Hash browns in the air fryer is the fastest way to cook them, plus they’ll be nice and crispy and golden brown. This air fryer hash browns recipe will work for any frozen hash brown patty or your generic store brand or favorite brand, but I’ve used Trader Joe’s hash browns in patty form here.

Serve them alongside your favorite breakfast mains (bacon egg and cheese bagel, steak egg and cheese bagel, or sour cream scrambled eggs!) or as a part of a breakfast for dinner spread with air fryer turkey bacon or breakfast sausage. Don’t forget the sweet cream cold foam coffee.
