Optional: Lightly spray tater tots with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt or other seasonings of choice. Cooking spray and salt/seasonings are optional. However, cooking spray helps the tater tots from sticking to each other if you are cooking a larger batch.
Arrange tater tots in fryer basket leaving room so they do not touch each other.
Cook for 10-15 minutes.
Depending on your air fryer, the size of your fryer basket and amount of tater tots in the basket, you can shake the basket and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until you reach your desired level of crispness as needed.
Notes:Pre-Heating Air Fryer: I recommend pre-heating air fryer. However, if you choose not to pre-heat, add about 3-4 minutes to your cook time. Check for crispiness at the end of your cook time and add additional cook time as needed until your tater tots reach desired level of crispiness.Tater Rounds: Cook time approximately 8-9 minutes.Tater Tot Seasoning Ideas:
