  • 16 oz Frozen Tater Tots (*Note 1)
  • Cooking Spray
  • Salt, To Taste


  • Preheat the air fryer to 400ºF. Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Spread out the tater tots on the air fryer basket so they don't touch. Spray with the cooking spray and sprinkle with salt.
  • Cook for 15 minutes, tossing every 5 minutes to evenly crisp. For even crispier tater tots, add an extra 2-3 minutes to the cook time.
  • Remove from the air fryer, divide between plates and enjoy immediately.



Note 1- If you have a large air fryer you can use the whole bag if the tots fit on the tray without overlapping.
