For those of you on the fence on whether you should get an air fryer or not, I am officially telling you this is hands down the best tater tot maker. Ever. Or at least the Ninja Foodi Air Fryer Tater Tots are the new addiction in our house.
Ninja Foodi Air Fryer Tater Tots are the best made at home tater tots. So simple to make and ready in under 15 minutes. For extra crunch, make mini tater tots instead of the larger tater tots for the ultimate crispy to the soft inside combination.
Ninja Foodi Air Fryer Tater Tots
Now when I got the Ninja Foodi, I really thought I would be making Brussels sprouts non-stop but quickly discover my carb addicted family would quickly find that mini tater tots made in the Ninja Foodi with the air crisper function would really be our go-to food.
To make these in your Ninja Foodi dump half the tater tots, about 1 pound in a two pound bag, into the air crisper basket for the Ninja Foodi. Set the temperature for the air crisper at 400 degrees and time to 15 minutes. Then close the lid and hit start.
About halfway through the cooking time, stir the tater tots to break up any that are sticking together and to get new edges and parts of the tater tots exposed to the air fryer heat. Continue to cook. The amount of time you want to cook the tater tots depends on how crispy you want the tater tots. I like extra crispy tater tots so I tend to get pretty close to 15 minutes.
When the tater tots are cooked to your desired crispiness, pull them out of the Ninja Foodi or dump the air crisper basket onto a plate or in a bowl.
Seasoning the tater tots with sea salt or seasoning salt. Grab your bottle of mayochup and go hide from your children. At this point, you are putting 6 bags of mini tater tots and a 6 pack of mayochup on your grocery list.
