Air Fryer Frozen Hash Browns

Growing up in Britain one of the main foods on a fried English Breakfast was always hash browns. It was up there alongside the sausages, bacon, fried eggs, beans, buttery mushrooms and fried tomatoes.

You would often use the baked beans to mop it up with and it would be unusual if you didn’t have one.

In the summer of 2018, we went travelling around Europe. We went to England among the many places we travelled to and had a few nights at the Premier Inn.

If you have not stayed at them, then you have missed out as they are fantastic!

It’s a cheap as chips and you have an incredibly comfy bed, a big bath asking for you to have a bubble bath, polite staff and you can pay a little extra for the breakfast buffet.

At the Premier Inn Breakfast Buffet, you get a fantastic selection of your breakfast favourites.

When we took the little ones, they were excited over the orange juice that came out of the machine, the endless supply of crumpets and of course the hot breakfast food.

Hash browns was on top of their list, as well as the beans and they couldn’t get enough.

For me though, I am not a big Fried English Breakfast fan. I prefer some sausages, some black pudding and some bubble and squeak.

Then for cold breakfast items I love fresh orange juice with crumpets.

Now back home in Portugal, we’re showing them just how easy it is to cook hash browns in the air fryer from frozen.

Let’s just say there was a few screams as they didn’t want to wait for the hash browns!

Can You Cook Hash Browns In Air Fryer?

Absolutely. Air fryer hash browns are simply delicious when you cook them in the air fryer.

They don’t have that soggy taste that a lot of other hash browns have, which typically happens when you cook hash browns in a frying pan or in the oven.

Hash Browns In Air Fryer

Here in Europe our hash browns tend to include incredibly small chunks of potatoes that are mashed up and then breaded before being fried. I think of them as being like lumpy mashed potatoes or very thin potato hash.

Yet others know them as triangle hash browns.

Though in the US, they tend to make hash browns from shredded potatoes, and they look more like a potato fritter.

Both versions of hash browns can easily be cooked from frozen in the air fryer.

Best Frozen Hash Browns Brand

Because the size of a frozen hash brown is identical with similar ingredients, you can cook any brand of frozen hash browns for the same amount of cooking time in the air fryer.

We used the Iceland brand which is only available in the UK, Spain & Portugal.

Go with whatever brand of frozen hash browns that you can find.

There is no such thing as the best frozen hash browns brand as they often packaged by the same factory for different manufacturers, instead go with the hash browns brand that gives you the best price.

How To Cook Frozen Hash Brown Patties?

Cooking air fryer frozen hash browns is very simple you don’t need to use:

  • Olive Oil

You simply layer out the frozen hash browns into the air fryer basket (you don’t even need the air fryer grill pan) and making sure they are not overcrowded, you cook them on medium until it beeps.

Then serve your hash browns with your English Breakfast or as a side for lunch or dinner.
