether you are feeding big eaters. I recommend making some additional side dishes to go with the hash browns.
Hash browns can vary quite a bit depending on where you live. For this recipe, we are focusing on frozen hash browns that are found in supermarkets in Australia. These hash browns might be like the ones available in your area.
You can make hash browns from scratch but it will require a bit of extra time in the kitchen. I find it much easier to simply buy them frozen straight from the supermarket.
Hash Browns Serving Ideas
Hash browns always go great as part of a delicious breakfast. My full breakfast usually includes bacon, poached eggs, hash browns, bread, mushrooms, and sometimes tomatoes. If you have an extra air fryer, you can cook the bacon in the air fryer as well.
You can serve the hash browns like loaded fries and top them with cheese, bacon, and much more. To do this, simply top the hash browns with the cheese, bacon, and other toppings and cook in the air fryer for another couple of minutes.
I love to add hash browns to a breakfast sandwich as it adds a delicious crunch to the sandwich. If you love all-in-one breakfasts, then I highly recommend that you give it a go. It is delicious.
