Tips for Cooking Tater Tots in an Air Fryer
Do not defrost them. You want them to be solid frozen when you put them in the air fryer.
Single layer. Only cook them in a single layer if you are using an air fryer with trays, do not stack them or they will not cook thoroughly. If you are using a basket air fryer then you can pour them into the basket, just take them out half way thru the cooking and give them a little shake.
Read your instructions. Some air fryers will require you to use cooking spray when you are using them, others don’t so be sure to check the specific directions for yours.
