Air Fryer Hash Brown Patties

Easy Air Fryer Hash Brown Patties save time and heat in your kitchen while making them super crispy for a family favorite!  These come together in less than 15 minutes and all you have to do is pop them in the air fryer.  I use parchment paper for easy clean up but you don’t have to. They have some oil in them so no oil or spray is needed.  

I use my Ninja Foodie as an air fryer and can do 3-4 patties at a time.  Cooking time and quantity will vary depending on your air fryer.  We make these with the Trader Joe’s Brand but there are a lot of other brands that make them as well.

Other Brands

There are so many fun uses for these. We use them for breakfast, lunch, breakfast for dinner or a fun side sliced instead of tater tots or fries.

Ways to Serve Air Fryer Hash Brown Patties 

      • With Eggs (and Bacon/Breakfast Sausage) – they are fantastic with a sunny side egg on top!
      • Side with steak (like tater tots, I like to slice them into sticks)
      • With a burger on top instead of a bun or sliced up on the side instead of fries or tater tots
      • Smashed Avocado as a gluten free option instead of toast (we love adding everything bagel seasoning)
      • As a side with sausage & peppers
