Hash Browns are a popular American breakfast side dish that contains potatoes that are diced, shredded, julienned or riced. They are then mixed with vegetables like pepper and onion along with some seasonings and then fried.

These hash browns are quickly and easily made with the help of your air fryer? Air fryers use dry circulating heat to cook all surfaces of the food resulting in crispy potatoes that take much less time to cook.

There are so many options to choose when it comes to purchasing an air fryer, popular brands include: Gourmia, Philips XL, GoWise, Farberware, Bella, Chefman

The best air fryer in my eyes will always be the Ninja Foodi, not only can you get appliances that are sturdy and last a long time, they can be used for so many different cooking methods. I use my Ninja Foodi, Ninja Foodi Grill and my dual air fryer when making all kinds of foods.

❔FAQ

Can I add aluminum foil to my air fryer?

This depends on the type of air fryer you have and where you’re putting the foil. I like to put the foil UNDER the basket to catch any excess oil or grease that comes off the sausage. This eliminates the need to clean the entire air fryer and you’ll just use the basket. If the foil is in a position where it can become loose, it may get sucked into the heating element when the air circulates so be sure it’s weighed down properly.

Do I need to preheat my air fryer?

Some recipes require preheating and some don’t. For this recipe, you’ll need to preheat your air fryer to make sure the potatoes get extra crispy.
