Air Fryer Tater Tots

  • 1 bag tater tots
  • salt to taste

Fry Sauce Recipe

  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard
  • 1/2 tablespoon vinegar
  • pinch of pepper


Air Fryer Tater Tots

  • Place the frozen tater tots in the air fryer basket into an even layer.
  • Air Fry the tater tots on the top rack for 5-6 minutes at 375 degrees F and then toss and cook for another 2-4 minutes or until desired crispness is achieved.
  • Once the tater tots are done remove them from the air fryer, sprinkle with a little salt and serve.

Fry Sauce

  • Combine the ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined. Serve right away or refrigerate until ready to enjoy.



  • The Cuisinart rack will fit an entire bag of frozen tater tots (regular size bag, not bulk).
  • How long you cook the tater tots in the air fryer will depend on the air fryer you're using.
  • We use a Cuisinart Air Fryer which has two levels. If you only have one just cook as is, but you may need to increase or decrease the cooking time, depending on how well your air fryer cooks
